Snow friends

I have a corner curio cabinet that sits in my upstairs hallway. The top half held a few birds items that I had collected over the years as well as some eggs. The bottom half was filled with snowmen. The other day when I was doing some cleaning out I decided I really don't care much for the bird stuff any more. I took all the birds and eggs out of the cabinet, cleaned up the shelves and rearranged the snowmen. Now the entire cabinet is my snow friend cabinet

The top half

And the bottom half



There's still a few more that have to go in here but they are currently out decorating other parts of the house..

That's quite a collection of smiling faces! Very needed at times --- please give yourself a hug for me.

I love it! I have maybe this many snowmen, but don't see any of mine here. At Easter you can fill it with rabbits and eggs!

Oh...this is a great! Jolly & festive & colorful!

Hootin' Anni said...

Great = treat

Kate said...

Fabulous collection of snowmen, Ann!!

Sandra said...

wow, I knew you collected snowmen but not how many you have. what did you do with the birds/eggs? are they going to be sold? donated? fill another cabinet? details please.. also photos of them would be nice.. I am shocked Ginny did not ask these questions.

Oh those snowmen are so darn cute What a great collection. Looks like a lot of fun. Have a super nice day Ann.

Whoa - that's a boatload of snowmen but - they are delightful to see. I think I would be smiling every time I passed that cabinet. (and if you get back to major crafting and selling, the sock snowmen and penguins and mousies would have to be at the top of the list - or maybe that's just me who loves them.)

How fun to have a place for them year around. Love it. Way better than birds.

Have a fabulous day and weekend, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

I used to have a bunch, but switched themes when a kid moved and took them LOL

What a delightful curio cabinet. I love your snowmen. It's quite a collection you have.

Enjoying your post.

You could always swap out the snowmen for the birds come spring. I do that quite often. Love, Andrea xoxo

I love it! Snowmen are my favorite. They are so cute.

Ann said...

Thanks and thanks for the hug too :)

Ann said...

This will actually stay snowmen all year long.

Ann said...

Thanks. I've always had a soft spot for snowmen.

Ann said...

Thanks. For a while, everyone was buying me snowmen for Christmas

Ann said...

Thanks. There's a couple I'm not real crazy about but they're snowmen so they stay a part of the collection

Ann said...

For a while everyone was buying me snowmen and then I worked at the dollar store for a couple years and every new snowman that came in they would point out to me and tell me "you should get this one".
I would love to start making the sock guys. I took some to the last craft show but I think it was just the wrong time of year for them. I need to start working on doing Christmas ones.

Ann said...

Yeah, I sort of outgrew the bird thing. I liked them for a while but not like I do the snowmen

Ann said...

Kids are good for clearing out things in our houses...lol

Ann said...

Thanks for stopping by. The cabinet used to be in my dining room and years ago I moved it up to the hallway. That was when the snowmen moved into it.

Ann said...

I actually think I'm just done with the whole bird thing. They just don't thrill me the way the snowmen do

Grace said...

Oh but Isidore isn’t really Christmas-y - Not with his hunk of cheese. But, yes, you are probably right the snow people and Percy probably say Christmas to most people. Even an elf one would fall into that category and an angel one. As much as I love Percy (and I love him a lot), it’s really Isidore who wins my heart! (Those little pink feet!)

Ida said...

Very cute. My mom puts out snowmen in January. I don't like winter so no snowmen for me.

BeadedTail said...

Change is good especially when it's a whole display case of smiling snowmen! What a delight to see!
