Friday Finds: Wishing for Summer

I think all of us are a bit tired of Winter. I'm ready for flowers and sunshine and all of that summer stuff! Here are some ways of surrounding yourself with summer even during the dreariest times.

johnwgolden's lovely print of "Enlightened Fireflies" reminds me so much of chasing around fireflies as a kid.

Summer is a time of cute and comfortable skirts for me, and I absolutely love all the ones from Made with Love by Hannah - here's her sunniest skirt, the April Showers skirt.

I was never a Girl Scout, but I had a few badges from Girls in Action (a church-related group). I always wanted more, and now I can have them, thanks to leemeszaros I can try to add "being a sweetie pie" to my merit sash. (I may never earn this one).

Last, but not least, I love the custom decals available on etsy. Here are some cheery summer trees to brighten your wall (from artwallproject) so you can ignore the real weather.

Knowing me, I'll post wishing for snow in summer. For the moment, take a few, get warm, and let an imaginary summer whisk you away.

I love all your things that are helping you have a summer wish! You should include the beach too!!

Oo! Good point! I'm going to think about doing a beach one when it's closer to beach time :)!

Ooh! I love that skirt! Did you see this week's Spoonflower contest? There is a moon bunny border fabric that would work with that pattern!

@naiadkitty: I seriously need to make some skirts. Can we meet up sometime so I can show you my favorite skirts and you can tell me which ones are too ridiculous for me to make?
