    I'm looking forward to getting the whole family back out into the garden to clear the beds and plant some new seeds. I'm also looking forward to the daily rituals of tending the garden, once again.
    And I absolutely love the Paxton doll from Warm Sugar! My lil' guy's birthday is coming up, and he would just adore one!

  • Missus D says:

    My favorite of your sponsors would have to be Warm Sugar! She has the best dolls around. Absolutely love them!

    For Spring, I am looking forward to doing flea markets for the first time in Munich. Munich is a new city to me, different culture and all, and doing flea markets is just a great way to integrate!

  • Lazy Apples says:

    I am soooo excited!!! I've been asking my husband to get me a polaroid camera!

    As I look out my window at the 2 feet of snow we've gotten over the last couple of days, I think of seeing those first tulip and daffodil buds pop up from the ground, often through a thin layer of unmelted snow.

    My favorite sponsor is Warm Sugar. I love all of her work. I just got my daughter her first Warm Sugar baby doll. I can't wait to get her a big one. I want one too!

    Gosh I hope I win!!! Thanks!

  • Manuela says:

    I'm currently living in The Netherlands, that means lots of rain and dark days. I'm looking forward to get the sun, longer days and cycling around the city. And of course taking pictures of the green trees and the canals!!

    I love the Pirate Baby Custom Made by Warm Sugar.

  • oh! LOVE polaroid!
    so glad spring is coming… looking forward to warmer weather and strolls in the park. it will be fun to introduce my baby girl to grass and blue skies!

    i am so in love with Lisa Leonard's sweetheart tree necklace. hubby carved a tree with a big heart and our initials on a camping trip we took together before we got married, so imagine how giddy it made me to see that necklace?!

    love your blog! i mostly lurk here from google reader, so thanks for the chance to win something so cool!

  • CourtneyKeb says:

    Last spring I was sleep deprived and locked indoors with a brand new baby girl.

    THIS spring, she's running around and busy as a little bee.

    I cannot wait until it's warm enough for sundresses and long blades of grass for us to run around in.

    I'd visited your sponsers before, and there's just a lot I like from all of them.
    I'd have to say the Tea Time Dress by Misha Lulu is at the top of my fav list though!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  • Sarah says:

    This spring I am looking forward to retiring my boots and shovel! I'm so excited for the snow and cold to disappearrr.

  • This spring I'm looking forward for the coming of my second baby, supposed to be on the end of march.
    I really like all the stuff from Hijkids, but I really appreciate
    “Boy Bear in Blue”.

  • This Spring I am most looking forward to the birth of our third baby… our first little girl. I love Warm Sugar's soft, colorful dolls; perfect for Baby Sister!

  • The thing I am looking most forward to in spring is a color change!! We've had snow on the ground since early OCTOBER and now it's almost March. I am SO ready for the 'white' to be replaced by GREENS, pinks, yellows, oranges, and red of early spring!!

  • Lily Nichols says:

    I love the Hijkids Mary Mack Dress. Wish I could afford it for Beatrice.

    I'm looking forward to telling my family I'm pregnant in Spring! Can I keep a secret that long?

  • I am most looking forward to introducing my daughter Cassie to the textures and sensory experiences of Spring in the form of planting flowers. We will splash into rain puddles barefoot and inhale the damp air, let the grass tickle our toes, squeeze soil through our hands, smell flowers and rub their petals between our fingers. We will also sample edible flowers in a nice healthy salad for the first time. My daughter is only 13 months old so everything is very new to her. Maybe we will get to capture all of this with a new polaroid camera hahahha! aggghhh the joys of spring.

    I aboslutely love the Vintage Lady bracelet from the Orangepoppy webpage.

  • Mara says:

    I love the daffodils that bloom all around town in the Spring here. Their bright yellow cheeriness brighten my day.

    2. I especially love the Brown and White Flower trim fabric at Misha Lulu

  • Tent Revival says:

    This particular spring I am looking forward to seeing my six month old first baby continue to grow and change. He is different every day. It is like when you have a baby you consider them a gift, but it's really hundreds or even thousands of gifts as they become a new person over and over.

    I would have to say that my favorite item is the baby spoon from lisa leonard. DesignMom Gabriel Blair posted about one like this a few days ago. I love all of the cute little girl dresses at Misha Lulu and HijKids, but I couldn't pick out just one.

    Thank you for always posting great inspirational blogs about being a wife and mother.

