Oh where, oh where has my little Spring gone?

I knew we were going to be spoiled. About 3 weeks ago, we had signs of Spring. Like real signs of Spring (for NY anyway). The sun was shining, the temps made it into the high 50s, I was taking nice long walks outdoors, finally able to ditch the boots and down jackets. was heaven.

And then just like that--it was gone. All just a passing memory. It's been cold and gray ever since. I think it was 9 degrees overnight on Saturday. That darn Spring, it pulled the rug out from under us!

My husband & I had to go to a dinner dance Saturday night and there was no way that the cold was going to get the best of me. I refused to wear a coat over my dress and of course, no pantyhose, even if I did have to freeze my legs off. I would not sacrifice style for the cold. No I most certainly would not. So there, cold! See? I won!

While I'm continuing to search for Spring, I took a detour and ended up at @ etsy. (as though I have nothing else to do). I needed to get myself in the spirit and thought that maybe Spring was hiding out there. Wanna see some pretty Spring things?

How adorable is he? From The Bakers Daughter

Perfectly pretty in pink from JBM Designs

Isn't this lovely? From Eight Seasons Warning: This etsy shop has some seriously beautiful bags! (Don't say I didn't warn you.)

Aren't these great? From Daisy Chestnut

So there you have it--some of my favorite etsy finds.
And hey, if you have found Spring, can you please give it a gentle nudge (or maybe just a big, old, nasty shove) in my direction? Thank you. Happy Monday!
