"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.I 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 :)
If you'd like the pattern for these, you can find it here or here.
And here is someplace that is always beautiful, but whose gardens are even prettier with the addition of a few snowflakes:
