I am participating in Marty's at A Stroll Thru Life's Tabletop Tuesday and Linda at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.
It is so cold here in the South! I don't think we made it out of the 40's here today. The wind chill made it even worse. I know most of you would think it was a heat wave, however it is COLD to us!
I love snowmen and especially Mary Engelbreit snowmen! Jennifer found this cutie for me right before Christmas last year at Michael's. He was marked half off and was only $8. When she brought him home to me I was so excited. He stands about 12 inches high. I have him in my kitchen this year with glittery holly I bought after Christmas for a $1. I love a thrifty find!
This is an end table in our family room with more snowmen and a little gingerbread girl. The tea set I have had for several years. The little cups are trimmed in peppermint stripes.
The snowmen figurines are by Penny McAllister. They each have so much personality. They look vintage. I have had the large one for several years and I purchased the smaller ones this year at a Christmas shop in Birmingham.
Look at those little pink shoes, round belly and bright cheeks!
This gingerbread girl is decked out in her peppermint candy and bows. The little box opens up and each one has a surprise. This one had a little piece of "peppermint candy" inside.
The tinsel around her base reminds me of my grandmother's silver tinsel tree from when I was a little girl. It's funny how little things can bring back memories.
After all isn't that part of the magic of Christmas.
Thanks for visiting and God Bless,
