Kirbee Lawler said...

What do i love about spring the most? When you are on a train on the way to just another day on a monday morning, and all of a sudden the sun comes peeks out from behind the morning cloud, and a burst of wind through the open train windows carries the smell of grass. It is really quite hard to feel bad for the rest of the day when you realise that this is all waiting for you as you travel back home...

My favourite item would have to be the feather brooch :)


Anonymous said...

I love that sudden realisation you have one evening that it's almost 6pm and still light; knowing that all those long spring and summer evenings are just around the corner.

I LOVE your wren ring and your feather ring and can't decide between them. Please don't make me. There might be tears.

Congratulations on 300 posts and your beautiful made it store. And thanks for sharing the celebration with us in such a generous way.

Lacee Howard said...

You're going to laugh at me for my cliche career-relevant answer to question one.
It's the flowers. I love the flowers in spring. Being a florist, it's so nice to come into a new season and get to use the flowers that come with it. Spring in particular is good because we can cheat and pick flowers from our own gardens to use at work, which is always nice.
It's also good to get rid of the cold, red nose and get some bloody sunshine finally.

My favourite piece on madeit is the Winter Woods brooch. Which, even though it's a RABBIT, reminds me of Bellah when she stands on her hind legs to eat the cordyline plants in my house, and her front paws go all floppy and her ears stick up. Silly Bellah hahaha.


Teneale said...

I love Spring because I normally take holidays at this time of year, and can run away from work for a week. Bliss!

My fave item would be your That Vintage single bird brooch. That took a reeaaallly long time to decide. But yes I love him the most.

1. Spring is one of my favorite seasons - falling in second place to Autumn.

Spring is just such a refreshing time of the year where greenery and flowers burst with color and the weather isn't bitter cold, but a coolness with warmth fills the air. I just love being outside during spring. So many good things about it.

2. My favorite piece from your shop is Winter Woods - Necklace

Loris Glassworks said...

1. I love the new buds on the trees and spring flowers, new baby animals and a day at the beach (finally!).

OldFashionAllies said...

Wow! 300 posts! Congrats! I'm at 9 posts... I have a long way to go to catch up!

Take Care,

Spring! Oh how I love thee!
I love that you can smell the seasons changing. I love that you can see new life springing up everywhere. I love the crickets and cicadas that start buzzing in the evenings and I love that everyone gets so much happier in the spring.

danielle said...

that vintage bird garden pendant- beautiful...and my favourite thing about spring- my two babies birthdays- my son turning two next week, and my second son expected any day now!


Jodie said...

I love seeing the cherry blossoms...so I can steal some every few days for vases around my house. But mostly it's about seeing the flowers in bloom.
My favourooni is the Leafy Branch brooch (because it reminds me of Spring).


(if anyone else adds me to their mailing list, I will cut them....after I king hit them)

michvanetta said...

I love the smell of spring rain especially after the grass has been freshly cut together - reminds me of my childhood.

I love That Vintage Bird Brooch, very cute!


Anonymous said...

The thing I love the most about Spring is that a rainy day doesn't feel sad. Rain in Spring makes me think of all of the thirsty plants in my garden soaking it up & preparing to flower. And you know the sun will come out the next day for certain! My Favourite item is still your feather brooch (which I own) and always will be!

lauren said...

my favourite part of spring is playing outside in the fresh spring breeze
