Snowpeople and baking

When I was putting away all of my Christmas decorations I decided to leave my snowpeople collection out for the month of January.
As you can see, I have quite a few snow people. There is even another snow-couple that was already packed up when I decided to display these, as well as two snowman candles. I didn't intentionally try to have a collection. It all started with the four little guys up front and the one with the plaid scarf. There was a vendor at a local Christmas craft fair that made these snowmen and I would buy just one each year. That wood-worker stopped selling them and I just started finding others that I liked. 
This year my son gave me this cute little couple.
It is supposed to be a tree ornament, but it is much too heavy to hang on our real tree and is the perfect size to blend in with my other snow-people. I love it.

I know that many of you are dealing with quite a bad snowstorm today. We are lucky here on Long Island that it is passing south of us. Not that I wouldn't enjoy a snow day off from school, but I really don't want to have to shovel. Hubby did get our snow-blower fixed last week though as the threat of a storm was there. It stopped working at the end of last winter. I hope everyone stays safe, warm and dry.

It is very cold here today though and that prompted me to make some Cranberry Nut Muffins from a Taste of Home magazine from many years ago. I have many past magazines that I want to make recipes from, so I hunted through them this morning.
They are quite tasty with a cup of Stash Irish Breakfast tea.

That is all for now. There are no stitching updates at the moment. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. it is nice to have a snowmen collection out for the winter - how cute - glad the storm didn't get you - heard some have had it bad - we had nothing here in Arkansas

  2. I have some snow-people out at my house too. We finally got a little bit of snow this past week.

  3. I love snowmen! We had a dusting so it was a manageable weather event. The last photo looks cosy with a cup of warmth and a treat!!

  4. Greetings Cathie: I leave my snow people out until the snow is gone, we have had snow in April and May, I hope not this year.
    Your muffin looks yummy.


  5. What a wonderful collection, perfect for these Wintery months.

  6. Your snowmen are so cute!! It makes me wish I hadn't put all mine away. That cranberry muffin looks so yummy! I have been baking a lot more too, I guess it's the colder weather.

  7. Love your snow man collection how cute .
    Muffin looks so yummy.

  8. What a wonderful snowmen collection! Love the cute little couple. It looks nice to sit inside with a cup of tea and a freshly prepared muffin when it's snowy outside. :-)
