You may have heard that the northeast has had some recent weather challenges. We've had something like 4 feet of snow in the past 12 days ,and it's not over yet. For those of you who romanticize winter in New England here's a little glimpse!

All those blue and turquoise beads are delicious with the rusty black. Maybe I'm going a bit overboard with those colors?? Maybe a little too much summer daydreaming??? I think those little pink-ish rose beads are keepers and will find their way into one piece in this collection or another. Don't you just love them paired with the rusty black copper?
Color is important but I also love to add texture. Truthfully, I love multiple textures. Here are a few contenders in that same color palette. Hmmm, how can I use them in a way that isn't too labor intensive and get some pieces completed?
So while the snow has been swirling outside these are some of the ideas that have been swirling around in my head. Time to stop daydreaming and get to work on these beauties. According to that maddening groundhog it seems like we've got plenty more winter left but still I want my Rustic Garden to be ready for that first day of Spring!
If you've got some suggestions about color, design or even snow shoveling, please leave me a comment!
