Spring Crocuses

The weather, unfortunately is not very spring like... The rain, cold and winds are getting on my last nerves this year, at least we don't have to deal with leftover snow showers Northern states have seen this week;O)) While walking our dog, I was able to snap this photo of beautiful crocuses blooming in my neighbour's front yard. I hope to pull super secret mission this upcoming fall, and plant some crocus bulbs in our front lawn, which I was forbidden to do by my husband. Well, he will have to deal with it:O))

Jewels and moss treasury

I don't gamble, I don't bet on horses and I'm not into extreme sports, but landing an Etsy treasury list can be certainly filed in same adrenaline pumping category:O) There is something very nerve-wrecking and exciting in watching the number of treasury list go under that magic 333 number and number of visitors climb rapidly. Then your eyes are glued to the bottom of the screen waiting for the box to open and you are holding your breath afraid to even blink, because if you might be gone. Your hand is squeezing the mouse ready to paste prepared earlier title of your treasury and click the finish button. Then you watch it load opening empty grid ready to be filled with beautiful, creative items. Believe me, beating hundreds of people to a treasury list feels great!

Here is the newest treasury I landed just yesterday. Its called ...jewels and moss... and features beautiful jewelry created by the {NewNew} members.
