Thursday Thrill – Aquamarine

March, the dawn of spring and the twilight of winter, a month of inbetweens. Cold breath, warm expectations, life standing still, but wind rustling her into pressured movement. Like a great swell from the sea, blue winds of early spring rise to remind the earth to green.

March: An Ode

"Ere frost-flower and snow-blossom faded and fell,
       and the splendor of winter had passed out of sight,

The ways of the woodlands were fairer and stranger
       than dreams that fulfill us in sleep with delight;

The breath of the mouths of the winds had hardened on tree-tops
       and branches that glittered and swayed

Such wonders and glories of blossom like snow
       or of frost that outlightens all flowers till it fade

That the sea was not lovelier than here was the land,
       nor the night than the day, nor the day than the night,

Nor the winter sublimer with storm than the spring:
       such mirth had the madness and might in thee made,

March, master of winds, bright minstrel and marshal of storms
        that enkindle the season they smite."

Algernon C. Swinburne

  2. The jumper is AMAZING. {Albeit, if I were to wear it, I'd end up looking like one of Jim Hensen's Muppets.} Also, I must have the perfume bottle.

    XOXO,

  10. Beautiful colors and the featured items are beautiful. I love how the same color can look vibrant & playful, wise & aged, mysterious & mystical - each work has it's own personality.
