Frosty's Friends

Lera's done it again. She always has fun ideas. I saw her button snowmen hand towels and ran with it. She had a tough time deciding between white thread or black, so I used both. I also practiced my french knots for the eyes.

A local thrift has a big bowl of buttons for a dime a piece. I found exactly what I was looking for to make my snowmen. The dollar store had perfectly red striped hand towels. The thrift + dollar store = low cost crafting. One big note to self: digging through buttons is addicting.

On a completely random tangent... I have such a difficult time coming up with things for my Christmas list. There are plenty of things that could go on my list, I just don't think much about what I need. I've put myself on the back burner... it's official: I'm a mom!

Case in point: my husband has been sick and the air is quite cold. To prevent him from getting pneumonia, I've been taking our Scotty dog, Silhouette, for all her walks and potty breaks. Silly (as she's affectionately known) likes to run occasionally. This was the case a couple of nights ago. So, after she did her business, I picked up the pace and ran for home - watching Silly smile the whole time. Once home, I realized, something doesn't feel quite right. Yup, the elastic in my underwear is so shot, that my undies had slipped down over my hips, inside my pants. Actually, the only thing holding them up was the fact that I was wearing pants.

I guess now there is one thing I can add to my Christmas list: new underwear.

And how many times a year do we moms buy underwear for everybody else in the house? Why do we wait until it's an absolute necessity?

Very cute towels!!!

casch said...

I couldn't help but laugh out loud reading your "run home" !! Guess what's on your list now!

Oh, and I love the snowman towels!

Danielle said...

Hahaha! too funny:-) I save my worn out ones for when I have another baby...that way I can just throw them away.

I love the snowmen:-) Good tip on the dollar store...I'll have to check at mine!

Your undies story really made my day! Adorable snowmen towels, too, button-shopping IS fun!

Patty said...

Your towels are cute! And, I'm sorry to hear your undies fell down. Good thing you weren't wearing a skirt! By the way, I tried your html trick for getting links to open in a new window and it works! Thank you!

lera said...

I guess it's a good thing you weren't wearing a skirt!!!! Can you imagine?? I think I'd just step right out of them and keep on walking! lol

Love your snowmen. You know, I used the 49 cent dish towels from Ikea. So cheap. (I couldn't say that on my blog because some of my recipients read my blog.)

Yes, that Silly dog likes to run--home. She takes her time sniffing everything in sight on the way out. It was great "walking" the dog today. And I found out casch has a blog too! So is that you total Christmas list?

Missa said...

Haha! Thanks for the reminder, I'm way overdue for some undie shopping myself!

Those towels are so sweet and I love love love your dog's name, how perfect and his nickname makes it even better!

Leah said...

underwear is definately on my list! those snow men are so cute! Love your little dolls on etsy too!

Sweet Annabelle said...

I can sympathize with the underwear dilemma. Another sign that it's time to buy new: If you husband ever says, as mine did, "I think you should throw that pair away!"

I LOVE the snowmen dishtowels!! Dow you have them for sale in your shop? If not, may I have permission to make some myself?



Sweet Annabelle said...

Hi, again!

Can I post a picture of these and a link to your blog on mine? LOVE these!


Katie Trott said...

that's what I always tell my kids that they are getting for Christmas!

Sweet Annabelle said...

Hey! Merry Christmas - hope you are doing well, these days! I'm going to sew some of these snowmen on a scarf I've made for a friend. Hope you don't mind if I 'pin' this on my pinterest board.

God Bless you and your family,
