So I got out my snowman collection and I found space to display 60 of the frosty little guys. Every year when I put them out my sarcastic oldest son whines, "Can you make them stop looking at me? Their beady little eyes follow me. Make them stop!" But they never do - LOL! I am so happy that my old stuff has found space in my new home.
This is the little thrift shop table I rescued and painted yellow. I figure there are about 35 snowmen on this table alone.
All of these guys are old Hallmark ornaments from the Mitford Series. Do you remember the books by Jan Karon? I loved them and read every one, several times.
And this shelf has assorted Hallmark ornaments and other cute guys I've gotten over the years. I particularly like the ones with thimbles on their heads.
The bookcase worked up nicely. I was able to use several large snowmen I didn't think I'd have space for.
This shelf is my favorite. It has my Lizzie Kate Winter Alphabet and I was able to use this turquoise cake stand to display my Jim Shore snowmen. I love when things come together. I bought the cake stand months ago and was attracted by the color and that the top is a stylized square instead of round. At the time I told myself I didn't need another cake stand (and I don't) but I couldn't resist, and now I'm glad I didn't.
Now the snowman with the measuring cups on his head, who has wooden spoons for arms is my youngest son's favorite. He (the snowman, not my son) was another purchase from Hallmark back when they had so many cute seasonal decorations.
These guys are on the shelves of my TV cabinet. My collection of disembodied snowman, I didn't realize how many I had like this till I grouped them together.
I'm very happy with this seasonal display. Right now it is about 4 degrees outside, wind chills about 20 below - perfect for snowmen but I can't wait for it to warm up. The forecast says 28 degrees tomorrow... break out the shorts - LOL! Actually I'm sure I will see folks in shorts by the weekend. It suppose to be 50 degrees -- ahhh... my kinda winter weather.
Oh, this last picture gives you some idea of where I hung my Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart. It is the perfect spot as I can see it from my stitching chair and it makes me smile.
Hope you are staying warm... I'm turning my space heater up to the broil setting!
