The Child Inside Us All When It Snows......A Snowman Vignette

Who still gets excited when you see the snow falling outside your window?  Somewhere beneath all the concerns of shoveling, driving and getting to a destination safely when the snow is falling, there is also that bit of excitement and glee that bubbles to the surface and the inner child in us all dances with joy.  Perhaps all of the thrill comes from childhood days of having a snow day from school and having the opportunity to run outside after breakfast to build the biggest snowman in the neighborhood?  Wouldn't hours fly by before you realize your mittens no longer kept your fingers warm and your cheeks and nose were so cold that they no longer had any feeling?  Before returning home, could you stand back and admire the huge balls of snow that turned into smiling works of art?

The best that I can do to help us relive those wonderful memories is to share with you the snowman vignette that nostalgically warms my heart and brings back images of days gone by.  These adorable snowmen plates and covered hot cocoa mugs found by my sweet sister makes for a perfect snack time for children and adults alike.   So come on in from the cold and grab a mug of hot chocolate and some buttery snowball cookies.  This merry snowman snack set is guaranteed to melt away winter blues and renew the youthful spirit in all of us.

  3. Thank you Liz. Tonight is still bitterly cold with wind chill of -25F, but tomorrow it will be better. I think my next tablescape should be tropical, Caribbean-style one! Something that would require an 80F setting. Stay warm!

    1. They stole my heart too. The shakers are actually hot chocolate mugs with covers. I will eventually make a snowman tablescape some day. Thanks for the comment, Bev. Stay warm.

  6. How adorable! I just love your snowman plates and the whole vignette! I don't know how you survive those temps, in the South 40 degrees is considered freezing, and we've had 20s this week with snow in the forecast tomorrow, perfect weather for snowmen!!

    1. Hi Jenna, It is a bit of a challenge to deal with the bitter cold temperatures. Winter has not been too bad this year in Wisconsin, at least where we live. There has been less days with snow and bitter cold temperatures. When it is bad, I am so glad to have my blog to stay busy and in touch. Stay cozy warm.

    1. Cathy,
      We had wind chill temperatures of -25F. That was too cold for me, but it is still hot soup weather and I have been making plenty of that too. I cannot complain. My heart goes out to those in the East with the blizzard and two feet of snow. I hope they all remain safe. All the best to you in Texas.

    1. Enjoy every minute of your stay in Florida, Doreen. You probably missed out on a huge storm which is hitting the east coast. My prayers are with everyone struggling to get safely to their destinations. Thank God I love to eat some hot and hearty soups. I have been making plenty of it lately. Can't wait to hear more of your adventures in Florida. Hugs to you.....Marsha
