A Few Snowmen Decorations

Hi there everyone. How are you doing with your Christmas decorations. I am almost done, just have my village to put up and I might get that done tonight....probably after the hockey game. Hawks and Rangers are still tied 0-0.... with 9 minutes to go.

Shoot.....Hawks lost....1-0 in overtime.

Thought I would give you a few shots of my snowmen through out the house. Here they are.
 This Votive Snowman sits on the TV table....can you see, I am watching the NHL Network???
 This ceramic Snowman is pretty old. My mother gave it to me when JP and I were first married. So he is at least 43 years old.
 I bought this Snowman candy dish last summer at a garage sale...cute isn't he? Candy is good too...Lindor Chocolate mint. One a day keeps the Doctor away????
 This is a Snowman ornament that hangs on my lamp, watching me as I play on my computer. He has been around for a long time too, not sure when I got him....I think he was a gift.
 I bought this Snowman door hanger this year at Shopko....I think I need another door hanger for the back door.
 This Snowman ornament hangs in the center piece on the dinning room table.
This Snowman is sitting on the front porch. Now there is a story behind this Snowman. This was the first Christmas gift JP gave me back in 1971, so it's 45 years old. I was very disappointed though....because I honestly thought he would give me an engagement ring....but alas, this Snowman and Santa Claus were in the box (Mr Santa got sold at a garage sale many years ago.) JP never did give me an engagement ring....he is not that kind of guy. When we did get married, I had to buy my own ring.....nice, huh???

This Snowman is sitting on the front porch in the planter.....he wiggles around when the sun is shinning.....I might put him in the car on the dashboard....we need a little smile each day when we take off in the car. I heard it might be easy to find the car, course I always park in the same spots at the different stores I shop at. So maybe that would not be a problem for me.

Well, I hope you liked my little tour of Snowmen....I think there are my village, which I need to set up before JP comes home in two hours....better get cracking here.

You all have a great night and keep looking up ~~ better days are coming. Cheers ~ Louise

What a cute collection of snowmen you have, Louise. I do think you should put one in the car on the dash--just for a smile when you get in the car. I have a couple of snowmen but never had more than one or two. I collected Santas for years though. The snowmen are really fun and can go all through the winter, too. xo Diana

Hi Diana. Thanks on the snowmen, they will probably be out till the end of January. Maybe I should give them a storage box of their own and mark it "Snowmen only" then they can stay out all winter long. I think I might put that snowman on the car dashboard though....he does make me smile.

Louise, I like your collection of snowmen. You could leave then out thru winter. I'll put all my indoor things away after Christmas but I do leave things on the porch longer. Blessings to you, stay warm. xoxo, Susie

Hi Susie.....oh yes, I will leave the snowmen out...they seem to cheer things up around here. My Christmas tree stays up all through February....decorated in red for Valentine' the snowmen can stay too.

I really enjoyed your snowman crew - what a fun bunch of fellows to brighten the winter days and nights. I also enjoyed reading the comments. Isn't it fun to notice what we end up "collecting," especially when we don't start out to do that? And I agree with everyone else - snowman on the dash! Happy holidays, everyone...

Hi Evelyn....was just thinking...I have a collection of angels too...maybe they should be my next post. Yeah, we collect things never thinking...they have become a collection. Snowman on the dash this week!!! lol

You know I love your snowman decorations! Sorry you had to buy your own engagement ring, but here you are so many years later, so it all worked out :D
