Red Cardinal

I know it's a bit early, but I saw this snow globe and just had to buy it.  I've always been fascinated by the red cardinal.  I never see this delightful bird where I live.  This snow globe reminds me of me and my three kids.

Bird watching and taking pictures of them is one of my favorite things to do, so if you ever see this wonderful red bird, take a picture of it and send it to me, would you?

I collect snow globes, and I'll add this sweet one to my collection for Christmas.

  (by the way, I bought this at Home Goods, in case you want to get one for yourself.)

Dear Husband loves snow globes. Really! I believe it is the only childish treat I find in him ahahahah
Do you know what it is to walk into a store and have your husband shaking the snow of every snow globe he can get his hands on?! ahahah
So it was funny to see someone else I love sharing the fascination and love.
I love red cardinals. So between us both, him and me, you hit jackpot with your buy.
And it's never too soon to dream and fancy happy times that soon will be upon us.
Enjoy the Season Dear Friend!

Pretty little snow globe Sheri! It must be amazing to look out of the window and see a Cardinal… they are not in my area either , unfortunately!

Terra said...

I can see why you bought this beautiful snow globe, the red cardinals are a spark of color in it. I would be tempted if I see one in a store, tho we don't have that store in my town.

snow globes, I love them too.. I have several and half to stop myself from getting more.. I have little ones but a couple of big ones.. this is a pretty one with love Janice


I love redbirds and snowglobes. What a perfect combination. There is something spiritual about those birds.You always seem to see them when you need to.

Stephanie said...

Oh Sheri, I love your snowglobe! My precious grandmother loved Cardinals so every time I see a Cardinal I think of her.

Love and hugs to you, friend!

Marijana said...

That is really cute, Sheri! I love cardinals, too, and we are fortunate to have them here at our feeders all winter. I will try to get some pictures for you this year. xo Diana

Hope you have a good week dear friend.

I love your new snow globe, Sheri! Miniature, magical worlds! We don't have cardinals here, either, but I have seen them on vacation in Arizona. Love your frosty rose, too. Hugs xo Karen

That snow globe is so cute

Imogen said...

This snow globe is so perfect, I could look at its beauty for ages.

Good morning dearest Sheri! You know that if I'm late to a post, it's because of my crazy school schedule. But the mornings is when I catch up and here I can see you have peaceful beauty on your mind....we have many cardinals in our yard and if I am able to snap a photo of one, I will send it to you! They are hilarious to watch, especially those busy males. They are territorial and do a challenge dance to see who wins over the space. Then comes the female, so cute with her gray body and little red plume.

Big hugs to you dear friend, Anita

Snow globes are so magical. I think mainly because they take me back to childhood. I would love to see one of those beautiful birds!

Bety said...

There really is something magical, enchanting snow globes in. As you step into another world ...

I also really love birds and red cardinal bird is very impressive. Unfortunately for us not to occur.

It can be found in southern Canada, through the eastern United States from Maine to Texas and south through Mexico.

You can enjoy here:

It is gorgeous!!! I love snowglobes as well! I live in Montreal, Canada, and have only seen a few cardinals and they are such lovely birds.

Snow globes are so magical aren't they?
I have a small collection myself and some of them play music too.
We have a Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal that live in our Wax Myrtle Trees-I too will try and snap a photo and send you a picture of them.
I really like yours and the symbolic meaning it has for you, your rose dusted with frost is very pretty too.
Have a lovely weekend,

Oh, I love snow globes too, my friend. I think they're magical. Miss AJ collected a few when she was younger, I have one I love to stare at throughout the holiday season, with a train going in circles through the snow. Reminds me of Narnia. ;)
And now I'll think of you each time I look at it. :)
No cardinals in South Florida, or none that I've ever spotted, but they are so pretty, aren't they.
Have a lovely weekend.

Dear Sheri,

Love your sweet snow globe with the red cardinals. Snowglobes have always fascinated me too and the magical look they give, when you shake up the snow. Always reminds me of when I was a child and we had one.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend

What a beautiful snow globe. We have plenty of Cardinals around here. The next time I see one I will send you a picture. I am also fond of snow globes and found one on West Elm of a deer among birch trees that I'm thinking of purchasing. They are so magical to me and it reminds me if when I was a child and was content to continually turn the one I had upside down for hours. When you are a child, little things can bring about very happy times.

I am preparing dinner for husband and I. Even though it is only the two of us he enjoys it so much I can't say no. LOL. So, I'll be at the stove most of the day.

In case I don't get back to your blog before Thanksgiving. Have a Happy one!
