Winter Hater, Snowman Lover

I can state with absolute certainty that I hate winter! I don’t like the cold, brisk air, I don’t like the long hours of darkness and I don’t like the snow. I don’t like it that my hands, feet and nose are always freezing. I don’t like all the extra laundry there is from all the layers that I wear. I don’t like driving in snow and I definitely don’t like shoveling snow.

Now that I am done with that rant I would like to say that I adore snowmen. Even after I take down my Christmas decorations I leave my snowmen up until Spring. There is something about them that just makes me smile.

These are a few of the many that I have around my house.

I love this fabric and wood wall hanging that was a gift from my in-laws.

This is my absolute favorite. It is a foam napkin holder made by my son when he was in kindergarten. I use it to hold Christmas cards.

Now that I have shown you some of my personal snowmen, here are some that I found on Artfire.

The snowman on the beach is my favorite. Too cute!

I never thought I'd say this, since I'm a North Coast Ohioan (Cleveland) now in Tennessee, but... I miss snow. I don't miss 5 months of it, but I miss it.
