Like Freshly Fallen Snow....

The Winter White beads truly sparkle and shimmer like freshly fallen snow. Much of my work is nature inspired, and these beads are no exception.
There are woods directly behind our house that has a small creek running through it. Whenever it snows, Steve and I put on our warm coveralls and walk the woods. There is nothing more peaceful than a walk at night with the moon and snow lighting the way. It's always so quiet...only the sound of our steps and the wind through the trees. The crisp cool air even makes it seem easier to breathe. One of the simple, finer things in life for us.
I'm hoping for a white Christmas, and a family walk in the woods before the year end.
Thank you for the emails and your interest in these beads. Look for the Winter White beads, and others, on Etsy over the next few months.

That is one of the few times I enjoy winter...walking late at night in newly fallen snow as it crunches under my feet and like the entire earth has been insulated because the only sound is the crunching.

Hi Jen,

I truly love all four seasons, even Winter. I remember sledding in Garfield park as a child. I'm not sure if it was the sledding, or the hot chocolate afterwards that we sooo looked forward to! It's great how each season has its own memories!
