2. Owls for Every Season by Marie of MarieYoungCreative
“Owls for Every Season” is a set of four seasons brown owl miniatures representing: winter, spring, summer, fall. I sculpted all of these critters by hand in my rural Pennsylvania studio in January which explains why Mr. Winter Owl looks a little grumpy!

3. Four Seasons Frames by Arlene of HarrisonHollow.
This month's PCAGOE challenge is the seasons. These 2x3" mini frames were very nice to start with but with the addition of custom mixed polymer clay they take on an added elegance. For more about how these frames were created, check out my blog entry at http://harrisonhollowdesigns.blogspot.com/2016/01/seasons-spring-summer-fall-winter.html

7. Seasons of Change by Beth of CreateMyWorldDesigns
Polymer wall art series, based on the theme of 4 seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter).

8. Japanese Seasons Tool Holder by Betsy of StrebeDesigns
Made for the PCAGOE February 2016 challenge - The Four Seasons.  My idea came from two sources, my continuing quest to make fun tool holders for my work area, and my immersion in Japanese culture for an upcoming family trip to Japan this summer.
