Snow Globes

You know those little snow globes that you shake up? I always thought my brain was sort of like that. You know, where you just give it a shake and watch what comes out and shake it again. It's like that.
~Gary Larson

If you know who Gary Larson is, the above quote doesn't surprise you at all. Today's post almost didn't happen, primarily due to a wonderful program whose timing is awful, but here it is. Snow globes!

I love this snow globe painting by the Art Meister.

This Etsy shop has fantastic snow globes.

The detail from the Reindeer Snow Globe is really nice to see. We don't often get to check out close-ups of items in a globe.

Loved the Larson quote...anyone who could come up with the Far Side cartoon would indeed have a "snow-globe brain." :-)

And I, too, absolutely love the Art Meister painting. Exceptional!

Loved this post! I adore snowglobes, and have some I put out at Christmas. Gorgeous close up photos.And I agree, that painting by Artmeister was unique and fun.
