25 Days of Christmas Day 16

Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow
 
 
Here's some music for you to listen to while you read this 16th day of Christmas.
One of the things that is so important for so many (at least in the northern hemisphere) is to have snow at Christmas.
Yes, that cold white stuff that looks so pretty falling and resting on tree branches when you're in the comfort of your warm home.
At least that's how I like it. We got quite a wallop of it the other day and everyone was out shovelling their driveways.
But while the real thing was falling from the sky, I was creating some pieces with the fake stuff.
 
I came across mason jar lamps awhile ago and I sold some to a primitive shop. But now I'm enjoying the lighter side of things but can still utilize the lamps.
I have fake snow in here with a silver decoration. An old vintage Christmas card would look good in here too. The ideas are endless.
To purchase a mason jar adapter kit, Canadians can go here. They have a retail store but mainly ship from online orders. For my American friends check here.
Last week I bought a glass just like this but I broke it.  So I went back and got another because I thought it was so pretty. I was going to buy both of them and now I have.
It's silver plated but that's fine by me. I think it's so pretty.
I poured some Epsom salts in this glass and put a piece of greenery in, and cut off three red berries from a stem full of berries. Simple and pretty.
 
An old crown jar with a rusty star, two small red ornaments, and a primitive candy cane.
 
Another corner of the living room.
More on what I did with this shelf later.
 
While snow may not be on my list of must have's, it wouldn't be the same if it wasn't ever around.
 
One thing that a freshly fallen snow does remind me of is this:
 
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool
Isaiah 1:18
