Snowmen!

This has been the week of Snowmen. I said earlier that I am drawn to Santa figures but lately I have been drawn to Snowmen. Look what I won! Heather from Hopscotch and Hydrangeas had a giveaway and I won! I love these green earrings and she surprised me with this Snowman!
From her blog you can get to her etsy site and see all the pretty earrings. Thanks Heather! I love them!
I went to Gordman's this past weekend and saw this snowman picture. It looks so old and I love the glitter all over it. I hung it in the guest bathroom and put my Christmas guest towel under it because I thought the trees were very similar.
They also had one of just the tree without the snowman. It was cute too but for some reason I went with the snowman. The best part was that all the Christmas decor was 30% off!

I've always been drawn to the snowmen! Maybe it's because living down here we don't ever have any snow!!

Wendy said...

I've always loved snowmen in the past and still decorate with them, but for some odd reason I have started liking gingerbread men. I love the picture in your bathroom.

And I just have to say... I've only been reading your blog for a short time , but I've come to learn that you are LUCKY! You have won so many giveaways in such a short period of time. Congrats! Wish some of your luck would rub off on me.

Congrats on the win! I love the snowman picture in all it's glitter!

My Christmas tree is up finally.

Cute! I love snowmen. They are my "theme" at Christmas. Probably because I'm in Texas where we don't get enough snow to make a real snowman.

duchess said...

I'm finding more & more snowmen around my house, too. They're so cute.

Chris said...

I am in LOVE with that snowman picture. It's perfect. The great thing about snowman decor is that you can keep it up past Christmas. It's still wintery!

the undomesticated wife said...

Oooo!!!! I LOVE that picture! Is Gordman a store? Do they have a website?

Congrats on your win!

Ali said...

I like snowmen because they are a symbol of Winter and the fun that we have. I had Santas all over the house for a while and then one day when my son was 4 he asked if Santa was Jesus since we had so many around.... I decided to go to a Santa free house the next year. Nothing like a 4 yr old to set someone straight.

Amanda said...

We LOVE snowman here at my house!!! As I sit...it is piuring snow, another 2" expected today!

Andrea @ Big Creek Cottage said...

It's Always Something Around Here said...

I love Snowmen and Santas. I displayed mine differently this year by grouping them together. I think I like it better LOL.

Your home is gorgeous! You have such a knack for decorating.

Kristi said...

Girl, I am with you on the snowmen. They are so much fun. I even have snowman dishes that we pull out at Christmas time and use until Valentine's day.

love the snowman, especially the framed one... so cute!

Laurel MacD said...

Love your picture - so cute. I get 90% of my christmas decor AFTER Christmas. I've done it so long now, it pains me to buy it before!

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

There is something so sweet about a snowman. There is a house that I drive by often that has a snowman out front. He is this one big lump - not the typical three round ball thing. He is the cutest little guy and everytime I see him I just say "Awww".

Thanks for your sweet comments about my garland. I got the candy canes at this little gift/craft shop in my hometown called "Something Special". I think they are one of my favorite purchases this holiday.

ka1t_lyn said...

I love snowmen-- even more than Santas! Partially because they can stay out in January if they aren't Christmas themed. Plus, they're cute! I love that picture, it's great :)

Cali Girl said...

I have made little snowmen ornaments for years but for some reason I have never decorated with them until this year. My step-mom gave me just a couple of snowman things and I bought a few things to go with them. Now my piano is so cute dressed up with all my snowmen (and women)!

Susie Harris said...

Snowmen are so sweet! Your house looks all ready for santa. Very pretty!!!
