THE Snow Picture


A couple of years ago, it began to snow one day while Motor Man and I were at our shop.  When we got home, I stood inside our garage and took this picture, facing the street. It’s the full-size version of the photo on the sidebar of my blog.  Right over there ————————————————————————->>>

I love the light from my neighbor’s lamp post.

This immediately became my favorite snow picture of all that I’d ever taken.

It reminds me of the snow globe my grandmother had when I was a little girl. I was only allowed to hold it (with both hands) for about 15 seconds, shake it (gently) one time,  and then place it (carefully) back on Grandma’s desk.

It was made of glass, unlike the plastic ones you see these days. And it had lots and lots of “snow”.  I think someone had given it to Grandma as a gift.  I don’t know how valuable it was (in dollars and cents), but I know it was a treasure to her.  Maybe that’s why I loved it so much.  And I know that’s why I was taught to be so careful with it.

Here’s your virtual snow globe. No need to shake; just wait patiently and maybe some snow will appear!

  3. Thanks for bringing back such a great memory. Do you remember the little shaped soaps Grandma had in a little dish in her bathroom? Barb always thought they were the greatest things. Of course, no one would ever think of using them as SOAP!!

  4. Beautiful picture and I love the snow globe.

  7. June: LOL about the SOAP!!!!
    My Grandma also had a ‘real’ snowglobe and I loved to play with it and remember being very careful with it. I don’t consider the plastic ones and the ones with glitter as snow as ‘real’ snowglobes!
