It’s exactly one week until the official start of spring and I can smell it in the air.
On Saturday we went to Clifton in Bristol for a mooch about, and sat outside to have a cup of tea and a piece of salted caramel brownie. Sure, we had coats on, and fiancé had a stylish flat cap, but we were outside nonetheless. It was lovely. The sky was just that little bit hazy, like the very beginnings of a hot summer’s day.
We went for a look in Papersmiths, the achingly cool stationery shop that’s opened recently in Clifton, and I looked around at all of the things I would take pictures of for Instagram, if only I was a little better at photography and not a little afraid to start taking pictures in somewhere so clearly out of my league style wise.
Back outside, after I had swooned for a while over a particularly expensive but wonderfully shaped and shiny pair of scissors, we walked around to a junk shop we both like. Opposite was a florists, and as technically I was in the street rather than in a shop, I felt brave enough to take some pictures. These for me sum up just how much I’m looking forward to spring.
What are you most looking forward to about spring?
Love that top flower pictures. Gorgeous crates and display. I’m a big stationery fan but we don’t really have any specialist shops near us unfortunately (although luckily for my bank balance)
