Daisies for Stringtime
In Portland we’ve hit the season we regretfully call “False Spring.” Even though we are in the midst of March, rain clouds still abound and blue skies are but a mere fond memory. During this time we like to find any way we can to create a little sunshine. This paper daisy chain certainly does the trick. It’s such a lovely way to string up a little happiness in your home. Follow along with our steps below to decorate with daisies.
