Here are some of my totems and bird feeder during our last big snow. I thought they looked pretty cool.

Looks like you should take a few plates & a sharp knife & serve up some of that snow cake!!LOL What flavor is it?? The amber looks so lovely in the snow & with the sun shining on it looks so eloquent. Jan

I love how they look! Especially the colored glass. Mine are completely buried.

Your totems make even snow look good! lol! Now you'll have to show us a picture of them when everything is green ... which I hope won't be too long from now.

They're beautiful!! I love amber glass and the snow makes them look so interesting. That would make a great Christmas card.

RE: Snow totems

I've always worried about freezing temps so I don't leave my totems or glass garden stakes out for the winter. Have any of you had problems with breakage and cold temps? I always make my glass designs so water can't collect on them (turn plates over, cover tops with another piece, etc) but I still worry they might break due to the cold. TIA for any feedback :)

I love it!
I often wonder what my garden would look like with a blanket of snow, because I grew up with snow, but I only see one flake every 20 years here.
Enjoyed your picture, thanks for posting. The colored glass looks so beautiful against the snow.

rafor...the few pcs I have, I bring in to my garden shed...winter is pretty rough here in IA....they've weathered good 2 yrs now by bringing them in. This yr I left out my "blue bottles" tho (they're upside down) cause I know Kirk leaves his blue bottle tree out & it's so beautiful int he snow. I have enjoyed mine this winter, too...the BB fence.

Rafor, this is the second winter out for these totems and they seem to be fine. I too make them so they don't hold water, except for the bird feeder ones. We don't have extreme winters, but it was 12 degrees here this year. I think the glass totems hold up good, but I do put the ones with pottery or ceramic pieces in the shed. I also leave my bottle trees bottles out and I have some flower beds edged with wine and beer bottles and they are all fine too.
