Winter's Ice & Snow in Our Terrarium

I thought I wouldn't want to decorate much at all this year, mostly because we are away from our girls and grands for the first time ever and that is very sad.
But, it didn't take long for me to yearn to do what I love most and that's to decorate!

Since, we are now, officially, "southerners" and we won't be seeing much snow or ice for the holiday's I decided to go with a winter, ice and snow theme this year. 
It started with our front door wreath and is now in our terrarium.

I just adore my little snowmen in their wintery scene with the tiny banner, I made, for some season's cheer

and a flickering votive that glistens on the snow.
Lots and lots of pretty snow.

Just a delight to see.

It takes center stage in our kitchen's bay window.

With lots more wintery ice and snow.
Balls of snow, fluffy snow, flakey snow, epsom salts with glitter...loose snow flakes, hanging ones and an assortment of icicles dangling from above.

I'll share more of that in my next post!


In case you missed them....here are a few more of my terrarium posts to inspire you.

I love the terrarium.. I guess that is a way for you to get ice and snow now. What's the temperature down there? Have a great week, JP. Linda

P.S. I love your decorating...
