Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend. It has turned a little colder here in South Carolina which makes it seems a little more like Christmas. I've just about finished up my shopping, but I haven't wrapped a single gift yet. Guess I'll tackle that tomorrow.
I realized that I had not shown my snowman collection to you yet. I have been collecting them for about 15 years.
Most of them are displayed in the cupboard in the dining room along with these cute dessert plates and mugs. In this photo you can also see the ceiling in this room. Once I had a friend ask me, "What kind of ceiling is that?" It is a very old ceiling that has been in this house ever since Leo was a young boy. For those who are new to our blog, we moved into the house that he grew up in. His parents lived here, and so did his grandfather.
Here you can see more of the cupboard. A little greenery will be added when it is closer to Christmas Eve.
This round roly-poly one is one of my favorites.
This girl snowman is as cute as can be.
And so is this guy.
Here are three vintage looking ones that I picked up for almost nothing at the auction.
Here is a new one along with a bottle brush tree that I added this year. I probably need to work on the "snow and ice" in the display. Not really pleased with how it looks. I think I'll try some rock salt. Do any of you have suggestions for something that looks more realistic?
This one is hanging out in my corner cabinet. I suppose that I collect snowmen because we rarely see snow in South Carolina, and when we do get snow, we get REAL excited.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my snowmen today. Next week I'll be posting some recipes of things that are a part of our family's Christmas celebrations.
Do you also have some of your snowmen in your yard?

Sweet little collection you have there! The roly poly reminds me of Frosty 😉
What a fantastic snowman collection! I have a Santa collection, but am always drawn to snowmen during the holiday season. Happy Holidays!
Love your snowmen-snowmen always bring a smile to my face.And I like that you can leave them out till spring if you want.
You have so many cute snowmen! I've been trying to catch up on all the blog posts I missed recently, I'm glad I didn't miss this one.
Your ceiling made me smile. As a child, we had a very similar style ceiling.

What sweet snowmen! I love how you have them displayed!
I love your snowman collection!
The snowmen display is very pretty and makes a lovely presentation on the cupboard. The snowmen china really compliments the snowmen dolls. Love the entire house and am excited about coming down Christmas Eve...... Jean

Love your snowmen! We can make our own here, but I always enjoy seeing snowmen! I was just checking some out at JoAnn Fabrics the other day! 60% off right now, it's all so tempting! There is some snow offered that is really fine almost powdery, maybe some of that sprinkled on top will add just what you want! I like the tinsel laced in there..sometimes I sprinkle other tiny ornaments or miniature pinecones in mine. The snowman in that dish next to the bottle brush tree is exactly like my pumpkin guys I had at Halloween. Same funny skinny legs! Love it! I think he's my favorite!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
Love the snowmen! I collect them too, my husband thinks I have too many... NEVER too many!!!
Your snowmen are just adorable against all the festive dishes. I also swoon over the cabinet they are in. Just love it. Your bottle brush is the first I have seen this season done in 3 colors. I think most are using Epsom salts as there icy looking snow. Give it a try. We has snow again yesterday so that makes it feel more like Christmas.
You have a great collection of snowmen. I love the roly-poly one and the girl. I really like your snowmen dishes too.
Have a wonderful Christmas

You have one awesome collection...I have that same girl one, but I need to get her out.
What a wonderful collection you have, and so beautifully displayed! My friend decorates with all snowmen and it is gorgeous, too. Happy holidays!
I love your snowman collection too! Snowmen are definitely my favorites and you have some great ones!
What a great collection, Jane! I notice most of them are fabric and I love that...so cute! I'm looking forward to your recipes!
Your cupboard is gorgeous and your snowmen look pretty happy perched there!
I love your snowman collection! That's a great collection for all winter instead of just the holidays. Thanks for sharing it Jane.
I love snowmen.I had a collection and I donated them to our City Hall here in my little town of 490, so we coulod decorate for the kids to have a place to see Santa. So, I still get to enjoy them. Yours are darling. Richard from My old Historic House.
