Spring is in the Air

That spring-time blizzard outside your window might not be snow. If you live near cherry trees, then it might just be the explosion of pale pink blossoms that erupt on the branches before being thrown into the air on a spring breeze.

Even if you don't live near these beautiful trees--or if springtime seems a long way off--you can enjoy their abundance with this cherry blossom snow globe. Just give it a shake, and you can enjoy miniature flurries of sweet, pink petals all year round. Made in China.

Married artists-turned-professionals Liz Ross and David Westby were living fast-paced Los Angeles lives when a bout of carpal tunnel required Liz to take a long rest. Released from daily work pressures, her mind drifted. A New York City native, “I was always homesick for the East Coast,” she says. She missed autumn leaves. A lot. In 2005, the couple moved to rural Vermont to resume being artists. Inspired by their peaceful new surroundings, they hit upon the idea of making artistic snow globes that magically evoke beautiful, silent moments in nature. The Nightbulb grew out of a snow globe concept, because, well, you know how an artist’s mind drifts.

Beautiful but.....

Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

I gave this to my wife as a Christmas present and she loved it! That was until looking at the inside closely, she saw a human hair floating around and stuck in the cherry trees. Now, that's all she notices. I appreciate that it was handmade, but now the hair floating around ruins the magic and beauty of the globe.

A wonderful idea

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

I love the idea of the cherry blossom trees and the cherry blossom petal "snow". Personally I did not care for the sparkles that were included-they were too much. I thought the snow would look more like light pink petals I guess. The trees themselves looked unrealistic and cheap. I also didn't think the quote on the side was necessary-less is more?

      Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

      I like to keep this item on my nightstand so that I can see it every morning. Cherry blossoms are very sentimental to me- it reminds me of the warm, happy season of spring.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The globe is beautiful and delivery was on time. My only issue is that the globe has a few very minor scratches on its surface.
