Whirls and Swirls

My apologies to the HollyJollyShop for not posting this sooner. We just moved and I'm still unpacking. It seems I shall never be finished...

"Whirls and Swirls" is a fun treasury with, you guessed it, whirls and swirls in shades of aqua and brown. My Cranberry Whirl Pendant was included. Please visit HollyJollyShop for some beautiful jewelry. Her Pink Ninja Star Earrings would be perfect for Spring!

It might as well be Spring

Yesterday I noticed that I was alternate in a treasury titled, "It might as well be Spring. Reflections in the garden...in Cobalt & Lime." This morning I woke up to find that my Cobalt Streak Lantern was included in it! What a pleasant surprise! Since we are expecting another 6-10 inches of snow, a glimpse of Spring is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much to Horticopia for including me in her fabulous collection! Please check Horticopia's online nursery for exotic, organically grown selections like this Spiral Aloe.

Dream a Little Dream

This is a very cool collection of aqua items. "Dream a little dream" was curated by monkeyminddesign09. It includes my Octopus Lantern. The Octopus has the dubious distinction of having the most hearts of any of my items that hasn't been featured on Etsy anywhere. In other words, I have items that have more views or hearts, but they had been on the Front Page or in the Storque. This is this guy's first time to even be in a treasury! I'm so glad that monkeymind09 appreciates him. Please check out monkeymind09's shop for fabulous greeting cards, calendars, note cards, and inviations. Her Aqua Dream Card is included in the treasury. Enjoy!

Snowed in Again!

It snowed all day yesterday and all night. I think we have about 18" of total accumulation. Today I started digging out. I had to shovel a path to the studio because the snow was up to my knees! I also shovelled a small area for my dog to do her business. Her legs are too short for this! The sun peeked through the clouds this afternoon, so my stir-crazy son and I had tons of fun lobbing giant chunks of snow at each other! I saw more clouds on the horizon, so it looks like this is not the end of the snow...

What Can I get You?

This Treasury, "What can I get you?" is a keeper. The curator, elineof, captured the lovely pale blue quality of the light on a snowy day. She really has an eye for photos, products, and composition. Well done! Of course, she knows a thing or two about snow. She's from Oslo. She hand knits beautiful accessories, including this wonderful garnet-colored Valentine Cowl. My Peacock Light Catcher was included in this treasury. Enjoy!
