Forgotten Friends

Just look at these cheeky chaps!  On a mission to the loft to look for fancy dishes, came across these snowmen decs, how could I have forgotten these, although come to think about, didn't have them out last year, didn't have much out last year as only just moved to Dorset.  They were all huddled together in a box, just screaming to get out, so out they've come.  They are, I think about 15 years old, they came from Colony Candle Factory in Lindal in Furness, Ulverston in Cumbria, which was a candle factory, the fragrance from that factory shop was like no other, I can still smell it now, which also sold alsorts of decorations through the year, these I think were Seasons of Cannon Falls, (dont know if there still going, but Colony sold out to them or an american candle factory and got all the cast of decorations) they  were ridiculously cheap something like 50p, but the detail is amazing!  covered in newspaper sat on a little tin, like a tart tin, with silver twig arms and...


woolly scarfs...

crocheted snowflakes and beads...

Snowman Seeds

After the first frost of a cold Autumn night
Sow these seeds in a spot just right.
With plenty of room that will allow to grow.
Jolly round men made out of snow.
These snowmen seeds are not easy to find,
 so plant them well and if you don't mind
share them with a friend because
they come with love from heaven above
