Welcoming Winter. . .

As a child, 
I listened to many of the female vocalist of the 1950's and 1960's.

Songs such as,Where Did My Snowman Go and Suzy Snowflake 
still creep into my musical mind at this time of year.

Singing these songs is one of the ways
 I Welcome Winter!

On Crooked Creektt
another way I welcome winter 
is by bringing out my Snowmen!

Once all of the Christmas decor has been put away,
our home becomes a bit stark.

With  the addition of my Snowmen 
and a few sprigs of faux evergreen,
our home becomes an indoor Winter Wonderland !

I adore this paper mache Snowman!

It appears he's been helping take down all the Christmas wreaths!

The feather Snowflake Tree 
is one I leave packed away until Christmas passes.

Many years ago,
I stopped into a Primitives Shop in the b i g city 
and found this famous Snowman's hat.

This Welcoming Winter vignette  
rests atop our Entertainment Center
in On Crooked Creektt's upper level Living Room.

"Mr. Ed" placed my rusty wire shabby chic white metal star garland
atop the heirloom farmhouse window.

I added three creamy ivory silver mercury ornaments 
around the base of the Snowman to resemble Snowballs.

On either side of this vignette are our heirloom oil lanterns,
each with a  snow dappled sprig of evergreen.

I  l o v e  s n o w!!!

"Mr. Ed" and I are anxiously awaiting 
our first measurable snowfall 
of the Season On Crooked Creektt!

For now,
I'll be content to enjoy our Snowman indoors
On Crooked Creektt!

Until next time. . .

Snowmen are some of my favorites! We are having stormy weather here in Demorest, GA (80 mi. N. of Atlanta). Wind, rain, scary weather. Hope your weather doesn't get any worse!

Well how stinkin' cute is all that, Pat?! I love the fact that you brought your snowmen out to play after the Christmas decor is put away. Those green oil lamps are especially beautiful, and that hat is just precious. Total package almost makes me wish for snow....almost! Let us know how much you get. So far, we've been lucky to dodge even the worst of the rains, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for mild winter weather (even if my daffodils are starting to come up!). Happy New Year, Pat, and thank you for your visits and comments that always warm my heart.

It always seems so sad after Christmas is put away. This is really a great idea to transition with. Hope you don't mind if I copy cat.

I like your snowmen. You take such care with the vignettes in your house--it's a pleasure to gaze upon beauty and creativity isn't it? I think you've gotten some snow by now. Send some our way!!!
