the s-word and winter inspired earrings

Finally, finally the cold is letting up some. The Eisblumen have disappeared from the window pane. The temps might even reach 0° during the day - sounds pretty good to me. And as predicted - we are getting the s-word - that white stuff everybody thinks looks so pretty... well it is, if viewed on a picture, I guess - like this maybe...



Especially if you are cuddled up like this?



We have had about 4 inches since yesterday, with more to come. So I will be spending lots of time outside in the fresh air, shovelling sn.. I can't say it. the s-word....

But my muse did find inspiration in the cold winter weather and this is what she prompted me to make:



Leaves - just the colour of the leaves still clinging to the hedge; with gems that remind me of frost and icicles...

Hope you are all warm and cozy, where ever you are...

Those earrings are just stunning! Your interpretation is so vivid. I can totally see the stray dead leaves peeking out behind ice crystals and snow ladened branches.

Hello Renate! We sure don't have any of that "S" word around here...what a strange winter we've had compared to the last 2 years. The kids haven't had a single snow day off from school yet!
What a sweet picture of the kitties in the basket! And your earrings are gorgeous...the crystal daggers look like icicles. I bet they look fabulous when worn!
