We haven’t gotten snow here since Halloween (it still feels wrong saying that), and even though snow can be a pain, I always enjoy the first good one of the season. Good snow to me equals: A quick trip to Central Park to stroll around and watch kids go sledding, a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows, snuggling on the couch for a festive movie or two. Oh, and icicles!
I love when these crystalline beauties reflect light outside my window. These hand-sliced Selenite Icicle Ornaments remind me of the first snow, slowly melting into silvery spikes. These would be gorgeous on a Christmas tree, but I like them as shown here, on a branch, perhaps planted in a jar. Plus, there’s no danger of these icicles snapping off from the tree and falling and injuring you, which is always a qualification of good design in my book. That’s nice ice, baby.
