It may only be the beginning of February, but look! It's spring in my neck of the woods! This is a leaf emerging from one of the Red Flowering Currant bushes that populate our yard. This plant is a favorite of the hummingbirds, and so it is also one of mine. Daylight is coming back; we get an extra 5 minutes every day until the Summer Solstice and it feels so so good.
I'm also celebrating my third year on Etsy; it's my Etsy-versary on February 5th! To share the love, I'm offering 15% off everything in both my Artfire and Etsy shops for the entire month of February! On Etsy, your discount will be refunded after the transaction is complete. On Artfire, type in the coupon code, "Etsyversary" and your discount will be automatically applied. And here's the fine print: this discount cannot be combined with other discounts (sorry).
I just sent out my Spring Newsletter, did you get it? Do you want to get it? If so, sign up right here.
Happy Daylight, Northerners!

I'm going to have to do a little hunt for some signs of spring around here! I doubt i'll find any, but you've given me hope! It's worth a look;)

Beautiful photo!

Even though it is cold as blazes where I am, hopeful signs of spring caught my eye the other day as I was walking up to a local fabric shop, situated on a working farm... I noticed crocuses pushing up through the soil while geese flew overhead!

Hooray for crocuses! They are the heros of spring!
