Let it Snow!

Today I thought I'd share my collection of snowmen and pine trees.  They are housed in our dining room, because there's a fireplace (and mantle) there on which to show them off.  I've been collecting these for many years; again, they are a mix of homemade, bought, and gifts.  Here is the center of the line-up:


And a collage of most of them.   There's even one in an old mason jar!


This year we put in this little Charlie Brown tree, which usually decorates the porch with just red ribbons, but we thought we'd try it here this year.  I used mostly red ornaments and some snowflakes on  it.  That door is not used anymore since we put on our addition.  We probably should have taken it out, but that would have meant re-wallpapering the whole room, and I still like that wallpaper,  so it is the "door to nowhere".


And since we're in the snowman mode, here's a snowman card:


I'm entering it into Caardvark's final challenge: monocromatic.  As always, thanks for visiting!
