Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It's winter time and for many of us that means cold temps and, of course, snow! I'm a freeze baby so winter is definitely NOT my favorite season. So, I logged on to Etsy tonight to see what I could find with a theme of snow flakes.

Growing up, my parents have had this set of drinking glasses that are frosted, with white dots all over and some houses and trees wrapping around the bottom. They are my favorite glasses to use around the holiday time. I even told my mom I was going to smuggle one back home with me this year...that didn't go over too well!

So, imagine my delight when I found these lovely glasses on daydreemdesign's shop! These glasses (and everything in her shop) are hand engraved. The detail on each of these is amazing. Each design is drawn by freehand - not traced. The end result is an individual (and signed) piece every time. Just like every snow flake is unique.

Daydreemdesigns does not just offer these glasses, though. You'll also find shot glasses, votive candle holders, champagne flutes, mugs and more! This shop even offers a FREE votive holder with a purchase of $35 or more. Cheers!

Great 1st entry! Those cups ARE cute! I actually have them marked as favorites myself.

Thanks! I'm amazed at the artist's handiwork on her pieces.

I'm in love with her stuff. I featured some of her champagne glasses last Thursday and then one of her candle holders today (sorry, did not check the blog before posting and I even asked about duplicating companies yesterday).
