Berries for Mr. Snowman!


From the SNOW PEOPLE collection by Darling & Company, Seattle, WA.

Snowmen first came on the scene, according Bob Eckstein, in his "History of the Snowmen" in the 16th century. They became especially popular in the Victorian era. He writes, "The picturing of snow people flourished in the penny-postcard era (1890-1920) when ma
ny thousands of cards were made."

(Watch for more Snowmen from the collection of Darling & Company!)


...and...


Look at that adorable little girl in her lovely blue coat!
Happy Blue Monday!

  7. Whimsical! Did you notice that the tree (at the midjoint) seems to be watching the snowman and smiling? Love those vintage vistas! Great blues too! Jenn
