        "When It Snows...
              The Earth Whispers."
I love collecting snowmen!
My dear friend and college roomate, Judy, made this darling quartet of snowmen for me several years ago.
I enjoy displaying it every winter.
I added a few extra soft flannel snowmen that I made.
The musically gifted snowman was a delightful Craft Faire purchase.
From My Home To Yours.....
"Snowmen fall from heaven...
"Kindness is like snow...
It beautifies everything it covers."
"When it snows you have two choices:
Shovel or make snow angels."

Did You Know?
***All snowflakes have six sides.
***The largest snowflakes ever recorded fell in the state of Montana.
 The snowflakes were 15 inches in diameter.
***The snow capital of the USA is Stampede Pass in Washington State.
 Each year the average snow fall is 430 inches.
***The average snowflake falls at a speed of 3.1 mph.
***Billions of snowflakes fall in one short snowstorm.
***Eskimos have 52 words for snow.

Thank you for your visits and kind comments this past year.
I am grateful for your each one of you.
You have blessed me immeasurably!

New follower. Love your snowmen...I too collect them. Love my little snowpeople. Love your blog!!! :)

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

We are so alike. I love snowmen too and have tons of them all over the house. I did not know all of that snow trivia. My sister lives in WA but I never knew the most snow falls up there but I guess that makes sense with all the rain they get. Happy New Year!

NanaDiana said...

Can you imagine 15" snowflakes???? I love your snowmen. They are all so cute. I have a few but haven't really collected them.

What interesting facts- I did not know ANY of them! I hope you have a blessed Christmas week- xo Diana

Hi Carolynn, I loved all the facts about snow. I learned something! I love snowmen so much too. We were so happy to have a day of snow where there was enough for Mary to make a snowman!

Denise said...

Since I'm a Southern CA.girl, I can't enjoy the snow unless I take a trip to the Mountains.Since I love the Mountains too,I look forward to any trip I can get.Poor Me though, My hubby doesn't feel the same.All you girls are fortunate to know Christmas in the snow. Some day maybe for Me :)

Oh my sweet friend I love your cozy cottage! The quotes and interesting facts were both wonderful and fun! I too have a collection of snowmen. Although last year I gave an entire large tote full of them to my newly married son and dil. Snow makes the world so beautiful and what a welcoming quench for our dear earth. It will make Spring so much more lovely! You are one of my newly counted blessings for 2012! Have a wonderful New Year.

I love you very much sweetie!!! xoxo Paula

The Rustic Victorian said...

Merry Christmas Dear Miz Caroline!
I have missed you at flickr. How nice to have snow to watch, it can be dreamy and magical. As long as I don't have to drive in it! The older I get the less I like to drive in bad weather. I imagine you are used to it though.
Wonderful post!
Love and southern hugs!
It has been very chilly here, but no snow yet.
