Blizzard, if you will.

For the last week or so, it's been snowing non-stop. I love it when the snow is too deep to navigate successfully in my tiny car --and bald tires. The layers, puffer jacket, glittens and industrial-strength socks and boots come out and I march off around the neighborhood to complete my errands, or, as I pretend to myself-- grab the essential medicines and supplies or else everyone will freeze and starve to death.

...or get eaten by giant spiders.

Check out these marvelously magical/creepy/beautiful/haunting snow globes by artists Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz. All of you in more southerly climes will be clamoring for a little bit snow-- real or in a globe-- yourselves...







Going outside,

Elissa.

Dealing with snow is only fun when you don't have to!

I love the second image with the fox and the girl, it's so lovely, and now I feel like hunting down a snowglobe to photograph!

LyddieGal: Great idea! Sounds like a fun, wintertime project!
