~SWEET PINK and CREAM SNOWMAN~
Before I say anything about Mr. Frosty's Makeover I first want to say a BIG, BIG thank you for your thoughts and concern over my daughter. Her recent emergency room trip from a couple of days ago was frightening but she is doing great now and has returned to work. Thank you for your prayers... Honest~THANK YOU!!! They matter and they mean more than I can say! I'm so grateful to God for always being just a whisper away and for friends who are willing to present our travails to the Father in our behalf...
~REPAINTED w/CREAM, TAUPE, AGED PINK and SAGE~
Now...I promised you on Monday (gosh...was it MONDAY???) that I'd show you pictures of the repaint I gave to the wooden Snowman I picked up a few days ago at ROSS. As much as I love the traditional colors of Christmas they just don't work in my softly colored home. Still...I wanted to be careful because I'm not a big fan of things being overdone OR over-pinked. I love pink...I do! I do!!!!! But, during the past year and a half I've become a huge fan of the paler, softer side of this amazing color. You can still find it in every room in my home only it's been toned down and I'm over-the-moon happy with it!
~HAND PAINTED PINK ROSE on HAT~
I may go back and add a little something or other (that means a pink rose or two or maybe some rosebuds) to the vest of my stylin' Snow-Dude and yet again...I may not. May add something to the little birdhouse instead. We'll see! I do know that I will be dusting parts of my new holiday friend with a bit of German Glass Glitter for just a hint of Christmas sparkle and shine!
~PINK ROSEBUDS ON MITTENS~
I opted to leave my little winged friends their original color. I love Red Birds and see them often in our trees... So...the pretty bird found at the top of the broom and the one on the birdhouse were left as-is! A repaint was given to the scarf, mittens, holly leaves and berry, birdhouse, vest and lining as well as Frosty's top hat! His cheeks were lightly blushed but the original soft white paint used on Frosty Body (which looked fabulous) was left in place! Not sure if you can tell in the photos but the front buttons are actually old soda bottle caps (lids). Too cool!
Here is the original picture again so you don't have to scroll back:
~TOTALLY COTTAGE CHIC~
Thanks for stopping in today!
I'm headed back into my studio to work on new Christmas Goodies for your buying (and dreaming about) pleasure! :) :) :)
Blessings and love to you~
