Thanks a Lot, Groundhog

According to Punxsutawney Phil, it looks like we’re in for six more weeks of winter. Well, for those of us who only like a little bit of winter, (you know, the “I like the different seasons” thing), this is not what we wanted to hear from our friend, the weather-predicting rodent! Though my garden looks pretty nice decorated with all that white flaky stuff, I believe I’m ready to enjoy the first signs of spring.

Of course, painting a springtime scene at Mellon Green (which I will be sharing with you soon) is an acceptable substitute for now. At least it helps a little with my longing to see blossoms and shades of green bursting forth from the earth. I expect to complete the painting this weekend; then if all goes well, the original will be framed soon, and I can unveil it alongside the new prints at the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show.

This week I’ve also been working hard on getting my stock together for the show. Even though we’ll still have winter weather until then, March 4th will be here before we know it!

My restock order of puzzles just arrived late yesterday, and I’m excited to announce that there will be a new puzzle available at the Home and Garden Show! The new puzzle will be an “only at show” item, as I have a limited number of them for the time being. Of course, “Holiday Memories under Kaufmann’s Clock,” “My Hometown,” and “Santa’s Woodland Christmas” are available now. More details about my newest puzzle will be coming soon!

I’m sorry for any inconvenience to those who weren’t able to get a puzzle in time for the holidays – they turned out to be more popular than I expected (which is a good thing)! As I work more and more with this company, I want to eventually put the puzzles up on my website. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience.

The puzzles (1000 pieces) are $35.00 plus tax and shipping. They measure 28 inches by 20 inches, and the colors are absolutely beautiful. The finished puzzles would make great wall art!

Again, quantities are limited. I’m bringing whatever stock I have left to the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show on March 4th through 13th. I will have a double booth (#3146) at the end of Row 3100, closest to the escalators.

Regardless of what the groundhog says, Spring is just around the corner. (Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself!). In the meantime, stay safe, stay warm, and have a great week!
