There are a lot of ways to illustrate ice, but none so close to my heart (uh ... mouth) than Chocolate Icing.  I have never passed up a chocolate cake without sampling the icing.   All for this week ... see you all soon :P

Snow Creatures

This is the imprint of a Cooper's Hawk
that pounced on her pray in the snow.

Trees always make magnificent snow creatures ...

This large female eagle had just been released after being rehabbed at our facility.  We took her to the place where she had been found and it took her a few minutes to acclimate herself, but then she was off, never to be seen again. 

The moon always brings the sparkle out in the night snow and creates creatures by casting shadows ...

My favorite snow creature ...

I will apologize in advance ... I have things going on in my life that are demanding a great deal of my time, so, though I have time to post this morning, I won't have time to comment until later in the week. Soooo ... if you would all get the chance to check back at your wonderful posts and comments, I will hope to be there for you :)

Christmas Lore and Stories

Little Drummer Boy

classic version

Old Fashioned Version

Yikes ... a modern version !

There are so many Christmas Stories, but this is one of my favorites so I focused on  "The Little Drummer Boy".  I'll be curious to hear your responses to the three different versions ... :)

Thursday Art Date With Rain


Being cozy is a state of mind (and warm body) but to my two boys, Chachi and Fonzi, it is a way of life.

Now that they are older they have included our newest kitty (Buffy Boo) in their cozy ways.  Diva (the devil child) our other female cat has never been big on "cozy" so it was always just the boys.  But Buffy, who spent the first year of her life outside and alone, was ripe for some lovin' and the boys were more than happy to give it ...
