Itchy Eyes, Runny Noses and Cloudy Skies – Oh, The Joys of Spring!

Posted by Kyle Design on May 19, 2010

Handy pollen travel cases for tissues, inhalers and eye drops - sure to be appreciated by those who suffer from hay fever!

Got hay fever? Keep your tissues and allergy meds at arm's length with this functional and fashionable Floating Pollen travel case.

A freshly-brewed, hot drink on a cold, rainy day is truly perfection at its best.

Delicious cocoa and coffee nightlights are sure to warm your heart and your home on any cloudy day.

It’s that time again. Fresh flowers blooming throughout, birds and the bees enthusiastically twittering and buzzing about in manner of Bambi and the air generally filled with an ‘out with the old, in with the new’ feeling wherever you go. A seasonal phenomenon, so aptly defined by the late-great Mark Twain: “It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” All too true, but wait– I think I might instead know exactly what I want, and the “want” I’ve got is a cure for the awful hay fever symptoms I’ve been having.

In light of the recent soundtrack of sneezes and coughs that have afflicted the entire Kyle Design staff, it can be concluded that this is the one of the worst California allergy seasons we’ve had in a very, very long time. In fact, it came as no surprise that the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has rated San Francisco/the Bay Area as the 63rd most challenging place to live with spring allergies. Wheeze, hack, snort and “Do you have any lubricating eye drops?” have become typical, albeit disturbing, sounds of the studio over the last few weeks, and our fingers are fiercely crossed that we can all survive the remaining month or so until summer’s arrival.

To our asthmatic and allergy-prone friends, we most certainly feel your [sinus] pain.

On the upside, we’ve all been finding immediate joy in this gloomy, somewhat out-of-place rainy weather of the past week. Not only do we hail the rain (no pun intended) as a magical marvel in clearing up our sinuses, but April and May showers have made us happier, busier bees around the studio, and we’re hoping to extend this joy to each of our customers with our latest designs. For now, my goal is to enjoy watching the wet rain fall from a tauntingly dry indoors view armed with a plush blanket and a fresh cup of tea. Ah, I’m filled with warm, fuzzy feelings just at the thought…
