Cold January Snowman

jeannespinesJanuary 20, 2013

Ohhh...the weather outside is frightful ...the snow is so delightful ...yup, snow flurries today, cold & Wintery after our Jan. thaw the past week or so. But, I found this guy for 70% at a specialty store so he came home with me to join the 'Snow families' on the porch. Since the Old World Santa got put away after Christmas, this tall fella' can stay out til March!

I switched out a shorter tree for this tall one from the floor of the porch & spruced up his arm w/a bit of pinery:

So he's a jolly fellow in this old window vignette on the porch table:

The birds are happy outside today ...very cold but the Sparrows are keeping warm flocking to our Christmas tree that we moved outdoors a few weeks ago.

Happy January! TFLookin'! Jeanne S.

Jeanne, love your new snowie! He's looks greast standing there on the window with the trees. Such a neat vignette. The little sparrows do look like they are enjoying the Christmas tree. How nice of you to share it with them for the winter.

I'm so glad you posted this. I had planned on doing something this weekend but instead I blew my knee out again so I sat around all weekend.

Great Snowman find Jeanne..he makes a nice Winter
Vignette with the trees.
Beautiful pics of the birds in the Christmas tree.
I like recycling my tree outside too..we usually add some goodies to it for the birds and squirrels. It's fun to watch them and see the tree 'continue on' till the Spring.

Punk...sorry to hear about your knee..Take care and hope it gets better soon..Seems many of us are 'falling apart' in one way or other!! lol

Jeanne, Your new snowman looks right at home among the trees in your vignette.
The sparrows don't seem to mind the cold at all.
It's amazing how some birds can withstand any weather.
Gee Punk, sorry about your knee, isn't this the third time you injured it?

That picture of the birds on your Christmas tree is great! You take such good pictures. Love your new snowman, but I especially love how you used the old window as a tray! You are very creative. TFS.

Punk, so sorry about your knee. That is really bad news for a busy gal like you. Hope it's better real soon.

He's adorable, Jeanne! Perfect for Winter without looking like leftover Christmas! BTW, the snowy window you have him standing on is a great idea!
