I have a very small collection of Snow globes in my Christmas box, that we take down each year in December (although not last year because the living room was a mess after moving here.

I think that Snow globes are such a darling cute thing, and I’ve always liked them. I don’t think I had any as a kid, but one of the first years I lived away from home, I bought myself a big snow globe with an angel in. It might have been my first Christmas decoration as an adult…

I can’t find a photo of it right now, but I will share one later when I can.

Snow globes are like a little miniature world inside a glass dome. I think they beat any Santa, Elf, or any of the other Christmas decorations I can think of right now (except twinkling lights, those I love too)…

But of course, anything miniature is always cute, right?

And being in a white snow landscape is also very magical. I wish that you all could have been here in the beginning of the week. It was so beautiful, with every bare tree branch covered in white fluff.

Now it’s raining, and probably a white Christmas is not within reach this year (here), but a bit north from here there is a lot of white snow. And inside my miniature snow globes, it’s always snowing…

I continue to jump between being (and embracing being) a Collector and being a Minimalist (or at least wanting to embrace the “more is less” scene). But of course a couple of rather small snow globes is not a huge collection either, so maybe I can be both? ;-)

Last year I got these two wooden figures, made around the same time I was born probably.† Mom found them when thrifting, and they are now in my collection of Christmas things in the attic… It’s Santa and mrs Santa:

I’m also a big fan of tinsel… and on my wish list is one of those snow globes that features a pink flamingo…

What is your favorite thing to decorate with in December?
