The Season of the Snowman

 There is a time for everything,
   and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Ecclesiastes 3:1
 

Can it be – just about the middle of January – and I’m only now packing away Christmas? 

How swiftly doth the seasons, 
They do change . . .

I usually switch out my Christmas season decor to my winter season-scenes – all done on New Year’s Day.  But, I’ve been so overwhelmed this past year, I just didn’t have the energy to do it.  Instead, I spent the season of my year’s end holiday actually relaxing – and struggled in the start-up of a new season of routine! 

However, being back to the grind in earnest this week means it is decidedly time to put the Santas away and bring out my “winter-wear” for the dining room.

 
‘Tis the Season of the SNOWMEN!

Nothing very impressive, really.  Just a few thrift store fellows I thought were cute and cost effective.  Have only enough to fill the space available. 

Here’s a chilly little lady sporting pink accessories and making a warm welcome to friends – and winter birds – where ‘ere they be . . .

She enjoys a chat with this charming SNOWGAL decked out in plenty of pink and sparkle, dangling from my “all-seasons” tree  . . .

But, of course, the star of the show in the center of the room is our impressive blown glass snow sculpture of German origin – sporting a hot pink muffler!

Seasonal Winter Pinks in a snow-scene – for me – suggests wistful thoughts of the seasonal Spring Pinks beckoning just around the corner . . .

How swiftly doth the seasons, 
They do change . . .
And, bring one HOPE! 

Sharing Seasonal Snowman Pinks this week with:

  1. Happy Pink Saturday Kathryn, All those snow folks are adorable. I usually leave my snowmen out for January too but this year I didn’t. Hope seems to be a theme for many of us right now. If yo have time stop by to read about my celebration of hope. Have a great week. Warmly, Linda

  2. I know! And, I know! Very behind our normal schedule this year. It is like spring here in the Bay Area, something new to me after a northeastern stint. It’s almost time to plant the garden again. Can it be?

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  3. Your blog is so sweet and so are those snowmen (and lady)!!
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

  4. I’m wishing for some now to accompany our colder weather….. but alas it’s not to be! Love your pretty snowmen – especially the 1st “chilly lady!”

  5. Though the weather outside is chilly, I am warmed by your adorable Snowmen. Thanks for a wonderful winter smile!

    GOD BLESS!

  6. If you enjoy your things, keep them out longer. I have a sister that loves snowmen and has a big collection. They stay out all the time.

  7. hello friend! How are you?! Yes, it is the middle of January already. I like the scripture you used- perfect! Your snowmen are adorable…kind of a fan of the first one with the pink and green!
    Blessings to you!!

  10. It all goes so fast doesn’t it? New Years was 2 weeks ago? How can that be?! Already thinking of Valentine’s Day!!

  11. Hi Kathryn,

    I started taking down my Christmas decs last Saturday (Jan. 7th), and I’m still at it! I’m about to get there, though. 🙂

    I, too, put my snowmen (and women) out after Christmas. It helps keep things a bit festive I think. Yours are awfully cute. I like the German blown glass beauty.

    Take care and have a great day!

  12. I packed everything EXCEPT my happy snowmen up before we left to go out of town. I’m slowly getting ready to take them down, but I just love their happy faces. Plus, they are winter decor. OK… not in Georgia perhaps… but everywhere else. I love yours!

  13. Don’t you think snowmen look snuggly? Of course, we can’t say they are warm and snuggly. I love snowmen.♥

    Happy Pink Saturday, Kathy.

I would love to hear from you--share your thoughts!
