#2. These are my very favorite snow people, a gift from my son and daughter-in-law years ago.
# 4. This snow family is animated but not my favorite. Their noses are Pinochio-size.
# 5. These stuffed puffs make me smile, remind me of happy days when the kids were little.
# 6. This thrift store discovery appealed to me because they look like they're hand carved sculptures.
# 7. If you look closely you'll notice a wooden, jointed moose sitting on the bench. It was a gift from my dearest, life long, late friend Sheila, who had a summer lake home in New Hampshire where moose roamed. Looking at that guy brings back so many memories. Our last time together, her husband drove us to Moose Alley hoping to see moose. We drove for hours on a deserted highway, but there wasn't a moose to be seen. We pulled into town to go to a restaurant, and an enormous moose came out of the woods, stopped in front of the car and looked right at us. A gift, of course.
# 8. Another grouping that reminds me of when my kids were small and winter was fun.
# 9. I bought a cloth woven place mat that I think is whimsical, and I framed it. I love it!
# 10. Even Santa likes bubble baths. He's animated, kicks his legs, swishes his towel, and sings Splish-Splash I Was Taking a Bath, much to Liam's delight.
