I Love My Snowglobes

 
I love my snowglobes
and I am so excited this year
because I get to enjoy them even more.
 
 
This summer we added an electric fireplace set into a bookshelf
which gives me a long, low surface to work with.
 
 
It is the perfect spot to display my favorites Christmas snowglobes.
 
 
In previous years my snowglobes were displayed
on top of the old upright piano.
 
 
 
While they looked quite lovely up there
I couldn't enjoy them as much as I can now
since they are on display at a lower height.
 
  
 
But it's not all snowglobes!
 
 
This little village scene lights up and plays music.
 
 
And these little ponds are adorable.
When you wind them up the skaters glide around the pond to music.
 
 
So, these Christmas evenings I get to sit by my fireplace
with my stitching while I enjoy the Christmas
lights reflecting off of my snowglobes
which brings me such delight!
