Christmas Snowmen


I don't have a lot of pretty Christmas decorations sitting around in my house. I've really enjoyed seeing some that have been posted on these blogs. To begin with, if I had my choice of anything to put out, I wouldn't know where to put them. I've tried making things but I'm not much of an artist. These little guys are made from gourds; I do think the smaller one is cute. Their caps are made from the ribbed tops of socks and the scarves are just pieces of homespun fabric, snipped at the ends and tied around their necks. I have also made snowmen from flour/salt dough, but again, my sculpting isn't that great. The two larger snowmen are bought, wooden ones. I don't know that these are exactly meant for Christmas, for we hardly ever have a white Christmas, but they always come out at that time of year, and stay out a while longer, as does my Carole Towne houses and shops. So, with such a few things of my own, I'll look at your place for enjoyment.
This is a nice place to see gourd art: www.slatelady.com/gourd-crafts.html for whimsical pieces and there are lots of other sites for more decorative pieces; just "google " for them. I would like to grow some gourds next summer just to see what I could do with them.

  2. No white Christmas here either, but I have had my share of those and am enjoying our beautiful Texas weather.
    I think the little snowmen are adorable - love their little hats.
    Have a blessed Christmas.
