Quote on Spiritile: "Seeing is Believing But sometimes... the most real things in the world are the things we cannot see" ~ The Conductor (Polar Express)

In 2017 Houston introduced us to a snowy cabin on a hillside. In 2019's holiday Spiritile he brought us closer to the cabin's warmth. 2021 brought us inside. This year, Houston has brought us back outside into the snow and given the cabin a magical sense of place. All along, we have been immersed within a miniature world, one which finds its place in one of our favorite childhood possessions: a snow globe. 

Houston has been playing with the concept of creating a snow globe Spiritile for years. With well over a decade of time spent mastering his unique medium, and several years worth of time spent embellishing his holiday story, he's built a brilliant crescendo into his Spiritile collection. 

"Believe" asks us to do just that. Transport ourselves into a world in which the falling snow feels like soft kisses from the sky, our journey is filled with wonder, the light of home lifts our spirits, and our world is filled with the most real thing of all, something we cannot see: Love. 

From the Artist:
It’s the smell of Fraser fir, cinnamon and
warm vanilla in the air-
Holiday music plays softly, fusing with the laughter of your loved ones for all to hear.

It’s that moment waiting at the top of the stairs- before you’re able to come down to see what is there.
And what was always on the table,
served every single year.

It’s being embraced with love, as everyone came together from far and near.
It’s the simplest moments that are in your heart forever to hold dear.
It’s the traditions and nostalgia you hold close,
that will never fade away-
In your heart and mind is where they will always stay.

These small things we recall- smells,
sounds, and tastes-
They are the flooding memories that fill us, reminiscing of the most special time and place.

You see, sometimes it’s not about the reality of the world but the way we perceive it.
The way that we want to experience it-
how we want to remember it.

We choose to see the good, the warmth, the love that surrounds us in our most wonderful moments of life.

So, as this season is upon us and we start
back down memory lane-
Choose to see the good, choose to feel the warmth and the love; choose to Believe.
