It's going to be Glorious

I don't think I've ever been this excited for Summer.  Little hints keep springing up all over the place - new bits of green overnight, the frogs coming out of hiding around the pond's bank, and just a tad more daylight every evening.

The girls and I decided to practice, just to make sure we have the routine down pat
when Summer finally gets here.
 Pumped up the inner tubes, laid out the towel... looking good.  Some opted for the icy water - while others... being myself, sought no greater happiness than acting lifeguard while delving into a lovely summerish book and lolling on the soft young grass.  Oh, and snapping a bit.

This routine is something I could get used to... it's going to be a simply glorious summer!

.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.

P.S....
Um... is that a bundle of zippers, Kellie?

Yup - I've been sewing up a storm lately, and got all stocked up on zippers. I took my latest order of them along with me and took a picture... I know, I know.  Art.  
They're simply beautiful, don't you think? ;D

I discovered the Zipit Etsy shop awhile back while pricing zippers, and I just love it!  Jennie is simply the sweetest, and her shop's customer service is top notch.  Lightning fast shipping, and practically any and every kind and color of YKK zipper you'd ever want.  For the best value I can find.

And... just in case you're not yet convinced that you need to go stock up on these lovelies, readers of Accordion to Kellie have been provided with a special offer.

Happy zipping!

Hello, Spring

At long last, Spring has sprung in my corner of the world.

It's definitely a milestone in my life - I made it.  Survived a whole winter in North Idaho in a wall tent 
- check.  

I was wondering if I would be able to do it, last year... and I did it.  It's intensely satisfying to see a dream accomplished.  And with the coming of a new season, full of fresh, new life, warm, sun dappled mornings, and clear balmy air sweet with birdsong, it feels like I've graduated.

Definitely time to hang out the hammock and celebrate!
What has this spring brought to your life?

Outfit | Queen Bee

 One Sunday afternoon while we were down in California last month, Ellen and I took a walk down this beautiful abandoned road.  An old, forgotten orchard lay underneath the setting sun, and in the distance vineyards spread, carefully pruned. 

We were so happy to have a break from working in the vineyard - for the record, my hands were too sore to hold a hairbrush.  Yet somehow I managed to hang on to my pruners! :)
 Torrential rains all the week before gave way to this dreamy landscape just before sunset, where the sleeping buds of spring were just on the verge of pushing through their harsh winter beds.

The sun felt good.  Really good.  I haven't worn sandals for...seven months?  My bare feet rejoiced!
...

My wardrobe is full of greens, blues, and pinks - floral colors are my favorites.  So when I saw this combination of black broomstick skirt next to a mustard tee in my suitcase, I was dubious.  But then I saw my hat and flipflops sitting there, and I couldn't resist:)  Black + yellow - way too much fun!

Happy clothes - hamming sisters.  A day of rest and sunshine.


Just a perfect afternoon.

Loving Lately, Vol. 1

A little series to keep track of and share - 
simply what I've been loving lately!

In love with this newly-discovered vintage inspired footwear company, Bait!  My favorites are in the Ida line, especially in green


And NICA of London's handbags are truly swoon-worthy... I am enthralled with this mustard number.  Roomy? Practical? Detailed?  And those little birds... Yes please.
Wouldn't this be the perfect camera bag?

The Ruche Spring wedding lookbook - delicious.

This patchwork floral wing back sofa... someday I need to make one.  Can you imagine having this in your home!

This adorable blog post.

What have you been loving lately?
