Frosty the Snowman


What is cuter than a snowman? Round and cute with a button nose. I love them and have been collecting them for years. Actually I am done collecting I think as I have too many. You know people find out you collect something and then bam you have a very large collection.
Here are a few of my favorites.


They fill my den bookshelves.




But with all collections you have your favorites. This one is fun and sparkly so I give him a place all his own.


But I think the sweetest one of all is this little guy by House of Hatten. The designer retired years ago so you can't get them any longer or at least new ones. Bummer because they were made so well and I loved her style.

Been cleaning and spiffing all day as some blogger friends are coming by tomorrow for a day of shopping, lunch and visiting so you know you have to get the house ready. So gals just remember, I live with four kids, two dogs and two cats in a house well lived in. I can't wait for tomorrow. Happy weekend everyone!!

Hi Elaine. I have a lot of snowmen too. I love them. Like you said, soft, fluffy, and just so lovable! I am coming tomorrow!! I emailed you to see if you could email me your phone number so I could put it in my phone before I head out. My house is also very well lived in. That's my favorite kind!!!
Can't wait to share some time with you ladies again!!!!!! See you bout 11:00, right?

I adore your snowmen! I save all of my snowmen and put them out in January for my winter decorations. We don't get snow here so I like to have them out, just in case this is the year we actually get snow.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I LOVE your collection, they are all so cute and I wish I could come find where you live and steal them all for my collection =P
I have a small snowman collection, I can't help but buy every snowman I see when I am at Goodwill or yard sales. one of my recent posts I put up a picture of my snowman collection, I have some more I didn't have out with that picture, I wish I could find some ones like yours to add to my collection!

You have a fabulous collection of snowmen. I have a collection of them, too, but not nearly as extensive as yours. I did buy a new snowman this year! Couldn't help myself-you know what I mean!
