Treasury Tuesday - Snow Day


This morning I woke up to find another blanket of snow covering everything in sight.

Oh joy.

This comes with the territory, living in Minnesota.  Anytime between the months of October and May, snow can be expected pretty much any given day (usually at the most inconvenient time).  I laced up my boots, put my mittens on and headed out to start shoveling the driveway.  Lucky me - it was the light, fluffy snow again.  Somehow, after clearing snow from two sets of steps, the patio, two vehicles and a double-wide 50-foot long driveway, lucky was not exactly what I was feeling.  However, as any Minnesotan who has ended up in the ditch after narrowly escaping a collision with a semi-truck twisting and turning on the icy freeway will tell you:  It could have been worse!

Today also marks the 62nd anniversary of the first snowfall being recorded in Los Angeles, California.

I'm perplexed by this fact.

Did it actually not snow in Los Angeles until January 11, 1949 or was it just that no one thought of writing it down until 1949? Either way - impressive!

In recognition of all things "snowy" today, I have created this treasury for all the folks who take the time to incorporate snow into their Etsy shops, one way or another.

The treasury can be found on Etsy HERE.  Please feel free to leave comments at the bottom of the treasury on Etsy, and share too!!




  1. Great treasury... I wish it snowed here in Florida from time to time. :)

  2. Shellie,

    Had I only known you wanted snow! My mom is there on vacation right now. I would have GLADLY sent some along in her suitcase for you - We have PLENTY to go around. If only dry ice weren't so expensive!! ;)

    Stay warm!
    (Probably not as tough for you...)
