A potpourri post...


 In other words, a bit of this, that, and the other...


After receiving an email from a local friend last night that she had spotted her first hummingbird, I made sure to get my feeders out this morning. Lord knows there's not a single blooming flower in our yard for them to visit!

The past few days have been spectacular. It's been wonderful being able to dry clothes outside without worrying about them freezing.


Our handsome boy continues to make remarkable progress after his emergency surgery (spleen and right eye removal). He is, however, in desperate need of grooming (both bathing and a haircut).

He has an appointment with his vet tomorrow to get the "all clear" for a visit to the groomers. Stitches and staples were removed weeks ago and incisions are healing beautifully, so I think he'll get the green light.

Back in November I shared this silly compilation of two owl prints I was working on...

Yesterday the UPS truck pulled up with the actual prints from my publisher.

As always, they did an amazing job with the printing.

And speaking of art prints...

This "God Bless Our Home" print, as well as three others in my Etsy art shop have been tagged as Boston Fundraiser prints. I'm donating the purchase price of these prints to The One Fund in Boston, whose monies will be donated to those who were so horrifically affected by the bombing at the Marathon. If you're interested, here's a link to the four fundraiser prints:
 
 
Have a beautiful weekend, everyone.

Great prints, Donna. I didn't realize you were an artist. Beautiful job and I think it's wonderful you are contributing to the Boston bombing victims.

So good the doggie is better, too. Susan

Lovely owl prints and of course I am loving the idea of the One Fund donation.

Still reeling from last week as I am sure you are. Stay safe.

Maybe this is the year we can finally get together? I am not putting off anything anymore.

I am totally crushing on those owl prints. My mind is reeling with where I could put them! My wall space is so limited right now. Hmmm. Anyway, glad to see your sweet doggie is doing well after his surgery. Have a great weekend!
