Snowmen collection

Just not in the holiday mood yet, busy this week moving my parents into a condo 6 miles away.  Thought some of you might like to see my snowman collection and how I displayed it last year.  The way I am feeling, I am not sure I will be dragging out so many holiday things this year!  I hope I get some inspiration soon!

This year I decided to display my snowmen in mass. I really like the impact of all of them lined up on the mantel. At first I just lined them up and then thought something else was needed, a swag or something. Then I realized that every snowman has to have snow, so I added fluffly stuff underneath and put some LED lights under the snow. I still need to put up the snowman stockings along the mantle, but need some of those nifty clear hooks that you can remove later.

Normally I would display my snowmen all around the house, but this is fun for a change.


  1. Oh they are so cute. They make a much bigger impact en masse. Looks very fun and festive.

  2. I love snowmen, but when they are collected, they are amazing. What a great idea! I am a (retired) RN. Until I became engulfed by writing, I worked as a chemotherapy nurse in my husband's office. It's lovely to meet you!
