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.

I really think this is a beautiful item and a great gift .
Like some of the other posters I think the quote is too much/irrelevant but do not think that the glitter is too much, it is very subtle.
I am however extremely disappointed that I received this item with an air bubble. That is something that happens to snow gloves with age and should not be present in a brand new purchase. Unfortunately I ordered the item too close to Christmas and do not have time to exchange and receive a new one prior to gift giving (which I would've done had there been time and if this was a purchase for myself The air bubble would be too distracting from the beauty to keep for me).

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.

My daughter collects snow globes, and it is our tradition that I buy her one each Christmas. She's 25 now, so I need to be more and more creative to find something unique. This snow globe fits the bill !

Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

My sister got married in DC in the spring so this globe made the perfect commemoration gift. She and her husband loved it! I would recommend it to a friend but not a close one! I love the originality of it so to preserve that, I will keep it under wraps!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

      I'm in LOVE! It's unlike anything else out there! The craftsmanship is pristine! Makes a wonderful, sentimental gift for any occasion, but especially those that happen in the spring. Mother's Day, birthdays, weddings, even for a new baby! In lieu of flowers, I ordered one for my dearest friend who lost her own mother to cancer in April. As she gazed into it and shook it gently, it brought the both of us to tears! Fits perfectly on a desk or nightstand.

      Pretty, but...

      By 

      from Boston,MA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about UncommonGoods Cherry Blossom Snow Globe:

      The pink "blossoms" are pretty but all the branches are too rigid and pointing up. They don't look graceful enough. They should be spread out more in downward direction. Plus way too much glitter. And the bridge should be wood colored. Silver looks too cold.
