*~*~* SNOWFLAKES*~*~* One of My Favorite Things


Someone once said  "Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.”  The very first snowflakes of the year excite me just as much now as they did when I was young. Seeing them gather on a cold window, sometimes you can  see exactly how intricate they really are.  Amazing things, snowflakes.  One of my favorite ways to decorate for Christmas is with snowflakes...... glass, glitter, vintage or new, silver and white, large and small.  I have a collection of perhaps 30 snowflakes that I hang grouped against windows, on trees,  and in my kitchen in "dead space" under the cabinets.  It is a collection I continue to add to yearly.  This is just a small sample of what I have.... some of my favorite things.
