More Frostys

This is my 3rd post in 3 days.  Are you shocked?  I am!

Anyway, on with the snowmen.  Yep, they’re everywhere.

Moving into the kitchen…  I love my little Charlie Brown tree.

I posted last year that mantles are always hard for me.   This year was no exception. I’m open to suggestions.

298-1Don’t worry…those stockings will be spaced evenly.   Mr CnW worries about them catching on fire (from the gas fireplace that hasn’t even been turned on yet!) 

300 I bought that frame when we moved in.  It was a brown mirror.  It never worked because all it reflected was the fan because the mantle is so high.   We took the mirror out but the brown frame just blended into the rock.   So…in the nicest voice I could muster, I asked Mr CnW to whitewash it for me.   Gotta love that guy!

This next little corner is a favorite of mine.

I know I said that this was an all snowman year, so if you see any Santas, Angels or Gingerbread men, it’s because Janet made them for me.   I needed to have her presence with me this year.  She’s still in the hospital and is recovering slowly.   She is in my thoughts daily and her artistry always inspires me.   She’s a very special friend.

This is a coat rack that I picked up in an antique store nearby.

And, finally, (for today anyway) this is the landing on the stairway headed up to my nest.

These pictures were taken at an odd angle because I literally had to lay down on the stairs.   Don’t you wish you could have been here to see that?  NOT!

Tomorrow I’ll show you the guest bedrooms.

Delightful. I'd love to walk through your home enjoying each and every decoration. Have always enjoyed your Christmas decor.

Karen said...

You certainly have lots of snowmen to use for holiday decorating. I am jealous! I used to buy or make snowmen things for a friend who likes them so much. But I made very little for myself in that line. Looking forward to your next post.

You have waaaaaay more decor than I do....I love every bit of yours more so than my own! Envy here! Funny you mentioned Charlie Brown Christmas tree...they had some called just that at the Hobby Lobby with one single red bulb. Yours is way better of course! Oh..that sled..love the shape! I have so much I could comment on because each item is uniquely wonderful. Best wishes for Janet.

Snowmen are the happiest things and I'm very partial to them.

Oh, I really enjoyed touring your home and seeing all your wonderful decorations. I would leave them out all winter. Just too cute to put away after Christmas.
Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you and yours a Blessed Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.
