Spring Snow Family

Sarah from the wonderful Tangled Happy in Kansas asked if we'd be making snowmen after our spring snowfall yesterday. I thought so, but Macy was right; this far along in the season the snow melts too fast. We did make our snow family on March 9th though...

Dad snowman was outfitted thanks to dear Peggy in North Carolina. Macy used the mountain ash berries to work up Mom's tossed salad 'do, and dead ribbon grass from this project worked wonders for Macy's long hair. 

Max was probably wondering if he'd get a snow dog... and he did.

March 31st and this is what was left. Yesterday's snow is still melting; the best part is that the robins, juncos, blue jays, chickadees and nuthatches are busy, busy looking for food and singing. Spring is so good.


  1. Oh my! I hope that snow doesn't come our way.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Hi Tracey! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I tried to reply to your comment, but couldn't because you are a 'no reply blogger' which means I can't reply to your comments on my blog.....its something you can easily fix so that when you leave comments, other bloggers can reply to them...this link will tell you all about it - http://www.nutmegplace.com/2012/03/are-you-no-reply-blogger.html
    Don't worry - its not just you, lots of bloggers have had this problem - its a setting you just have to tweak. Thought I would help out a fellow Canadian, I am an Ontario girl currently living in Virginia USA! Love your blog! Have a great Easter weekend! Heather :)

    1. Thanks so much Heather - I'm fixed up now, whew! Bunny AND blog faux pas all in one week! :)

  3. I love snowmen and I would have missed this if I hadn't started following you! I can't imagaine getting enough snow to make a whole family!
    We don't get a lot of snow in Alabama, but last time, my daughter made a snowman and a snow porcupine. I'll have to show her your cute dog.

    I like what you noted about being 50 and in your own vintage photos! I hear ya!

    Happy Easter,


I really appreciate your visit and comments! :)
