* Silver and Gold....&....Snow Men *

Who remembers that song from the 1960's animated special, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer?  
♫♪  Silver & Gold ... Silver & Gold  ♫♪

Those are the only words I remember from the entire song, but I certainly remember the tune, and the voice of Burl Ives singing it!

 (I thought I'd do another Christmasy post tonite! You can always click on the photos to make them larger.)


This is a large glass bowl on our mantel. I filled it with plastic silver and gold ornaments and tied a silver ribbon around it. Not too shabby, huh?!


This is that $15.00 tree I mentioned in a previous post. It's about 6' tall, and has multi-colored lights. I added a string of white lights and it was just right (light-wise!)

Every ornament on the tree is plastic and bought from either Hobby Lobby or Dollar Tree. Wow, I'm a big spender, aren't I?!

BUT, it does look like I missed a spot or two, or three! I sure didn't notice it until I looked at this picture. 


I particularly like this one. 


.. And here are the Snow Men..in the half-bath ..


Whoa...I didn't realize that sink was so ugly, until I saw it in this picture, too. 
It must actually look much better in person!

The snowman soap dispenser on the left came from Kohl's a few years ago. I was thrilled to find it because my color scheme is blue and white! To the left and behind that snowman is a glass bowl with a few blue and gold plastic ornaments and sparkly stars.The snowman on the right is plastic and from Dollar Tree. He's adorable and his hat looks like it's real yarn. 
And a white hand towel with snowmen on it!


More snowmen. Another blue and white duo, on a sled. One under a candle lamp, and a little guy on skis. 


And another hand towel 

* Please don't forget about my Kickstarter Project. Thanks so much *



*I'm dreaming of a White Christmas* because we had a dusting of snow today and some fierce winds that are still blowing. BUT, according to the weather prognosticators...it's not going to happen. :(

  1. We are in the throes of a blizzard right now and there is more than a dusting of snow here. I will have to clean my car off in the morning to go to the store. It is to be 17 degrees tonight so that will be a cold job.

  2. Lovin' the snowmen and the silver and gold.... We had some snow on the ground for about ten minutes and then the rain started...oh well. You don't have to shovel rain.

  3. No snowman could survive here. No snow, and wind that would blow the carrot nose right off his face. And maybe his head right off his torso.

  5. Pretty, pretty, pretty. And despite what the weather boffins are saying you have a MUCH better chance of a white Christmas than I do. Sigh.

  6. Your tree and mantel are lovely. Your snowman themed things are cheery. I'd say you are ready for holiday, snow or not! I hope everyone can travel safely this next week, then we have plenty of time left in winter for some hearty snow days!

  8. It's really funny how attached folks from our generation are to the old Christmas shows. We had to wait all year to see them. There were no videos or DVDs. The family gathered around the television set to watch the show together. It was Christmas time again!

    Stay warm!

    I haven't experienced a white Christmas in decades. Came close a couple times...and there's not a chance again this year.

    Still hoping though! Happy Holidays! :)

  12. I'll wish really hard for you to have a White Christmas. And you wish really hard that we don't :) I love them, but I don't love them in south Texas!

    Merry Christmas!
    White or Not :)

  16. So pretty! You sure did great for $15 on that tree.

    Hope that you have a wonderful Christmas, Becky. I am nearly done shopping, but it doesn't matter because we have to stay home due to the bad weather. It makes me sad.

  17. I just watched Rudolph the other night, along with A Charlie Brown Christmas. My husband and I had a big discussion on how 40 years later, these are still the shows that pop up every year. We don't even know what the current shows are. (Are there any?) I love your little snowmen!

    Now I'll have Burl Ives in my head all evening--not that I mind! :)

  18. A $15 tree??? Wow!!!!!!

    And yes, I remember the song. :-)

    Dropping by to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Becky!

    Hope it's expecially merry!
