I have a heartfelt fondness for cardinals.
They were a favorite of my Grandma Metzger. She had images of them in many places around her farmhouse. She loved looking out her window and seeing those beautiful red feathers.
I later learned that there is an expression around when angels are near, cardinals appear.
And so, the moment I saw this lantern, with the single red cardinal perched upon a snowy winter branch, I just had to include it in our holiday decor collection.
I love the smaller size of the lantern, so that you can decorate with it in many places.
When you turn it on, a snow globe effect swirls a silvery, snowy glitter and an LED light illuminates the scene.
The finish of the lantern is a distressed whitish/gray.
Because there is a fan that swirls the glitter and LED lights, it may use up your batteries more quickly than other battery-operated items. That's why we include a USB power cord, so that you can plug this in for continued enjoyment.
And best of all, a snowy scene like this can be a beautiful decor item in your home not just through the holidays, but throughout the winter too. I may leave mine out year-round, surrounded by pictures of my loved ones, who have become my cardinal angels.

I purchased this to give as a gift. It is absolutely beautiful, and I am so happy Jill offered this in her shop. I’m hoping it comes back next year so I can buy one for myself!
