Ostara – The Festival of the Trees

Apparently I’m in a big LJ updatey mood. Today is Ostara, the Festival of the Trees. Happy Ostara everyone!

Matthew and I left beer bread and bourbon balls out under the topiary tree for the visiting faerie folk. Look what they left us!

It’s a Dianne Shapiro soft sculpture tuffet/ottoman. I saw one like it at a Caribou Coffee and just fell in love with it. I’ve got a passion for whimsical things. Dianne Shapiro has this line of humane trophies including plush bear rugs, animal heads and “other ends,” and of course, tuffets! Absolutely adorable. Stuffed animal furniture. Gotta love it.

Matthew also got me Wolf Wing a new Tanith Lee book. And I got him the complete Series One Wodehouse Playhouse on DVD.

We went out for breakfast and it’s amazing outside. The trees are sprouting these gorgeous colored blooms. Even the ground covering is coming out in lavenders and yellows. I love spring in Georgia.

    Oh that is great! I want!

    Congrats on writing being interrupted by sales, btw. I wish I had that problem… 😉 *gives you a high five from far away*

    And Happy Ostara to you as well (though a bit late at this point). I had read your entry about the holidays Friday and thought about you while gaming Saturday. It’s the height of blooming here. Sometimes I don’t mind living on the doorstep of hell.
