I went to Dillard’s to see what they had left in clearance and found 2 of these beautiful plates, Made in Portugal. (and I REALLY needed them! haha)

I’m joining Mosaic Monday HERE.

I hope your snowmen don't melt in all that glorious Florida sunshine! Lovely to have your company once again for MM today.

Your snowmen are sweet. It is 16 degrees here right now and the snow has stayed. We are house bound for a few more days here in the country. The weather is suppose to start warming up on Wed.

Cranberry Morning said...

I would happily send you a few feet of snow Diane.LOL. Sweet snowmen. I think most of the country has too much snow or rain right now. Enjoy your day. xo

Boopnut said...

Should be getting a lot of snow this week. I prefer your snowmen!
Take care.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Snow here for a couple of days. I leave my snowmen out fir January as well. Enjoy the day.

Awww cute little snowfolks. Good thing they are unmeltable, and so adorable. Our snow is finally melting and we are back to good old Pacific Northwest rainy winter. Your new plates are so pretty - and perfect for this new year. Hope your week is super wonderful my dear friend.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love the snowmen! I have one out and my JOY plate and will enjoy them until February probably! It's cold here but the sun is shining so that makes me feel good.
hugs!!

Arlene Grimm said...

Those are my favorite kinds of snowmen Diane...not a fan of the REAL ones.:)

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Your snowmen are so cute and that plate is one that you really needed! I really like the cute little white squirrel as well. Your bookcase is so pretty with all of your winter decor. Enjoy a beautiful day. ♥

Susie said...

Diane, I love the things you have left out for the month of January. I sure hope it doesn't snow there. This weather continue to be crazy. It's single digits lots here and next week may reach 60. Is that nuts? Blessings to you and yours , hope your days are sunny. xoxo, Susie

Susan said...

obviously, you didn't get the white stuff that the Carolinas did! I would love your snowmen rather than the icey stuff we got. XOXO

Sam I Am...... said...

I've always stated that there is a difference between Christmas decorations and Winter decorations. I love your "winter" decorations and where did you get that cute white squirrel? Also, do you have storage units? LOL! Your house always looks so nice and I wonder where you put all these decorations when they're out of season. LOL!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diane, I just saw you on our friend, Carla's blog, for her sweet snowmen giveaway! I'm not able to comment on her posts any more for some reason, so I always go through e-mail. Your snowmen are so cute, and I think it's a great idea to leave them out for these cold January days. What a great find at Dillard's, and made in
Portugal, even better. It looks pretty on your shelf, and Peace is such a special word.

Have a nice week, Diane.

love, ~Sheri

Love your cute snowmen. We have a little bit of snow, but it is warming up this week and will actually be 60 one day. That's my kind of winter weather. xo Laura

Joy H said...

Love the plate, very pretty! Not much snow here yet but may be some moving in the area. Love your banner, so cute!

Cloudia said...

Peace to you! Hugs

Lynn said...

Lovin' your little snowmen, I have mine out too:@)

happyone said...

Your snowmen don't melt. : )
It warmed up a bit here today. It was 20 in the afternoon after starting out at 0.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

I am more than happy to host you here if you want to get your fill of snow, then I will come to sunny warm Florida after- how does that sound to you, sweet friend? : - )

Hope you are having a wonderful new year so far! Hugs!

Shelia said...

Hi Diane. You may be glad your snowmen are just little pretties as I know so many folks with the real stuff are having a hard time! Love seeing your little snowmen and the places are so pretty. Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Gina said...

Diane, hello sweet snowmen! And love the squirrel! And the plates too - you did need them!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The snowmen really are cute! Who is that brave little girl inn your header post card -- riding her trike one footed?

bj said...

I am trying with all my might not to buy any more dishes...but these plates sure are cute....

Carla from The River said...

Hi,
I like that white squirrel. Where did you find him? Cute snowmen, I hope you will be adding to your collection soon ;-)

Linda H said...

Now see? If you'd taken me up on my offer, you could have made REAL snowmen.... Lol Snowmen here don't melt, not for a few months anyway. You may have puddles to clean up. Lol

Vee said...

