Christmas Snow Lights



A Simple Nature Display

Christmas Light Abstract

We went for a ride to see our neighbor’s Christmas lights. I got some good shots, but something happened when I was taking this photograph, not sure what, but it was an interesting and kind of beautiful result. 🙂

Christmas in Brandon Park

The trees are lit in Brandon Park, Williamsport, PA. It’s a nice place to take a ride, to sit and feed the squirrels or to just reflect, read a book or play with your dog. I love the lights during the Holidays.

Crocheted Snowflakes

I enjoy crocheting. I’ve seen crocheted snowflakes on other people’s Christmas trees and always wished I could find them at a craft show or could find someone who could make some for me. I’ve crocheted afghans, baby sweaters and booties, but never tried something like snowflakes.

Last year I had a ‘theme tree’. The theme was Winter Woodland. My husband has blue porcelain wolf ornaments, so I created the theme around those. We bought icy blue, silver and white ornaments, I had some beaded snowflakes, made some beaded icicles and my husband and I went out and picked up some beautiful pine cones for the tree. Using mother of pearl glitter I “snowed” on all the store bought ornaments and the pine cones.

This year we’ll add the white crocheted snowflakes.

The smallest is made with cotton thread, is 2 inches in diameter. The medium size is made with a different weight of cotton thread and is 2.5 inches in diameter. The largest snowflake is made of baby yarn and is 4 inches in diameter.

There will be pictures of the tree, this year, to come. 🙂
