Snowflakes are a miracle of art and design that drop on your head like kisses from heaven...

The Snowflake Man

"Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind."
Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley 1925

I looked at a lot of snowflake pictures while I was planning this years Christmas Love Box. My favorites were taken by Wilson Bentley who was passionate about the beauty of snowflakes. His pioneering work in photomicrography has left a treasure.

Go to this site and give yourself a treat. Look at each photo enlarged. They are breathtaking! These pictures and the story of Snowflake Bentley would make a wonderful show-n-tell for anyone who needs one.

Next time you happen to be out in a storm remember that this is the grace and the beauty crowning your head, and you will feel like a princess.

For my anniversary, my sweetheart gave me a set of BedHead pjs. They are soooo lovely if a bit pricey. They now have a few different sets in Liberty of London fabrics.
