~ Snowmen and the Hutch ~

Each year I bring the snowmen out it's like meeting up with old friends. Bringing up old memories of when and where I bought them. Then the fun begins of where I'm going to place them. The old kitchen cupboard a gift from Mr. P. many years ago is always fun to decorate for the seasons.
This year these guys took center stage on top. The lantern was a fun addition a few years, ago. The lop sided top gives it a bit more character.



I love the patina of old dough bowls, I've collected a few over the years, I find them to be great decorating tools. Last fall this bowl  held apples, now a few pine cones and iced bells. This says winter to me, if I get a tad lazy I could leave it out all Winter.

The small tree has been around for a very long time. I didn't get around to spraying the vase black before the weather changed, it's on the list of things to do when the weather warms back up.
A small tinsel wreath to flow with the silver dish.


Thank you for coming by I hope to see you again soon.

I agree - All Winter!. Every thing is very pretty. I also like the old wooden bowls - I have 2 I have not used in a while.

Your snowmen are adorable displayed on your cupboard! I like your idea of placing some of your snowmen inside the lantern. The greenery and the bells in the dough bowl is a nice touch!

Hi Lynne!

I have read back on your last 4-5 posts (been under the weather) and see that you really like snowmen. I do too!

Your house is looking so full of Christmas spirit and I would love to visit and have cocoa with you in your kitchen!
