These days, it seems like I'm on a mint mission.  Light bluish greens fit for a fairy tale or a 1950s kitchen are packing a pastel punch everywhere, and I am officially enchanted.  My fascination has spilled over into Trove territory, inspiring me to make jewelry that meshes with these frosty fashions.  I've found that nearly-mint cyan felt is my friend, and I've been using it for leaves instead of my usual lime.  Speaking of which, I can't help but think that mint is to spring what lime is to summer.  Mint is tea and petit fours at the club; lime is slushies and fries at the beach.  You know.  Different but equally delicious.    

Stay tuned to see what else comes down the peppermint pike.
