Next up is my entry way, and these jolly snowmen are the first thing you see when you enter my house. Some are ornaments... the large wooden one in the center was made for me years ago by my sister in law Dianne, and the majority of them are reproductions of snowmen Christmas decorations from years gone by (as are the bottle brush trees, which I love). I am hoping to add to this collection each year.
This large pear-shaped guy is by far my favorite. How can you look at him and not be happy? From the tip of his polka dot party hat, to his little tree and blue party coat with it's puff buttons, he just makes me smile :)
This more traditional snowman with his real twig broomstick and his humorous hat (held above him by a spring) stands proudly on a pedestal and looks at the world with his eyes and mouth made of - what else? - coal.
I adore this very old fashioned Mrs. and Mr. Snowman couple made out of pipe cleaners! Someone took a lot of time and care to add all the detail to them - their hats and bows and glitter, their little coal button eyes & mouths and her buttons, their scarves, foliage, and his candy cane and her pearl. So darling, I just love them :)
This view is kind of from an odd angle, but I wanted you to see all my sweet snow flakes hanging on the ceiling!
My "MOD" version of a Christmas tree: most of my coffee table books stacked with a poinsettia plant at the top! The Apartment Therapy blog would be oh so proud ;) Just please forgive my awful cement floor - aargh.........
I loved how this photo turned out, so I'm going to close with it for today. I hope you are all taking time to ENJOY your holiday preparations and the season itself. More of my pics coming soon - and some other fun things too :)
