FROSTY the PINK SNOWMAN REVEAL...and a Thank You, too!

 ~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... 
Bless You!
~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~
~BEFORE SHOT~

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~

Hi Rebecca,
Oh my goodness so sorry to hear that your sweet daughter had an ER trip. So glad she is doing good now and feeling better. Prayers were answered!

Love your snowman with the softer colors. Just too pretty!! It must have been so fun to paint. These are among my favorites when we cut them out of wood. It looks tall? How wonderful for a porch. Always love your creations!!

Have a wonderful afternoon.

I think Mr. Snowman's look is very stunning. The colors and detail are so nice. I usually like tradition too but have been favoring softer tones myself. Especiall pink.

I am happy your prayers were answered for your daughter. What a blessing.

Thanks for sharing.

NanaNor's said...

Hi Rebecca, So thankful that all the prayers for your daughter were answered. Love the snowman, I too love pink but as I've grown older I sometimes like using burgundy and gold in my Christmas colors-but the pink and green is definitely nicer.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,Noreen

Carol said...

Now this is what I call a real "Stand up Kind of Snowman" with his/her gentle side of pink.

Now for the final touches with your all famous German glass glitter the transformation is something we all want to showcase for Christmas in our homes. Hint, hint, is this a keeper or will you be putting it in your Shoppe?

Hi Rebecca, I'm still making my rounds, at least trying to catch up with everybody. First of all, I am so glad to know your Daughter is much better. Prayers certainly do help in these matters.

The snowman is darling Rebecca, l like it so much better, just the right perfect coloring. As always your good taste makes everything grand!

Shirley said...

I really like your Mr. Frosty's makeover. I enjoy different colors for the holiday, then the traditional colors. I am glad that your daughter is doing o.k. It is hard on parents even though our children are grown. You can replace a lot of things, but you cant replace a child. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Rebecca, so glad Adrienne is o.k. As for the snowman, what can I say? Another masterpiece my dear. Can't wait to see it after you glitter it up. Looking forward to the new goodies you are working on! God bless you and your family!
