A Winter Celebration!

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. We, as of yet, have not had enough snow to build a snowman or snowwoman. I hope we will have some more snow before winter's end. Happy WW!

  2. No Snow -- just sunshine and 60+degree weather, doesn't seem like January.

  3. Satta king Play Bazaar At the point when what you post is appealing, it creates more adherents. It does this in light of the fact that the individuals who as of now tail you or have "loved" you on Facebook will be increasingly disposed to impart your connection to their companions.