I heard that there is snow somewhere in Florida today. Can that be right? Well, of course, all one has to do is look in your home! Cute little snowmen you have there and those Peace plates? Lovely finds.

NanaDiana said...

I love cute little snowmen this time of year...they are good through March here. lol
I love those plates! You definitely needed those. xo Diana

orchid Miyako said...

Oh, you made me wish to have one (snow man)♡♡♡ We only have a couple of snow falls in one winter; well that's why p:-)
Wonderful match with plate♪
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

Debby Ray said...

I love all of your winter lovelies, Diane! I think I heard on the news that Florida was the only state that did not have snow! You can always make winter happen inside though, right?? Enjoy your "winter wonderland"! Hugs!

Maggie Ann said...

I enjoy coming to your blog. You are refreshing! Shopping is fun....no doubt about it! Wishing you a nice day.

Pamela Gordon said...

Yes, it is cold and we have lots of snow here in the northeast but I only have a couple of snowmen on display this year. I guess I'm winter weary already. Your snowmen are really cute! Have a great week!

eileeninmd said...

Hello, I love your cute Florida snowmen. Your peace plate is lovely, great find. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

Snap said...

I leave the snowmen out, too. Although, today I moved the largest one to make room for my amaryllis that is getting too big. Lovely plates. A girl can never have too many plates! Happy New Year!

Cherdecor said...

I am happy to see your winter decorations. I think that snowmen are a nice winter décor for any state. I love your plates, and I think that you needed them!

Our temperatures here have been 3 and 5 degrees in the mornings. That would not be so bad, but our furnace was having issues. We would have to shut it off and on to keep it running. Finally, today the furnace man came and put in a new heat sensor. Now we can be happy!

Cranberry Morning said...

Ha! Well I just wrote next Friday's blog post before coming here. Great minds, as they say. All about snowmen and the library!! I even still have my tree up, but no ornaments, just the lights because they help cheer up a dreary, gray, cold January. :-)

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

There's nothing wrong with snowmen in Florida, perhaps a few snowflakes too? lol
No end to the snow this year but another 3 weeks and we'll be in the sunshine state. I just hope the drive will be OK as many states are getting a lot of snow too, places where they're not used to driving in it.
I'm sure the new plates will be put to good use!

Cranberry Morning said...

Well well! I see that I had already commented on this post. I think I've been way too busy. And now I'm wondering if your post is what put library and snowmen into my head! If so, thanks. :-)) Hope you're having a good week, Diane. xo

Lorrie said...

Cute snowmen, Diane. It's fun to have wintry things out in January - even if you don't have any snow! We rarely do, either! But it's COLD here these days.
Love the plate - of course you needed it!

Kathy said...

I decorate with snowmen in January. I think yours are cute!

Jeanie said...

I bring out my snow folk after the Santas go down and keep them up through February. They're cheery! You have a beautiful collection of very charming ones -- great faces, good details. You have a wonderful collecting eye.

And the Peace plates are wonderful!

Yesteryear Embroideries said...

Such sweet snowmen! We had very cold temps a couple of days, but are back into sunny 60s. We do need moisture however! Enjoy your week!

podso said...

You should leave your snowmen out, after all, its' winter. We've seen snow in Florida, but it did not amount to anything. None the less, lovely big flurries.

BeachGypsy said...

love your plates! I put away Christmas but did leave out a few snowmen for the remainder of the winter. They will go with valentines decor here in a couple weeks, right? so glad they cold spell has nearly worked its way on through here.....and back up into the 70s we go....just like I like it in January! LOL

Mildred said...

Good Morning and happy new year, sweet friend. I adore the snowmen and the plates are very pretty. I am definitely a dish-a-holic! xoxo

Lowcarb team member said...

Well in my part of the UK we've had snow today ... so it was lovely seeing your snowmen!

All the best Jan

Candy S said...

I love the snowmen... they are so cute and wonderful for winter the winter season. I am also inspired now to get busy and bake a chicken pot pie with yesterdays left over baked chicken breast. Yum..........
