Frost is a usual winter phenomenon, but depending on the right conditions, frost can form beautiful patterns. Window frost, or fern frost, or ice flowers is formed when a glass pane is exposed to freezing temperatures on the outside, and moderately moist air on the inside. This causes the water vapour particles to freeze to the glass in tree-like or star-like patterns. These patterns are affected and altered based on the imperfections in the glass, or dust particles. These photos reflect the beauty that nature can have, even in the coldest of months.

Wendy Tsao is a Canadian artist that makes children’s drawings come to life. It all started in 2007 when she was inspired by a self-portrait drawn by her son. She was drawn to the way her son visualized his artistic representation of himself, and wanting to give him a toy he could treasure and cherish forever, decided to turn his self-portrait into his very own "softie". After seeing the fantasy and wonder in these drawings, she decided to accept orders for custom softies. Her business is so popular, that she only takes 120 orders per year from people that are on a waiting list.
