Ice Marbles

Leave it to some Canadians to take playing in the snow to the next level. Actually, the Canadian I'm referring to is Dawn, a So.Cal. native with a keen photographic eye who made the move "To The Outskirts" of Nova Scotia. And believe it or not, she and her family are making the most of the long, cold Canadian winter.

Check out these gorgeous "ice marbles" she made with her kids. All you need are balloons, water and a drop or two of food coloring. Stick your balloons outside to freeze and voila!--you've got some whimsical wintertime sculptures to dazzle and delight. And don't they photograph beautifully?

They are just too much fun... Husband is addicted to making them now! Let me know how they come out!
...and thanks for your kind words! Lovin' winter much more than we thought!
