It's spring and if you're looking for a way to add a little color indoors, ceramics is the answer. This piece brings the beauty of an early spring flower and a beautiful butterfly to life. As a bonus, you can choose colors to complement your decor. I love the changing of the seasons. You can see Nature's reactions to the warmer temperatures in the spring and the bonus of an added hour of daylight in the evening means we are ready to get started with those outdoor activities. But until spring is really and truly here, let's paint something happy. And this piece is sure to bring some warmth to your home over the long months of next winter.
