A Snowflake Authority - Bentley

By: Jacqueline Briggs Martin
What a great book. It is an autobiography about Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley, a photographer/scientist who studied snowflakes. Over time he discovered that all snowflakes are different.


Actual photos by Bentley

We made several different snowflakes of our own. And being true to science... no two were alike!

Buttons, pom-poms, glitter, cotton balls, gems and sequins ... Oh My!
