Welcome to my Merry and Jolly Snowman Table.
After the hustle and the bustle of the holidays, thank goodness for Merry and Jolly Snowman to help brighten our January days. I am a huge fan of snowmen! They just are so happy and fun. Did you ever wonder who started making snowmen? I guess it's a case of when you are served lemons, make lemonade! We have a ton of snow that is not going away anywhere soon. How about you? We were out of town when the storm hit, and I was so sad to not be able to watch the flakes come down. I love a good snow storm, especially if there are huge flakes.
I am posting this to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday, where the letter of the week is "M" for Merry and Jolly Snowman and to Susan's Tablescape Thursday.
I want to thank Linda at More Fun Less Laundry for the fun Snowman Star Ornament giveaway that I received right before Christmas. This little guy is even cuter in person -- he will look so perfect on my "traditional tree."
I also want to thank my sister, Purple Chocolat Home for this festive apron "giveaway" she made for me -- that's what she called it! Don't you just want to step into the apron fabric? The candy cane fabric is just so shimmery and beautiful; my picture doesn't do it justice. I needed her daughter Jessica to model it for me.
What fun things to receive right before Christmas.
This is the individual placesetting. I found the salad/dessert plates at Wal-Mart after Christmas.
I just love these HUGE napkins that I found at Target at this year's after Christmas sale.
The cookie jar is labled "Jolly Ol' Snowy" by Tracy Porter. It was a find years ago at Target.
I love the squirrel on a backside.
Inspired by Sherry's lanterns at The Charm of Home, I am showcasing my snowman bell in my red landern.
I have enjoyed making snowman donuts. So fun and easy! I am doing another post on them tomorrow. Look's like this little fellow got his buttons messed up a bit.
Thanks for dropping by my Red Couch!
