Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow (and a few thrifty finds)

Since we have no snow and no promise of any.... (62 degrees), I'll just have to be satisfied enjoying my snowmen collection.  I never thought about collecting them.  But I just gathered them together and I have quite a few.

This handsome guy was a gift this week from a co-worker. He's also a cookie jar.

Here's the whole gang, corralled in this thrifty tray.
 Aren't they adorable?  The tall guy on the far left was found yesterday at my favorite consignment shop. He is heavy!  For $6.00, he was calling to me.  I passed him up once, but before I got out of the store, he yelled one more time and I gave in. 

I'll introduce the back row now.

Left to right, 1st up is Daddy Snow, next is Mom Snow, and  the 'hefty' one on the right is Grandmother Snow.  She's dressed in her kerchief.  All those little guys in the front,  that's the Snow children.  Goodness, that's a lot of kids to put through college.  Hope they win the lottery!!

Can't forget these two little sweeties!

This lovely tin came home with me too.  $4.00. Isn't it just lovely?

It's a great place to put these napkins I've had for a very long time. 

I tried using these napkins with my holly dishes, but decided I liked the solid red ones.

I bought one other thing.  It's a 9 foot garland of cranberry colored wooden beads seen here on the mantel.  It looks black in the picture.

 Whoops,  almost forgot some snowmen.

And I have a snowman on the front porch, but my camera has decided to be stubborn and won't let me upload the picture.

What do you think?  Is this a collection?
