A Week of Spring — Pink and Green

Spring shoppingIt’s day No. 2 in A Week of Spring and we’re taking a look Spring shoppingat those wonderfully fresh and pretty spring colors that make us smile. I spend most of winter in black turtlenecks, so as spring approaches I’m definitely ready for something different. I love finding blooming spring colors in unexpected places, like this gathering of pink, green and yellow at Harrison Brothers Hardware in Huntsville, Alabama. On the city square since 1879, Harrison’s is part museum, part antique shop and part gift boutique. These spring gotta-haves were between the massive old safe and the tempting candy aisle. Sweet! I’d take everything, from the pink and green toile trays to the mint-green glasses. But my favorite is the pink-and-blue paisley ice bucket. For some reason I cannot resist cute ice buckets. I’ve got a gazillion, including washtub-sized ones we’d need for my daughters’ high-school parties and smaller sizes like this one that are perfect for book-club night. I mean, really, how many ice buckets do you need? But that’s what spring does to you — makes you start planning parties out on the deck. With plenty of pink and green. Come back tomorrow for day No. 3 in A Week of Spring.

  1. I would buy that pink and blue bucket. You’ll be glad you did. It’s perfect for holding ice and beverages for either picnics or girls night book club. If I lived nearby, I’d buy it for you, and one for me!

  2. Ooh, timely post. Just last night I took advantage of a sale at Lands End to get a pink tote for my daughter and a green tote for my son. Monogrammed of course! I think I was having a preppy moment.
