Broken Lantern + Ball Jar = Snow Globe


Chipping with Charm:  Lantern+Ball Jar=Snow Globe...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/

Sorry I have been MIA again this week...still busy decorating and creating.  I LOVE this time of year...and for me it's not just a matter of opening some bins and putting stuff out.  I like to use things I have and create a new look each year.  Time consuming...but for me it's a little piece of Heaven on earth.  Really.

And since I'm not ready for a "reveal" of what I've been working on here...I thought I'd show you something else I made for our booth at Antiques Downtown...

I bought this empty shell of a lantern at an occasional sale...

...it was the perfect fit for a ball jar.

I painted the lid aqua for fun.

Some "snow" and a little tree...
