I know it's kind of a big preview--hopefully not too big. Andy painted the photo backdrop white last weekend (so no more annoying wrinkles in the backdrop fabric, hurrah!), and maybe I got a little carried away with the photos.

Enjoy the results of my crazed productivity: there are lots of great things for spring and summer here! In fact, I'm getting a bit of a picnicky, gin & tonics-on-the-lawn vibe from some of it. Although those days won't be here in chilly springtime Michigan for a little while yet.
