Take The Road Less Traveled

Hikers and campers recognize the cairn as more than just a pile of rocks--historically used as a pre-war ceremony in Scotland, they've now come to serve as a simple reminder that the path you're walking has been walked before. This symbolic gesture of togetherness takes center stage in this beautiful snow globe, an inspired token for nature enthusiasts or your favorite trail blazer. Made in China.

Due to the nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Married artists-turned-professionals Liz Ross and David Westby were living fast-paced Los Angeles lives when a bout of carpal tunnel required Liz to take a long rest. Released from daily work pressures, her mind drifted. A New York City native, “I was always homesick for the East Coast,” she says. She missed autumn leaves. A lot. In 2005, the couple moved to rural Vermont to resume being artists. Inspired by their peaceful new surroundings, they hit upon the idea of making artistic snow globes that magically evoke beautiful, silent moments in nature. The Nightbulb grew out of a snow globe concept, because, well, you know how an artist’s mind drifts.

Bought this for my sister to add some peace to her new office space. She loved it.

Hoodoo Snow globe


We travel a lot and always pick up rocks to make "Hoodoos" for our backyard. When I saw this snow globe I knew it was the perfect gift for my husband. He will have a hard time trying to out do me on this gift. Here is a new idea for you, how about a single palm tree inside a snow globe? We would love to own one.

We thought this would be a great gift for neighbors who build cairns but we were disappointed. The snow looks terrible. Later we saw similar globes at far less price.
