My snowman tree

Well girls, my snowman tree isn't prim but I love it just the same.  See the painted Amish cheese box under the tree?  That was my Christmas present from my sister last year.  She works at an Amish cheese house and I had been bugging her about a cheese box but she kept ignoring me.  I was getting perturbed with her... then when I opened my present I realized why she was ignoring me.  Her talented daughter-in-law painted the snowman scene on it and I just love it!

I only use blue and rusty ornaments for this tree.  It has snowballs, snowflakes, mittens, and snowmen.

I had a great-uncle that was a big man with a big nose (well, really he did and he would admit it) who always had a deep, jolly laugh that made you laugh when you heard it.  He rightfully earned the nickname "Frosty" and that's what we always called him.  See my "I love Frosty" ornament?

The snowman tree started out as a 4' tree about 8 years ago.  Then it graduated to a 5' tree.  Now it has become a 7' tree.  I'm gonna have to stop buying for it because I don't want to go any bigger, haha!

It's one of my favorite trees and the most fun to decorate.  It's my little tribute to Uncle Frosty who has passed on.

I wish for you and your family a warm and wonderful, Christ filled Christmas~

Your snowman tree is so pretty!! I had blue and white lights on one of my trees last year...the lights were snowflaked shaped.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and catching up with me. I've missed you too! I'm going to email you after Christmas to answer all your questions and to send you the info about the towels. I still have all the samples that I did.

Take care and have a Merry Christmas.

Oh I hope your uncle knew you honored him with this tree...how sweet and that gift from your sister...now she's a girl after my own heart tricking someone into thinking they didn't listen or care...and then popping up with the special gift afterall...lol

Your tree is just beautiful Angie and I love the color combination you used.
