The prediction was for 3" and we got it! For a while the snowflakes were huge. Since it's supposed to be cold this week, I think the snow will stay around for a while... the perfect inspiration for creating Christmas decorations!
Dave needed to go to Michigan today, and on our way home we stopped at a Dollar Tree. Look what I found! they were only $1 per bag, half the price of the Dollar Tree near our house.
I now have little dishes and bowls filled with glass gems scattered around the house!
They look so pretty and festive!
I think they make fabulous Christmas decorations.
I love seeing the little beads of color everywhere I look!
To top it all off, I have glass gems in almost every color I have seen! Will I ever manage to turn them all into Ice Drops? Probably not, but I will be able to enjoy them for a long, long time!
Despite our 5 hour trip to Michigan, I did manage to finish three more Ice Drops today. The one on the left didn't have enough pizzazz, so I painted it with glitter nail polish for some extra bling! I love the Swarovski crystals, and I would really like to find more frosted glass gems like the one on the right. I'm having a great time hunting for treasure!
