Spring has officially arrived and I am so ready for a change in temp. I used to love winter but as I have gotten older, it’s been pushed to the back. I’m just tired of being cold, bundling up in 60 million items of clothes (okay a total exaggeration but sometimes it feels that way), and I miss all the beauty of trees and flowers in bloom. I’m just tired of it. AND I would not be a true Canadian if I did not complain about it, ha!
For today’s post I wanted to cheer myself up and maybe some of my readers who are in the same boat and share some lovely Vintage Spring magazine covers and advertisements.
