Now They Are Gone

I took these pictures last Sunday — February 28 — and am just now getting around to posting them. I thought about not bothering because they are ‘old news’ now, but decided that I really did want to share them. This first one was just one house over on our road. I  saw it on Saturday evening when it was too dark to take a picture and when I stopped by on Sunday afternoon to do so the makers told me it had already shrunk a foot, but he was still very tall. We had a major dump of wet snow on Friday so Saturday was the perfect snowman making day, but then it was very warm on Sunday and things were melting fast. We have had a week of very warm days which means the snow is pretty much gone now — we got very little snow this year — I just hope we don’t get it in April — it has happened before : )

He was showing his support for the Canadian Olympics Hockey Team : )

This snowman caught my eye as we were driving to get lunch — I think it was the orange hat and that he was so big. Then when I got out of the car to take the picture I realized that he was a 2-sided snowman. I have never seen a snowman like this before — Have you?

I have been busy making lots of stuffy friends. I now have 60 finished and ready to go — will post some pictures soon.

I have also started an Etsy shop to sell a few of my creations to help cover the cost of the ones going to the Phillipines. I do have a few things listed and have some more almost ready. For me it is one more ‘computery’ thing to learn so it will take me a little time to get it looking the way I would like it to. My wonderful daughter made my shop banner — she is really good at that kind of thing. I will tell you the story behind the shop name another day.

    I love the Canada snowman! I’m glad you decided to still post the pictures. Hasn’t the weather been amazing the last few days?! And yes, you really need to head over to the green house in Niagara Falls sometime. It’s probably only half an hour from your place.
