Paper Snowflakes

Blogging about Christmas in March might be a little over zealous, but I wanted to remember the snowflakes I made this year for the window. Inspired by a vintage, frugal version of home made, this year I used the snowflake cookie cutter and an old book I bought on 6th Ave to create a winter wonderland over my New York skyline. I cut the snowflakes using an exacto knife, then threaded them together with needle and cotton and hung them intermittently in the window with other types of snowflake I had found. The evergreen branches decked with white ribbon finished the scene. Next year I'm thinking I might add some creatures, or a nativity scene and definitely lots of holly & ivy as well. Having a cup of coffee in the morning and looking out at a crisp, December New York through gently twirling paper snowflakes gave me the feeling of living in a Christmas movie! One where you get locked in Bloomingdales for the holidays!! One can dream...
