Winter snow globe

i think snow globes are magical. i remember doing a craft project in grammar school or it could have been brownies. it's been a long time since i was in either one. we used baby food jars, oil, glitter and plastic objects like prizes from the gum ball machine or cracker jack box. i remember loving the time we spent working on the project. we made them as christmas gifts for our parents. i was thrilled when my mom opened it and made a fuss. crafting was fun 38 years ago and i'm still enjoying it. these two snow globes were designed using vintage candle stick holders the base the angels are sitting on. the domes i picked up from michael's, snow flakes and a banner wishing winter blessings, a little glitter and glam. today i took them over to my booth i sure hope they find a home quick they're really cute!