  • HazeWea says:

    On man, spring can't get here fast enough! I'm looking forward to the warmer (but not excruciatingly hot) weather! Warmer weather equates flip flops and cute spring dresses! And I adore the Miranda doll from Warm Sugar…especially with an added fuzzy bear hat. =)

  • thetinybean says:

    I can't wait for the spring so that I can spend more time outside with my children!!! We have been very cooped up this winter, and it will be so nice to smell the fresh air and run around in the yard.

    I am *loving* the butterscotch bangle over at Orangepoppy…I may have to treat myself to bring a little spring into my wardrobe…

  • Jessica says:

    Living in California, makes spring time extra exciting. Every year I look forward to the beginning of wildflower season on March 1st! It's so beautiful and inspiring to see all these little flowers sprout from the ground especially after a wonderful winter, like the one we had this year, with actual rain. πŸ™‚

    I am inspired by the Modern Orange Print fabric from mishalulu.com to create something equally fresh and fun for this wonderful time of year.

  • Rae says:

    For spring I looking forward to my anniversary on the 3rd of April. Also for it to get beautiful outside so our little family can go to the park again. my son loves playing at the park. He's been so sick lately and could really go out the few days it was nice outside. πŸ™

    Thanks for this great oppertunity at this giveaway. Polaroids are awesome!

  • Hello Ruby!

    Your blog and your family are so inspiring. Your outlook on life and love and family are so pure and honest.

    To me, spring means working on getting over my self-consciousness about my legs, and learning to love them as the wonderful gift they are.

    Spring means the warm sun on my face while exploring the little downtown stores my city has to offer.

    I adore the sweet little dresses by Misha Lulu, especially the β€œTea Time” dress. Now all I need is a pretty little girl in my life to spoil!

  • yeeshan(: says:

    I'm looking forward to attending a new school in spring and hopefully making new friends. I will be studying in a totally different and new environment.

    I like so many of Lisa Leonard's designs, it's hard to choose one. If I had to choose only one, it would be the friendship necklace. It was one of the first few necklaces which caught my eye as I was scrolling down the page. I like how the flowers pop out and they just look so cute together. πŸ˜€

  • megbrothers says:

    i am excited about ballet flats and bare toes this spring.

    i am absolutely in love with Simone from Warm Sugar. i dream of having a daughter some day and buying a Simone doll for her! <3

  • hannai613 says:

  • Gina says:

    Every winter, I struggle with seasonal depression. I look forward to spring like my life depends on it. It is my hope. I am looking forward to facing the sun closing my eyes, taking a big deep breath of spring air, and celebrating that I've made it through another winter. All things new.

    I fell in love with Lisa Leonard's jewelry. Every piece made me think of someone close to me. I especially liked the “Be Still” necklace. It's a reminder to me that I am taken care of like the little birds that play in my yard. They don't worry or fear. It's a good reminder to me to live in the moment.

  • Kelsey says:

    hmm, so many things to look forward to with spring! Probably most excited about seeing the sun, the sun melting away the dirty snow, and the green-ness returning.

    I think Posy on Warm Sugar is super cute.

    Polaroids are so cool..I've always wanted to own one.
    Thanks Ruby!

    Kelsey :o)

  • joolee says:

    I LOVE the first day that's warm enough to wear just a t-shirt, the sun is out, the flowers and trees are blooming…ahhh, I can't wait! And baby #3 is due in July, so spring must come first before he/she arrives, which doesn't seem soon enough. πŸ™‚

    Orangepoppy's ruffle necklaces are DI.VINE. I must have one.

  • lisa says:

    Springs almost here! I am most exited for the warmer weather and the beginning of blooming flowers! My fav item is Pink Petal Ruffle Necklace from orange poppy

  • Stephanie says:

    looking forward to making leprechaun traps.
    most fav doll from warmsugar is simone.
    [email protected]

  • Lady Jessus says:

    it's actually autumn for us Aussies as it's summer now (: – but i look forward to Spring because I love it when flowers are blooming, trees are full of green leaves, when the bees and butterflies and insects make the garden lively and beautiful. Spring also means the weather's warmer and I love bathing under the sun without getting burnt whilst sipping tea and reading a book on the grass (:

    i love all Lisa Leonard's items and would love to custom make one !!! but my fav would be the leather cuff under the 'bracelets' category – I would put 'love' in instead of courage.

  • Jennikunz says:

    Instant film reminds me of my grandad! He was so cute, shaking it to make it develop faster!

    Favorite thing ever–Mint green ruffle necklace from Orange poppy! And favorite thing about spring is getting my TAX return! So maybe I can purchase said mint green ruffle necklace! (rolling down the windows in the car is a very close second to extra cash)

  • LUCY says:

    I love instant film! I bought a poloroid camera when I lived in Japan about 10 years ago. But I can't find it for the life of me!

