snow .....

The big storm left us with only 5-6" of snow but the wind blew it into big drifts - other locations got more - highways were closed - lots of snow removal has been happening - more snow is on the way.

 I have a collection of snow people that I usually put out for December and January but this year they're all in storage.  Earlier this month the local thrift store displayed these little guys - of course I had to have them and would you believe the sum total of all this loveliness was $5?  The little guy at the front is so sweet with his dangly legs.  Santa is a hook but we're not allowed to put anything on the walls here -  next year he won't be laying on a shelf I assure you.  ^^



in the meadow we can build a snowman ....

Nothing allowed on your walls! how boring that must be for you - I love splashes of color on my walls. Your little decorations look lovely - the snow sounds like it will take a couple days to clear out

the great thing with xmas ornaments is, there's always next year to get them out again ^^

A great buy and they all look wonderful in your display. I often go on the look out to the charity shops for Christmas ornaments. We haven't had any snow so far this Winter and I hope it stays that way! Take care.

Have a Happy New Year.

What a great find, Kate! I love the dangly leg guy, too! Got a similar one for Christmas (but not at your great bargain price!!) and he is sitting here in my kitchen :)

Hope 2017 brings you and your family every happiness--here's to another creative year!

These are great finds, Kate. It's just a pity that you are not allowed to pin anything onto the walls.
