Snowmen, Tagged, Award and a Unique Giveaway

Good Saturday morning to you!
It's so cold here today only 23* right now, we are having January weather in November but the temps are going up a little next week...thank goodness especially for all those that still have to shop for Thanksgiving! Our turkey is out in the garage freezer and I'm really anxious to eat some:)
I thought I'd show you some of my snowmen that I've got out, I still have so much more to do and now with this job or I should say jobs...yesterday while watching the videos at Peebles the Dollar Tree called me for a job, well it's right next to Peebles so I told her I'd be right over after I was done here:) The Dollar Store needs me for day shift so I'm going to work both places...how do you like that, I went from no job to two jobs but I'm so thankful that this happened before Christmas!
Some of you commented on this ornament that showed in a pic in yesterdays post so I took a picture of it off the tree...know I didn't make it I had bought it a while ago at a craft show and it looked like his country stuff was from a wholesale place, anyway I just loved it!

I hung this berry wreath that I had got at a yard sale, four of them for $3.00 the window is from a old milk house and I paid $10.00 for it a long time ago:) Isn't the spool snowman cute? My friend from Missouri sent me it I usually have him on my big tree but this year I'm trying different ideas.
I love this guy, he's a nice size:)

This one here I got last summer at the historical society yard sale for a $1.00, who would sell him? I guess someone who just isn't country.lol Love his little shovel and sled!

My garden snowman is a cutey too:)

So soft and cuddley is this one!

The pic is of my mom at Christmas and she love Christmas so much so I had to put a snowman right by her:)
