Our Snow "Children"
Snowmen are not a common sight in SC. We rarely get snow and if we get any it's usually a dusting.
The only ones we get to see are stuffed ones that hang out in the warmth of our house and amazingly don't melt. lol
I've had the ones above for years. The guy below just came to live here a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he cute! We had company the other night and a snowball fight broke out! Really!
My hubby thought he was so cute but I didn't want to pay the price. See his price sticker?
We found him at Old Time Pottery and turned out he was half price on clearance. I still didn't want to pay the price. Then I noticed he was damaged and hubby took him to an employee. She readily said, "Let's make him $12.50." Hubby said, "That works for me!"
Paint covers a multitude of sins! Sorta like makeup, come to think of it! lol
He had a few other scrapes and bruises we fixed up. He's so happy we adopted him into our family!
I put out more Snowmen in the kitchen after Christmas.
Are you still with me... you may need a cup of coffee from the Keurig about now! lol
These little guys are ornaments with their face painted and a child's sock for a hat.
I have two cookie jar snowmen. No cookies but their still cuties!
Our grand daughter, who is three, was over yesterday and she kept coming to tell me when she found another snowman.
I painted this guy many years ago and hung him on the back door (to the garage). A lot of
people come in through the garage so I always have something on the door to greet them.
That's all for today. Believe it or not I have more in the dining room and outside at the entrance of the house to show. I'll same them for another time!
I hope you're having a great week and thanks for stopping by!
