S.....

Craft Barn Alphabet challenge time again. Not much time and a letter with a huge number of words but can't fall so close to the finishing line .... my first thought was Serendipity, because it is such a lovely word to say and that's mainly how I work But my old dictionary had a different definition to the normal usage of " happy accident" that we have now.  It said "the liking for old books and ornaments.  Mmmm! I thought about it for a few days but nothing was happening so I delved into the dictionary again and it opened at the snow page, very seasonal.    Out of all the snow words I chose this because the definition made me laugh. "Snowstorm: a storm with falling snow."  Right. So here we have Snowstorm.
 and with tag
 The little houses are Memory Box die cuts and the snowflakes are a mixture of die cuts and punched. The paint is  Fresco Ice Blue and Baltic Blue with some acrylic white added.
I have also finished the cover for the book where I am keeping all the letters but I am keeping that secret for now.  Thought occurred, I wonder what I would have chosen for S if it were July instead of November?

I'm thinking if this were July, your word would be "sunshine"! :-) Lovely snowstorm you have there, though...and much more peaceful than the real thing! :-)

Seaside? sun? sand? It's a superbly seasonal page. Sensational snowflakes.

What a lovely snowy page! Makes you wonder why a snowstorm needs defining!!

What a beautiful seasonal interpretation of S, I love the dictionary definition no wonder you could'nt resist. We used to have a wonderful secondhand bookshop in Guildford years ago, I used to browse in there for hours.
