So Many Snowmen

To me, winter brings back wonderful memories of playing in the snow, ice skating on the pond and of course, building the perfect snowman. There is something about the happy smile, the carrot nose and the hat and scarf, that bring cheer to a cold winters day. When my Christmas decorations go away, my snowman come out and stay on display, through February. They bring touches of color and fun as the snow falls outside.

This snowman sits on the bakers rack in my kitchen and looks warm and cozy with his striped scarf.

A snowman candle with a pretty touch of sparkly red, sits in my kitchen. Two signs; both rustic and cheerful hang in unexpected places.

A mirror in my foyer stairway, gets a cute little glass snowman and two pretty snowflakes. You have seen this mirror with other holiday decorations and it is one of my favorite pieces to decorate. Sweet, yet simple.

Twigs for arms, add a special touch to this cute piece of folk art.

This rotund, simple snowman is a printable, from Pinterest, I easily added it to this frame in my laundry room. Again, the red scarf is the perfect touch of color on a gloomy day.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I love your snowmen!!! They made winter a little happier! : ) I can't wait for some real snow.

  2. Cute! I never met a snowman I didn't like.

  3. They're all so cute, but that first one, especially, is just darling! I like snowmen too, but they're more exciting in December than in March when they just won't go away. lol

  4. The snowman picture is my favourite. My daughter has six kids and has an army of snowmen in her yard right now!

  5. You have some really cute snowmen. My favorite is the first one with that cute smile!

  6. My mother, sister and I all do the very same thing. Its so sad putting away Christmas so its nice to leave out the cheery fun snowmen who can't melt, even inside.
    love your collection :)

  7. These little guys are so cute, I can see why you leave them out for the winter! The colors alone make me smile!


  8. Love decorating with snowmen too:). Love the printed one eithe red scarf. Enjoy your evening. Hugs

  9. What a fun snowman collection! They are so jolly and perfect winter decor:) It's nice to leave a little sparkle and fun up for just a little longer.. helps get us through the dark month of January!

  10. I collect and then keep some snowmen out too for January and perhaps Feb as well!

  11. Cute snowmen, Vicki. I used to leave mine out till spring but now I take them down with the Christmas decor. Thinking about spring way to early!

  13. Found you through Jennifer Rizzo, Love the Snowmen, especially the printable.

  14. Cute collection of snowmen Vicki. I adore the red scarves. I too have such fond memories of playing in the snow as a child. All except for how I'd stay out so long that my hands and feet were so frozen because I stayed out too long. I remember crying as mom ran them under warm water. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  15. I like the last one with the twigs. I found you via Share Your Cup. I live in Florida now and miss playing in snow.

  16. Saw you at Serenity Now.

    My favorite is the last one that is a printable...he's the fattest. :)

  17. So cute! I collect snowmen and use a few after the holidays. I agree, they add something special to the dreary months of winter.

  18. Love your sweet snowmen. We are having springlike weather, but that is getting ready to change I'm afraid and there may be some real snowmen outside.

  19. Snowmen in January are a wonderful thing and all of yours are so absolutely incredibly adorable! Have a great weekend. Tammy

  20. I have collected a lot of snowmen. We used to build snow "ladies" in our yard after a big snow.

  21. Snowmen are my favorites! There is enough snow to go out and build one right now.