    1. What I'm looking forward to most about spring is taking my little one, 18 months old Vada, to the zoo and to Sea World. It'll finally be warm enough and she's going to love seeing all the animals!

    2. My absolute favorite thing at Hijkids is their Sugar Cookie Dress in Blue! It is beyond the cutest thing and I wish Vada had one! I just might have to get it so she can wear it to the zoo πŸ™‚

    Hope you and your little ones have a wonderful weekend!

  • AndiMae says:

    This spring I am really excited about trying out gardening for the very first time! We are going to make a little square foot garden and I think my kids are going to have so much fun helping with it!

    Rebekah, the designer of Orangepoppy, is actually a dear friend of mine, so hands-down she is my favorite! I love all her necklaces, but right now I am especially partial to her new bangles- so beautiful!

    But I would also love to give my sweet little girl one of Warm Sugars lovely dolls…

  • Hi Ruby,

    This spring, there are a lot of things to be excited for.. 1) Easter celebration! 2) finishing my last quarter as an undergraduate study 3) Spring weather, which is perfect for gardening and strolling outside.

    Your sponsor Lisa Leonard is one of my favorites because her pieces are very simple yet stunning.

  • Charity says:

    So many things to look forward to in Spring: Getting out in the cool air with the warm sunshine on your back while gardening. My Kindergarten Class' Graduation in May. And many birthday celebrations.
    I LOVE the Lily Pad Statement Necklace over at orangepoppy. I'm a big fan of GREEN, one more thing to look forward to in Spring!

  • heidi says:

  • cindy says:

    Love this chance. I have had no luck trying to obtain one for my collection. This would be fantastic!

    As for a favorite item… it is everything from LISA LEONARD. She makes the most beautiful jewelry. I would even say breath taking. But to be fair I would chose the thin cuff. I would put the names of myself, parents and 2 brothers.


    Stay dry this weekend!!

  • della-nonna says:

    Hi there!

    I cannot wait for spring! I'm in Australia…so it's still a while away for us over here…but definitely still on the horizon!
    Autumn has just started, which gives me a taste for the 'in between' seasons I love so much!
    I'm most looking forward to the SMELL of spring! I live in an area surrounded by trees, and next to an elderley lady who has the most beautiful garden! And I can't wait to see the blooms, and smell the air in spring!

    My favourite item from your sponsors would have to be the 'emerald leaf ruffle necklace' from orangepoppy!! What could be more spring, than wearing a part of it around your neck! And emerald! What a stunning colour to herald in the new season! πŸ™‚

    with springtime love,

  • betty says:

    Hello! I am most looking forward to having sunshine on my face all the time in spring! Can't wait.
    My favourite item from your sponsors is the 'butterscotch bangle' from orangepoppy. The colours are so well-suited to spring!

  • Stephanie says:

    I am definitely just looking forward to the warmth of spring… wearing a skirt and flip flops, running outdoors without a coat and gloves, baking in the sun just a bit… mmmm, wonderful!

    And I especially like the earrings on the Orangepoppy site!

    Thanks for sharing your life with the world!

  • iamrobyn says:

    Well, right now I am thoroughly enjoying the Olympics being here in Vancouver so I'm really enjoying the moment… but I also look forward to planting my garden this spring — and of course I ALWAYS welcome summer with open arms. πŸ™‚

    My favorite item would have to be the dewdrops necklace from Lisa Leonard designs. It's beautiful!

  • I cannot wait for my aunt to visit this spring! She is bringing my new cousin, Eva, who I am *so* excited to meet. Eva is turning one and my daughter is turning two, and we will be celebrating their birthdays together. πŸ™‚

    My favorite item of your sponsors is:

    Simone is so adorable in her little leg warmers! Warm Sugar has wonderful descriptions, and I love that she repurposes materials in her dolls.

    It was so fun checking out your sponsors! Thank you for making this giveaway so fun!! πŸ™‚

  • Jenni says:

    WOW there are a lot of comments! Well, I may as well add to them!

    1. I am from Saskatchewan, Canada which means frigid temperatures for 6 months of the year. So I am very much looking forward to being able to slip into a pair of flip flops and not have the hassle of bundling up each and every day! And also the warm sunshine on my face- I love sun!
    2. I very much liked the sweet & simple birdie necklace from Lisa Leonard. I completely agree with the name- so sweet and simple, but beautiful!

    Well, I love polaroid, but there seem to be quite a few others who do too! Good luck to the winner!

  • Rileigh says:

    I am looking forward to the cherry blossoms! I am a California girl living back east for a year and I am anxiously awaiting a sea of pink petals to frolic around in. My favorite sponsor was the Warm Sugar Girl Love Fairy. So cute, my girls would love it.
    Thank you!

