Alamo Square Shoe Garden in San Francisco
I know, I know. It’s still winter. Don’t remind me. While I love certain things about winter, like holiday crafting and cozying up with a warm cup of tea, around this time of year I start to get a little sick of being cold all the time. When the chilly, dark days of winter get you down, some springtime crafty eye candy is the perfect pick me up!
