Snow Globe

This pretty little snow globe went to the shop around the corner, S'More Couture, where I sell many of my handmade items. We decorated for Christmas two weekends ago so I'm in the Spirit of Christmas now. I made this from a open-ended Christmas ornament from which I removed the plastic innerworkings and replaced it with what you see: batting, sparkled baby's breath, copy of vintage image, mica snow, plastic snowflakes, and a plastic icicle. Above hangs a little chandelier crystal and below I've used a ribbon spool and flat cardboard disc, both covered with old music and around which I've glued more sparkled baby's breath. Now I need to find another ornament to take apart. I wish I'd bought more last year but who was to know I'd actually use it? I've got too much stuff as it is and am getting rid of lots in my sallylsmith.etsy shop (see side bar). November and December are slow months on Etsy so I don't anticipate much action but those months are usually big in the retail shop market so I'm hopeful I'll actually make a profit this year. All is in the Lord's hands.
Proverbs 16: 3--"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."

Oh' how I love this! Wish I lived closer so all your creativity could rub off on me.

Hugs...Tracy :)
