The parties are over and the Christmas decorations are packed safely in their boxes. The holidays are nothing but memories and spring break and flip flops are months away. That's where my snowman collection comes in.
First, I throw my blue and white checked snowflake tablecloth on the dining room table. Silver snowflake candles pick up the shiny silver threads in the cloth.
Then the Mitford snowmen go on the buffet
and the Mod Podge snowman candle holder my boys made years ago takes its place on the fireplace mantel.
|It seems I have a mouse infestation.|
A tin snowman stands guard next to the fireplace
while a jingle bell snowman keeps me company in the kitchen
and another snowman waits patiently to collect our wet mittens.
|Let it snow!|
You might think they are silly, but my cheerful snowmen do a surprisingly good job of helping ease the transition between the holidays and my regularly scheduled life. Their warm smiles are the best medicine I have found for keeping the winter blues at bay.
Happy winter! Hurry, spring!
