{spring inspirations}

I'm all about spring. Even though there is still snow on the ground and the temperatures are still below freezing, the fact is, I need inspirations to remind me that spring is truly around the corner.
These robin-egg shades of blue remind me that Easter is on its way and those true harbingers of spring--eggs & birdie tweets--are close at hand:

 This decor also seems to me to speak 'spring'--light, peaceful colours, with shots of yellow for brightness:

 These touches of bulbs, flowers, & flowering plants from fraeulein-klein and featured on decor8 really do evoke spring:

and I love love love blossoms. Growing up on Vancouver Island, you can't have spring without cherry blossoms: 
These photos below by Julia Dávila were recently featured on decor8 as well. Julia's site is fantastic--you ought to check it out. How lovely are these images to remind you of the glories of spring...and what follows spring, but summer vacations & travels?:

 There's something springy about these Violet May prints:

These lovely book covers by Coralie Bickford recently featured on design*sponge also scream 'spring':

 With spring, comes bike-riding. To inspire, some images of bikes & cute outfits to go with:
