Shoveling a Path!

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."

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


  1. Have a wonderful weekend! Grace

  2. So glad the snowmen are on the card and not in my yard.

  3. Good morning, Coralie! Well, the photo isn't showing up for me, but I'm sure it's wonderful, as all the images you share are wonderful!

    I've been on a "blog break" for a few weeks, but I'm back & it's so nice to visit my friends again!

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend, my friend!


  4. So precious Coralie, I really like this one!

  5. I just love this artist's work! Thank you for sharing.
