It’s been a big year, sometimes it’s tough to keep your head above water! I think my girls need a top-up.
I’ve had a long held fascination with things inside glass balls. Snowdomes! I love them, unsurprisingly. And this time of the year just brings all my deliciously kitsch treasures and delights out on show and I actually get away with it! Hoorah.
A girlfriend and I were backpacking in Europe, as you do, a million years ago when I picked this little lovely up in … well … Paris of course! It’s long been a favourite.
This little treasure has been with me for years and years. A little bit of christmas delight. In a dome. Deliciously kitsch and cute and christmassy. Meets all the criteria.
And this is everything I love about a snowdome, a surf scene with palm trees in snow. Love it! I’d die of delight if I found a goodie like this on holiday, alas I don’t have this, I found it at Snowdomes.com – you should check out the Morocco one if you look – priceless!
I’m such a fan of this girl’s fabulous artwork.

Bringing my happy snowdome wanderings back home to Craftland …
Look at these beautiful glass baubles deliciously filled with ephemera and souvenirs of the year past. Is there not a more perfect way to stop and reflect. How beautiful are these? Kirsty at kootoyoo
