Anthropological inspiration

While perusing the Anthropologie website, these little glass jars caught my eye. I clicked on the image, interested in purchasing the tiny snow globe, only to realize I was fooled by one of their brilliant and beautiful marketing techniques. It was actually jewelry being sold, not snow globes; earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and vintage watches glittered among the mini winter wonderland displays. And while I love Anthro's jewelry, I am tempted to try and make a handful of these magical, tiny snow globes myself...

I think I'll make a quick trip to Michael's later today to see what I can find. Stay tuned for how this turns out...

Any recommendations for the fake snow?

On another note, I did buy these bone china geese measuring cups for half off the original price (dishwasher and microwave save). I think they'll look adorable on the countertop at my new apartment. This set would also be a great gift for the holidays!

  2. I can't wait to see the snow globes! I love their magical look. (P.S. - the geese measuring cups are too cute!!).

  3. These are beautiful...can't wait to see what you come up with!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog, love finding new readers!

  4. I like that gaggle. Quite the addition.

  5. You solved a xmas gift as my niece-in-law loves ducks and they love to cook. I'm definitely saving it to my favorite website selections.

  6. Nice blog! I live in Chicagoland too! CHEERS! Michele

  7. Did you come up with an idea for the snow? I love this soooo much. Great spotting... This is a stylists dream...

  8. I still don't understand the anthropolgie 'watch snow globe' ... and why anyone would pay $228 for two watches hooked together that are? are not? in the snow globe. (I buy these for .50 ea. at a local thrift). The people that bought them from anthropolgie don't seem to happy either!

    Personally I think it would be very cool TO have them submerged for all 'time'...!

    Anywhoooo...I love your little snowman snow globe, but love the trees in the blue ball jar even better.

    Have yet to make one, but my research shows that crushed egg shells (hardboiled eggs) is supposed to do the trick...sparklies (glitter)optional.
