Christmas Snow


Christmas Snow



My entry for the color challenge. I used jmdt's "Grandma's Parlor" minikit as well as the lovely starter kit Boo supplied. Thank you both for the kits. Poem is "The Frosted Pane" by Evaleen Stein:

When I wakened, very early,

All my window-pane was pearly

With a sparkling little picture traced in lines of shining white;

Some magician with a gleaming

Frosty brush, while I was dreaming,

Must have come and by the starlight worked through all the quiet night.

He had painted frosty people,

And a frosty church and steeple,

And a frosty bridge and river tumbling over frosty rocks;

Frosty mountain peaks that glimmered,

And fine frosty ferns that shimmered,

And a frosty little pasture full of frosty little flocks.

It was all touched in so lightly

And it glittered, oh, so whitely,

That I gazed and gazed in wonder at the lovely painted pane;

Then the sun rose high and higher

With his wand of golden fire

Till, alas, my picture vanished and I looked for it in vain!

Photo is of my parent's front yard in Tucson, AZ, Christmas 1987. Needless to say, snow doesn't last long there!
