Then you wake up in a shimmering white world. You have been transported to living among the stars! There can be no greater act of “magic.” The first snowfall is truly a Winter Wonderland— an everyday enchantment worthy of awe.
Those are my childhood memories which are, like snowflakes, delicate little lights glimmering in my mind, each unique and yet all with a common theme.
It was under the spell of memory that Mom and I designed two Winter Princess sweaters.
The one-of-a-kind sweater from the night sky blue-purple yarn was made glamorous with matching silky eyelash trim.
Wilson A. Bentley. A self-taught Vermont farmer who began working in the late 1800s, when he was 15 years old, on developing a new photography technique that blended camera and microscope. He spent years creating the tool and then using it to photograph snowflakes.
His snow crystal photos were the first and the 5,000 pictures over 40 years showed science that each snowflake is unique.
