It's Snowing

The first day of Spring was yesterday and we greeted it with a snow storm. This morning we have about a half foot of snow and it's still coming down. I love it!! It's so quiet and beautiful - that is until the snow plow comes, but I can enjoy it for now. I thought spring was so far away, but I went outside the other day, and look what I saw....



Yes, the first few Crocus of Spring peeking up from the mud and the muck and pine needles from winter. There are still a lot more to come, but right now, they're all covered under several inches of snow. Thing about snow this time of year - it leaves as quickly as it comes. As soon as it stops snowing and the sun comes out it's gone. So, I enjoy it while I can.

*******Edit - We now have about a 1-1/2' of snow and still more coming******

I have something for you today - I think you're going to like it. I was blog hopping this morning to some of the blogs I subscribe to and found a little treat. With things the way they are today in our world and so many individuals and families facing really hard times, and even if we're not in that place, we all still have our moments don't we? Sometimes we can get so involved in our own disappointments, illness, day to day stresses - we forget that we have things in our lives that we can be thankful for, and when we are reminded of these things they can bring us much joy even in the midst of troubles. Holly and Heather(Ez)over at Kindred are giving away a download of beautiful thankful lists that you can print out and write down things throughout the day that you find you are thankful for - and make a very good point - if we're making a conscious effort to find those things and write them down, we will be reminded of just how much we do have to be thankful for. Please check out their blog I think you will find it quite delightful.

I do have a card for you today - just another simple vintage inspired Easter card I have put together for the shop in town and it's also in my Etsy, ShopHandmade, and Artfire shops. If you haven't checked out these online shops before, there are a lot of talented people and wonderful products you might like to see.



Have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday and try to spend at least sometime today doing what YOU love.

wow! the images you have been using lately are just gorgeous! I mean truly lovely! and your cards are real knock-outs! love the glitter touches on all of them!!!
living where I do, it isn't all that unusual for us to get snow into May, so I know how you are feeling - but I'm a weirdie and happen to like it! :) love the flowers of spring, too, though.

have a great Sunday!
