Ok girls, you can look  now and laugh if you must, at my silly little snowmen parade . It's supposed to look like a snowmen winterland. I never got to decorate my pine branches outside because it was raining today... again.

Here is one of the Dollar Store small tree decorated with  the snowflakes and one still waiting.
Since our chimney liner was cracked in a chimney fire years ago we have stopped using our fireplace and I've placed a sofa in front of it. We want to replace it with a gas one that has a nice mantel some day and  and I would like to remove that ugly angel brick wall and replace it with a plain wall.
I've tied the fake evergreen garlands with florist wire around the shelf as base for the snowmen.

             Here are my snowmen on parade. All of them from Dollar Store or Value Village.                                                         
More snowmen occupying my entrance

                                              A big smile to welcome the guests to our house

                                                                More snowmen from Value Village

                                            Again a Value Village find. Snowman on skis

These snowmen will find a home on the large Christmas tree. All Dollar Store finds.

                  This door hanger snowman is greeting our guests at the closet door. 

Sorry for bad lighting. It was raining today. It says Stocking Feet. This was made in Shelburne Nova Scotia and was bought at Value Village
                             Another snowman door hanger. Dollar Store buy.

                            A small soap dish snowman for rear entrance bathroom.

I've been tired this week with not enough restful  sleep and I did some pretty crazy things. The first one is that  I got in the shower and started shampooing my hair and I noticed that I still had my glasses on.
Today I went to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription and was trying to use my debit card. Three times it informed that I had an invalid pin number. I started to believe that I was forgetting my pin number when I noticed that I was using another credit card of the same color. The pharmacist must I thought that I was an Alzheimer patient.  I got it, once I figured that I was using the wrong card. Now you have something to laugh at if you didn't laugh at my cheap snowmen.

Thanks for dropping in..  JB
