Snow Window

January is traditionally the month when I use some snowflake/snowman decorations in the house. Somehow that seems a bit incongruous this winter, though, since we haven’t had much snow. (Not complaining! The past couple of years have had enough white stuff to last awhile.) Temps have been mild, almost early-Spring-like, so I really didn’t get behind the snow stuff in the house.
Then a couple of weeks ago I came across this photo on a blog:

It inspired me to gather my blue glass canning jars and do something similar in my own kitchen window:

Instead of battery-operated candles and glass beads, I used some Epsom salt in the bottoms, then added some of my collection of crocheted snowflakes inside the jars, and draped a string of white lights behind them:

This is so pretty at night, plus I get to enjoy some snow without the cold, wet, muddy mess it makes!

Reminds me of walking on a winter's night, seeing the snow sparkling in the moonlight, and thinking, "If only I could capture this in a jar . . . " Well, you did! Simply beautiful!

Tammy, these are lovely! Wish my bathroom window had a ledge. :-)
