Penelope Puddle Snow Glow

MY WORLD TODAY IF FULL of appreciation. Over the years my daughter has given me many gifts related to the character she created when she was a child. Christmas almost always included unwrapping a painting of Penelope Puddle enjoying West Coast life with her sidekick umbrella. Although these drawings have gotten fewer as life has gotten busier, her gift to me this year was a Penelope drawing inserted into a real snow globe. To say I was delighted is an understatement. This one-of-a-kind snowflake melted my heart.

Explorers can find more sites from around the globe at My World.


  1. Oh, this is so wonderful. Trust her to find a way to put Penelope and her umbrella into a snow globe. I can hardly wait to see it for myself!!
    Meanwhile, have a happy new year.

  2. That's fantastic. What a creative and thoughtful daughter you have.

    You mentioned on mine not knowing where I lived. I am in central North Carolina in a part of my state known as the triangle area because Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the Research Triangle Park kind of join together with people working in one place, living in another since they are close to each other.

  3. Very nice, those personalized gifts are the best.
