Hello Winter, Meet Spring

Good day green fans! Winter's getting a taste of sweet Spring. The sun's warm on our pale winter skin and the icebergs are melting away into Lake Michigan.

This St. Patty's we're going a little feminine. With Poetic Licence shoes, a ladies Modcloth dress, American Eagle Cardigan, and some delicate Modcloth polka dot tights. And last but not least, a .sprouts. moonstone necklace draped from a beautiful gold chain. I hope you like what you see.

A Spring's St. Patty's Eve

It's St. Patty's Day Eve and you can bet loads of those with any inkling of Irish in them are hanging with friends tonight! My husband and I will be downtown Grand Haven opening up for Tim Brietals. We would have played all night, but we, quite honestly, find it exhausting :) We're getting old I suppose. Anywho, this was my "Spring Inspired" St. Patty's Day outfit for the day. Enjoy :)

March Give-A-Way

Every month I try to do two give-a-ways. This month I'm giving away a set of three stacked bangles made from solid copper. Each bangle has been textured with a different hammer and has an incredible rugged quality. They have been riveted together with sterling silver rivets.  These will be made to order so the winner will have a custom fit set.

Let's do this!
Be the one to get as many of your friends to LIKE my .sprouts. Facebook page by Saturday, March 16th and their yours. It's that simple! Just make sure to tell your friends to tell me you sent them so I know.

Sun Hungry

Ahhh, the time is March and the sun hungry Michiganders can't take the heaven's back n' forth on Winter & Spring. Some days it's snow. Some days it's rain. Some fly south like a bird. Some lie in sun scape tombs to escape the winters chill and soak in a little vitamin D. No matter how we cope, we know Spring can't come soon enough. Please Spring. Please come soon!

Your Perfect Day's Destination

Today I made some Bridesmaid's Necklaces for a bride who plans to get married in Northern Michigan in Traverse City. Beautiful wine country with vineyards and gorgeous beaches. Just imagine your bridesmaids wearing a necklace with a heart over the place you and your love made your life's vows to one another! What more perfect gift! I was so honored to be a part of their special day.
