Sharing a New Newsletter Blog and Market Monday!

Hi Friends
 and welcome to a new week,
new month and new beginnings.
 
First I want to give a special thanks
to all the birthday greetings
sent my way last Friday.
 It was the perfect day warm and gorgeous
and filled with blessings.
 
Then, winter roared up once again Sunday
as we were hit with freezing thunder sleet.
Yes, you read that right.
Thunder sleet.
I have never heard that term since we have lived in Texas 25 years.
Freezing temps with a layer of ice covering everything.
Our blooms are confused but cozy warm under the blankets
we placed to help them through this hopefully last blast of mother nature!
Looks like snow but it is really a sheet of ice.
My neighbor across the way had spring blooms just up,
now covered in ice.
 
*************
 
Today I stop in not only to welcome the new month but to share my new monthly newsletter,
Sort of giving it a little boost from the shelves of my etsy shoppe.
This is the second letter for the year
and I thank all who signed up to receive it last month
right to their inbox.
 
 
Today is also Market Monday
A week long list of selling sites
who offer cottage style décor and more.
 
I know many of you are under a new blanket of snow
and experiencing freezing temps too.
Take good care in this new round of weather.
I hope all are safe and warm.
 
Spring really is on the way soon.
Till then
Blessings and Blue Skies be yours.
 
Happy March!
 
XO
Celestina Marie

BRRRRR! We had a lovely weekend in the high 60's but today is raining and it will be back in the 40's this week here. Hopefully no snow though!

Such crazy weather.

Donna said...

I've never heard the term thunder sleet either! Hard to believe you are getting ice down there, I hope your pretty blooms will be ok! It's supposed to be 77 degrees here today. Not looking forward to the deep freeze back at home! Stay warm and snug inside your studio today:)

I've never heard of "Thunder Sleet" - It sounds horrible!
I just looked at your newsletter, you have so many beautiful items! Your shop is lovely! I've bookmarked it for when I want to send a gift to someone stateside :)

We had thunder sleet Sunday night too, and a lot of it! Schools closed today and again tomorrow. How did I miss signing up for your newsletter? Well, I've taken care of that now. Have a good week. laurie

We got a couple of inches of snow...which was much better than the 6 to 12 inches that they were calling for. The heavy snow ended up south of us. I know Spring is coming soon...more birds are back here now.
hugs,
Cindy

Wonderful newsletter. Thunder Sleet is not a very warm welcome to Spring. We are finally having "juicy" weather per our weatherman.
Wonderful Week of Creative Bliss Dear...

Nancy said...

Good Morning Celeste, Thank~You for the Birthday Wishes!! I am so glad to hear you had a wonderful Birthday too!! Thunder Ice is a New one, I bet your blooms are snug and cozy. We used to have to cover everything in FL, it's not pretty but worth it. I am going to skip over and see your Newsletter it sounds like a great idea. I have one for my Website but never thought of one for the Etsy Shop~ Have a Beautiful day Celeste!!

Huggs, Nancy

A belated Happy Birthday! I'm glad it was a nice warm day for you. I have not heard of thunder sleet either. Not exactly typical Texan weather! We have been the exception to the weather story here. It's been downright balmy since January. I'll take it!

Hi Celeste!

I can't believe how winter has been all over the country this year! It's so hard to imagine Texas with snow or ice!! I see some daffodils peeking their green leaves above the earth in my tiny back garden and for the life of me I don't know why. It's 11 deg here today! Spring has got to come... SOON!

I'm hopping over to see your newsletter now. So exciting!

love & hugs, Edie
