Snowmen in January! Brrrrrr

As I post this, my phone says it's 3 degrees outside. Three. Degrees. Ahhh!   
 
I thought it would be fitting to show my vintage snowman collection today.
 
  I put them all on one shelf in the living room this time.
 
The tall one with the red buttons was made by Elizabeth.
 
 The one on the right needed some help, so he got a jar of candy canes and a new hat!
 
You got 6 "Cocoanut" covered ice cream balls, plus 6 candles, and 6 doilies in this box!
 
 I like using vintage cards in all of my holiday displays.
 
 The one on the right is a candy container.
 
 On top, one of the older blow molds that I have.
 
 My very first Christmas corsage (with the spun cotton snowman), is tucked into a candy container.
 

 The snowman on the top left was my great grandmothers. I found the navy blue card (on the bottom) last summer at the flea market. I love it's style!
 I recently made the clay snowman on the right. His vintage wreath is by "Shiny Brite", and his bow is made out of my favorite old tinsel ribbon.
 
My friend, Mandy, gave me the wonderful guy on the right with the gold ribbon on his hat. He's the largest snowman that I have!
 
Oh greaaat! I see now that in the time it took me to create this post, we LOST three degrees! So now my phone says it's 0 degrees! As in...None. No degrees at all. haha
 
Oh well, warmer days are ahead, right?
Tonight is a definite "stay in and order pizza" kind of night!
Hugs to you all-
Erica :)

  2. You have a wonderful collection, Courtney! I think vintage snowmen are a lot harder to find than Santas and elves...

  5. What a great collection! I love the idea of keeping them all out for winter. I always put mine all away with the Christmas stuff. Why have I never thought of that? Next year for sure.

  12. Erica, you have the best snowman collection I have seen! So many adorable guys. Also, how fun to have a display between Christmas and Valentines to enjoy. I see a little plastic one holding a red broom that my grandmother had a set of. :)

  22. This is such a charming display which brought back memories of snowmen my mother used to put out around the holidays. I remember always wanting to light the snowmen candles, but of course that was not allowed.
