On a Roll: PDF Pattern - Vanilla Snowflake Earrings

"Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!"

No snow yet ... but we did have our first heavy frost this week! The air is certainly chilly enough for visions of snow and roaring fires; inspiring these cute vanilla snowflake lace earrings.PDF crochet pattern easy vanilla snowflake lace earringsI went ahead and embellished one pair with Swarovski crystals and freshwater seed pearls .. oh la la la! They embroider like a dream! I had such fun playing with patterns and possibilities, but once I settled on the red and white candy cane colors, each earring only took about 30 minutes to embroider. I plan on wearing mine about the house while I bake holiday cookies and wrap presents :)

Those are so pretty! They are so festive and look light. The Crystals and pearls make them very elegant. I wish I could see snow sometime. It always looks lovely in pictures.
