Wishing For Snow!


It's COLD and very, very foggy today!  Don't the snowmen on the studio
porch look comfy in the chilly weather?


I made these many years ago for a store window display.....now I'm thinking of maybe making a pattern for them!  I'd kind of forgotten about them... now I've sort of fallen in love with them again!
I'll never forget the day I drove with them from my house to the shop.  I'd strapped them into seatbelts so they wouldn't tip over......You'll never believe some of the looks we got at stop signs!!!


Hoar frost on the crabapples of the little tree at the front of the studio.  Isn't nature amazing??
Have a frosty weekend!!

Well I won't be having a white Christmas this year but since we are moving from sunny So Cal to Utah the day after Christmas I will probably have lots of them in my future. I hope you get the snow you crave. It is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your pictures!

I love these snowmen and I love that they are a little bit lumpy - I try to make some of my snowmen lumpy because face it, in real life we rarely have a nice, smooth snowman!

Hi "Life With Gert"! I sure wish we'd get more snow! It's been such a dry December (and windy), I was thinking just this morning that we're going to have to drag out some hoses and water the trees and bushes! Dry winters like this put so much stress on them. WE NEED SNOW!!!....preferrably with some rain first. Hope you had a nice Christmas, but the lights look so much better when they're glowing up through snow!! xo
