i heart snowmen

It's Show & Tell Friday. If you would like to participate or check out all the participants, head on over to Kelli's place.


I purchased this little snowman and snowwoman at a craft show a week or so ago. I thought they were so cute. I might as well come clean here. I'm a sucker for snowmen (and women). I only started collecting them about four years ago, and I have quite a collection.

I usually start bringing them out the day after Thanksgiving and some stay around until Spring. I'll have to share a few of my favorites in future Show & Tells. These two sit on a little bench, are beautifully made, and really have character.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope everyone has wonderful weekend. If you read my previous post, you know I'm on my way to Hawaii tomorrow. Even though some of you thought I should take the week off from blogging, I am planning to check in occasionally. My kids want me to report on what I'm doing each day. I don't think I'll get on-line every day, but I do want to post some pictures and keep family updated. So, we'll see.

What cuties your Mr. & Mrs. snowmen are! I love all of your snowmen and I know you have added a lot since I've been there in the winter.

I know you and Don are going to have an absolutely wonderful vacation - and so needed and deserved. Enjoy every minute!!

They are adorable! Definitely nice finds. :)

Mommy said...

How very adorable! I couldn't have something out like that though, my kids would be too tempted to play with them. :)

Jean said...

I love them too! Yours are adorable! I just can't seem to stop buying them!

Quinne said...

Hi Diana :) These are so sweet! I know what you mean about the snowpeople - maybe it's something in their expression and the fact that they are all bundled up and cozy looking?

Have a lovely holiday in Hawaii! Blessings, Q

They look so cute indeed! A friend of mine collects snowmen, too. I guess she has more than 200! It takes her a whole day to put them all up in her living room each november... ;-))

How many ones do you have?

Best wishes from Germany,
Anita

Melissa said...

When we lived in Oregon there was a couple that had a TON of snowmen. I shouldn't say the couple did... SHE DID! She was a HUGE collector. Every inch of space she could possibly spare was filled with a snowman. It was so fun to see!
I hope you have a fantastic time in Hawaii... something tells me you won't find too many snowmen there ;)

Sharon said...