  • elisebuck says:

    The thing I look forward to the most in spring is when we turn the clocks ahead and it is light out later in the night! I love talking a walk after dinner when it is still light out.

    From Hijkids, I love the Sugar Cookie Dress in Yellow.

  • Brooke says:

    Taking pictures of my one-year-old's bare feet in the grass!

  • sharyl says:

    I'm looking forward to spring for the warmer weather so me and the hubbz can go to Disneyland every weekend!

  • I am most looking forward to moving out of our tiny apartment and into our new warehouse live/work space. Finally the kids will have a space all their own, my husband will have a great location for his print shop, and I get my own studio for craftiness!

    My favorite out of the sponsors is Warm Sugar's lil' custom pirate dolly. I ordered one for my newest pirate matey, Zola Olive, who turns five weeks old tomorrow!

  • faith says:

    Spring… I am most looking forward to playing in the garden.

    And I love Lisa's spoons.

  • Michele says:

    Oh spring. good grief. i love my sister's field in tennessee by her house. and the flowers start to bloom and we run around outside barefoot and play on the porches we played on as kids because she lives in the house my great grandaddy built. and this spring, for my birthday, my sister will have my very first niece. and of all the beautiful years i have waited for spring, that makes this one even more special.

    and misha lulu has been one of my very favorite brands for a few years now. and i am thrilled to follow their lovely blog. and i love every piece they make and can't wait to buy spring pieces. and the love and pure warm that comes from their beautiful things reflects the good hearts that make them.

    Yay Spring!

  • Susan Ly says:

    Hi Ruby,
    For spring, I look forward to celebrating my little girl, Meela's, 5th birthday. Five means she can do 5x more than she was able to last year…dance, sing, cook, plant, etc… How quickly children grow up!
    My fav from your sponsors is Misha Lulu's pink overall dress from Misha Land 2. It's Meela's fav color and she would look adorable in it!

    Lord willing, i'll also be looking forward to my first wedding season as a cake decorator!

    2. i can't decide between posy by warm sugar or the bluebell ruffle necklace from orange poppy.

  • jessica kim says:

    The most exciting thing about the spring is finally being able to wear sandals! I'm tired of wearing boots and sneakers that cramp my poor toes ):

    I love the Penelope Ruffle necklace from Orangepoppy (:

  • kim says:

    I love seeing the first daffidol in the garden and seeing newborn lambs running around the paddocks.

    I love the custom made dolls from Warm Sugar – I want one for me!

  • Kristi says:

    Oh, you are such a sweet girl for sharing the Polaroid love. Please. May I. Tomorrow in Australia will be the first day of Fall/Autumn. I look forward to snapping some new Polaroid shots of the falling leaves thanks to you. Fingers crossed. I love Hijkids, they carry such cute stuff for little ones. xo.

  • sarahjung says:

    While autumn is my favorite season, my mom is head over heels in love with spring. It's when she dutifully brings her camera with her on her morning walks to take literally hundreds of extremely-close up pictures of flowers, even the rather plain ones that grow from weeds.

    I'm from California (you are too, right?) and she's already takin' on the spring spirit full force. For example, I told her today, “When I graduate college and start working I'm going to spoil you rotten!” to which she replied, “I don't want to be rotten–I want you to help me blooooom!” She's as cute in real life as she sounds, and I guess you could say she's my favorite thing about spring.

    (Lisa Leonard's thin sterling cuff is so simple and beautiful. I love it!)

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity πŸ™‚

  • What I look forward to in spring is anything that my beau and I do together, because whatever is with him is just ten times better!

    And I love everything at Orangepoppy!! My favorites would be the Green Tea necklace, Grey Rose bangle, or Mint Green ruffle necklace. So pretty!

    And I've been really wishing for a polaroid camera, and have been hoping to get one this summer (if I don't win ;).


  • Kriscanuck says:

    hello! i am so looking forward to spring and being able to walk around london without a big heavy coat- and maybe see a bit of sunshine! i love lisa leanard's big ring shaped pendant and i would have the word true put on it- as i'm focusing on truing myself to jesus' example!

  • such an awesome giveaway!! I LOVE cameras, but I don't have a Polaroid, so this is right up my alley.
    – I'm so excited about the buds on the trees and the spring flowers to come up.

    – I absolutely LOVE Lisa Leonard's “Fly Free” necklace. She has sooooo many beautiful designs, but this is my favorite item!

