Monthly ATC Invite - March Garden Calendar

Every warm blooded Canadian girl of a certain age knows who Gordon Lightfoot is. Oh my back in the 70's he was a slurpie of the highest order (i.e. you had to slurp because of all of the drool). I had many of his albums which I played constantly - but you did have to be a fan of folk music.  You may have heard one or two of his songs ...including the one which inspired this month's ATC....
My image for March included pussywillows which immediately made me think of the song Pussywillows oldie but a goodie that celebrates Spring.
The background is old wrapping paper. I had a "stickie" pussywillow that fit just right. The album cover image was found on the Internet. Pop over to Penny's site and check the comments to see who else is participating in our swap ...Enjoy Jewels


  1. I most certainly did enjoy your post - the music and the great ATC. So pretty, Julie! Carol

  2. Ah, that music was lovely. I've never heard of Gordon Lightfoot but I can imagine he was a slurpie! Lovely ATC - I have a pussywillow in my garden. It was in a pot, looking sad and stringy but with no fluffy buds. We put him in the garden and now he's gone mad, sprouting pussywillow buds for the first time - strange, or what?! I haven't done my ATC yet, but I have finished your postcard and envelope..... :o) When did we say we were going to send them out?


  3. Pussywillow is perfect for your lovely March ATC. We call cattails catkins here ! A sweet song. Thank you for playing along & your comment. My background is using chalks.

  4. Lovely post! Perfect ATC for March, fab collage mix. M
