What's coming up?

Well, for one, the first flowering bulbs are blooming in my yard - snowdrops - yippee!
I know, I can't believe it either. Soon the aconite will be blooming and then the crocus. I was all in a tizzy when I went out to put warm water in the bird bath and saw these little ladies peeping their heads up through the leaves.
Thank you snowdrops, you made my day:)



Next thing that's coming "up" is the EHAG Emporium. You may have noticed my little button advertising this event on my sidebar. This project has become my little baby this month and I am so excited that I suggested it to the group. We have over 20 amazing pieces of original, one of a kind, Halloween art for sale starting January 31st and 9PM EST. If you love all things spooky, witchy, ghostly and whimsical, please drop by. I've added many sneak peeks to the blog as well as a list of artists participating this month. All artwork will be sold on a first come, first served basis. I have a sculpture for sale and it isn't a horse for once!



Lastly, we have the PFATT Penny Tree Auction coming up. I've donated an original Valentine's Day ornament for the tree to be auctioned off in February with the proceeds going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please check out the PFATT Blog to see pictures and learn more about this special project.

Pretty! I keep reminding myself this horrible weather won't be forever. Just a few more weeks... few more weeks...

Now that I know what snowdrops are I'll be watching for them.

You're using your art and talents for good endeavors. My old czech Grandma alwys loved snowdrops which would appear through the snow in her Michigan flower beds. It's down to zero here tonight, no buds here anywhere!!!

Oh, how wonderful to see the flowers... We're still buried in snow here!

Oh Jen, how lucky you are to see spring so early. Our last snow gave us another 10", and we have drifts that are 3 feet deep. Spring is nowhere to be seen yet, but the crows that had migrated are starting to return for nesting, so there is hope...
