The Final Touches!


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 many thousands of cards were made."

  1. Coralie,
    I just wanted to to tell you that I love these images you put up. I have a snowman obsession I suspect. Lots of snowmen in my winter decorating, and when I paint I often end up painting snowmen. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. Always looking forward to more!
    Have a wonderful week,
    Julie

  3. Hi Coralie,

    Thanks for all the cool background on snowmen, living in Arizona, I don't have enough appreciation for them.

    Hugs,
