Spring CleaningAlthough it is still very much winter here in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, there have been subtle hints that spring is around the corner. I saw a flower in bloom the other day, the sun is showing its face more, and the days are slowly getting longer. I know that in the Northwest, it has been a long and snowy winter. People are sick of it and ready to get outside to go hiking, camping, or just sit on their patio with a nice glass of wine.
One thing I look forward to in March is Spring cleaning. After a winter like this one, many chores were put off and that time was spent shoveling or plowing. I’m ready for a full home makeover. Out with the old, in with the new. It’s time to go through the cupboards, drawers, closets and get rid of the non-necessities. I need more color on my walls to chase away the winter blues.
Luckily, at Pinot’s Palette we have a whole lot of paintings this month with a Spring theme. I plan to attend these classes and fill my walls with bright colors and signs of life. This will surely lighten the mood and hopefully encourage the snow to melt away until next year. If you need something to lighten your winter blues, come see us at Pinot’s Palette and see if some therapeutic painting and a glass of wine (or two) is the cure! Paint. Drink. Have Fun.
