Summertime in Winter

In the northeast this time of year, it’s easy to fantasize about bright colors and blessed memories of summertime. Let’s indulge! The first white phlox of the garden are in bloom. And…paper whites are on the ascendancy. I’m not quite there.

This was a busy week for Paola Prints. We’re getting a print order ready for two new designs and have almost finished a third. The Blues and Sheer Escapism are being uploaded tomorrow for print.