  • Moira says:

    hello! polaroids are one of my favorite memory catchers there's just something about a tangible photograph that this digital age can't erase. and instant gratification to boot! this is a great giveaway.
    anyways, i found this little gem on lisaleonard's site: http://www.lisaleonardonline.com/men-s-jewelry/leather-cuff.html
    and i think i may order it for my boyfriend's birthday! it's hard enough for him to wear (although I just might borrow it)and i love that you can customize it. now deciding what 14-letter word he'd like best…
    happy sunday!

  • I just had a baby in January so I am looking forward to taking my baby girl to the park eveyrday in the Spring!

  • Natalie Call says:

    Pirate dolls by Warm Sugar = Love Love Love!

    I am looking forward to all the smells of spring. With the world covered up in snow, the outside doesn't really have a scent. The snow traps it in! I am looking toward to the snow melting so I can smell the grass and the mud it has left behind.

  • – Considering I live in Canada and it's been -40 this winter (yikes!) I am so giddy that soon I will be able to wear all of my favorite dresses because nothing makes me happier then being able to wear a cutesy dress for my man (and myself!).

    – The itty bitty hearts necklace by Lisa Leonard. Simplicity is sweet.

  • This spring, I'm looking forward to getting myself a cute maternity bathing suit so I can splash around and run through the sprinkler with my cute 2 year old son. I love Orange Poppy's butterscotch bangle. I could wear it everyday πŸ™‚

    [email protected]

    I love all of the jewelry from Lisa Leonard, especially the custom jewelry to add a personalized touch. πŸ™‚

  • Clear Pink says:

    We have had a bad winter here, lots and lots of snow. Spring can not come soon enough.

    I am looking fowrard to getting the kids outside to play (four of them), getting out in the garden, our csa starting, and being able to start running outside again.

    My favourite sponsor of yours is most definitely Orangepoppy.

(but if i was being selfish and wanted to buy something for me i would definitely get the vintage lady bracelet from orangepoppy).

    thank you for such a lovely giveaway!

  • North Wyoming has been taunting us with spring weather. I love the fresh smell of dirt when getting the garden ready for planting in the springtime. I'm looking forward to learning what grows well in WY.

    I love all of your sponsors, but I suppose the one that made my crafty side smile was the “Sleepy Smiley Lion Floral Pillow” from HijKids. It made me want to be a kid again so I could cuddle with it!

  • Andrea says:

    I am most looking forward to taking my little boy to the park this spring and watching him learn to walk!

    I love the Boy Bear in Blue from Hijikids. Every little boy needs a teddy bear right?

  • The spring is my favorite time to be living in Seattle. It doesn't look like spring since it's green all the time there and it is probably even rainier than normal, but I love it. We like to tie-dye shirts and long board through puddles. I take my dogs for walks with matching bright yellow rain coats. Along with the flowers, all the antique shops and flea markets are in bloom and there's no better place to shop for vintage clothing or furniture than in Seattle on the piers.

    I LOVE the prints used by Downtown Girl, and I totally already have a camera strap from SheyB (aren't they SO ingenius?!) and I love Orangepoppy's designs but my favorite HAS to be those adorable pirate baby-dolls from Warm Sugar

  • Jessica L says:

  • Heather says:

    I am looking forward to Easter in the Park that my church hosts each year and being able to share God's love with people!

    What I am looking forward to in Spring is finishing some undone house projects: moving children's bedrooms; painting said rooms; and slipcovering a couple of my sofas.

  • well, there are many things i'm looking forward to in spring but i would say that what i am most looking forward to is the smell of wet soil (more specifically mud) matched with a pair of worn rain boots to carry me from class to class.

  • I'm looking forward to being able to wear a cute dress without thick tights underneath! Can't wait to break out the spring-weather heels either!

    My favourite item is the Fly Free neck, it's so cute! Love the little pearl that's attached.

    I am looking forward to wearing my dresses! I also want to start using my camera more and start taking pics of my day to day life and the cute flowers I see all the time on my way to class.

    And I lolololove the necklaces from Lisa Leonard! specially the friendship one. But I also love the cute little coin purses from Downtown Girl Designs. I like the one with cute vintage flowers.

    BTW! I JUST discovered your blog and I love it! So cute and inspiring! Plus your new daughter has my name! Your girls are completely adorable!

    I'm looking forward to finishing my master's thesis this spring. Yay!

    As for my favorite item from your sponsors, hmm. I'm particularly hankering after a camera strap slipcover from SheyB… one with a lens cap holder… I particularly like this strap: http://www.sheyb.com/product/disco-dot-w-turquoise-minky

    And I've always wanted to take photos with a polaroid! So this could be my first chance!
