This and That. And This.

And some more of that.
It's another everything but the kitchen sink post from yours truly!

First up, what's that white stuff in my St. Francis birdbath?

It's SNOW!!!

Yep, 60 some-odd miles NW of San Antonio, and we're under a
WINTER STORM WARNING with snowfall accumulations of up to 2-4 inches expected!
I mean, we get snow down here, it just rarely sticks. This stuff is stickin'!



  That's almost an inch right there on the deck railing! That a HUGE whoop for this part of Texas!

Mr. Twig and the Huskies.
Awww look, Belle (on the right) has her puppy tongue out, so as to catch snowflakes!

Str-e-e-e-e-e-t-c-h, Havok! It's only snow, it's not gonna hurt you!

Next up, one of my items was prominently featured on 
Etsy's blog, The Storque this past weekend!

If you click right HERE and scroll about a third of the way down, you'll find my Fall Splendor Oil Painting very prominently featured on the left-hand side, grouped with other "like" themed objects.


It was featured on the front page of Etsy's blog Sunday, and also went out in the e-mails they send out to all the gajillion members daily.
  I didn't even know about it, as I hadn't received the e-mail featuring me yet...a most kind blog friend congratulated me on the honor and tipped me off, and it was later confirmed by yet another Etsy selling friend that that was a pretty big deal and I should be proud. It's a tremendous amount of exposure, so yeah, I am a little psyched!  I'm even happier that the oil on canvas sold as a direct result of this unexpected publicity, so bonus!

Thirdly, I know that I posted the winner on my sidebar, but for those who didn't look there,
the winner of my Flea Market Style Magazine Giveaway
is Beth of Gypsy Fish Journal.
Congrats, Beth!

There's a good chance I'll have yet ANOTHER copy to include in my impending giveaway, so be sure to check back!

In other news, there's a new blogger I'd like to tell y'all about....









.... La!

Beautiful images from the beautiful Sandi at
A Cottage Muse-Dreaming in Vintage Whites.

She's only been blogging for a couple of weeks now, so please head on over and make her feel welcome, just like y'all always do.
Oh, and some of these ethereal images are from her dreamy ETSY SHOP, so be sure to pop on over to discover something you just can't live without! to make snow angels!
Have a beautiful Tuesday!

We've been getting a lot of the white stuff down in southcentral Tennessee, too! We rarely see snow that sticks, but this year we've had plenty! We always get snow where I work, but an hour drive west where I live sees it very seldom. Strange, strange weather this year! Enjoy it while it lasts!

Debra@CommonGround said...

ooohhh, you have strong peepers, I think the clock is 356. Which I guess is still pretty good. Did you have a fun day in the snow? Loved seeing your photos of it! Stay warm.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I'm already visiting Sandi. She does have a beautiful blog! Congrats on your exposure (and I mean that in the best sense of the word). So fun! Glad to hear the painting sold. My girlfriend, Renee, is in San Antonio and she said it only snowed about 10 minutes, just long enough for her to get pictures. Hope you are having a fabulous day. Many blessings! Tammy
