My favorite snowman.

Love this one also.   The little wood snowman I painted years ago.

Cute snowmen my children gave me and the bucket was painted and given to me by my daughter-in-law.

This snowman is greeting people as they enter my living room.

I believe these sweet little snowmen were given to me by my daughter, Deann.

The snowman on the left is made of glass the one on the right is ceramic.

A bucket full of snow people on my kitchen table. 

Cloth snowmen on my ledge above my sink, and snowflakes in my windows.

More snowflakes that are in my front windows.

White flowers in vase 2 stuffed snowmen and one metal snowman.

The snowman on the left my daughter, Kara, gave me the other two  I bought.

Cute stuffed snowmen on my coffee table.

I think my daughter, Deann, gave me this cute snowman.

This snowman is holding a towel.

Another ceramic snowman on the left that my daughter, Kara, gave me  the other two I bought.

Glass snowman candy dish and glass snowman candle holder.

Another gift from daughter, Deann,  this snowman can be tall or short.

This snowman people is one my daughter, Deann gave me for Christmas along  with others for different holidays. 

Collection of wood and stuffed snowmen.

My newest wood snowman I brought at Big Lots this year for my front porch.

This little snowman is wood and I painted it quite a few years ago.

I also painted this sled.

I made this snowflake wreath.

Metal snowmen in my front yard.

Little garden flag.

Another garden flag.

My front door wreath.

What my front windows look like from the outside.  

I hope I have not bored you with all my January decorations.   Have a wonderful  January.  Stay warm and safe.   Madeline

Chill December brings the sleet, blazing fire, and Christmas treat.
    ~Sara Coleridge~ 

A bare tree stands with roots on both ends in December.
    ~Karen  Bantawa~

When dark December glooms the day, and takes our autumn joys away; when short and scant the sun-beam throws, upon the weary waste of snow.
    ~Walter Scott~

I heard a bird sing in the dark of December, a magical thing and sweet to remember: "We are nearer to spring than we were in September."
      ~Oliver Herford~

Of all the months of the year there is not a month one-half so welcome to the young, or so full of happy associations, as the last month of the year..."All the year around: December," All the year  around a weekly journal conduced by Charles Dickens 1887 December 10th

Wishing everyone a joyous month of December.
