This is where it all started...

So I thought I would share with you all
just how I got my inspiration for
these little "Vintage Inspired Snowmen"

It all began last Summer when I 
happened to come across these ..

One of my Saturday Garage Sale Stops
This sale happened to have a lot of crafty stuff..

Now mind you I got there a little late
the house next door was where the line for the
Estate sale was and I waited and I waited
finally got in but yikes the prices were too high

I managed to find a few smalls but
nothing to brag about

Yet right next door was a garage sale
and thats where I found these little treasures!

A few bags of Spun cotton balls
from Germany all 3 bags for $1

So that's when my creative juices got going
And when it was all said and done.....

I made these!
"Pinecone Snowmen"

Similar to the ones from yesteryears
Never know what's going to inspire us...
Happy Creating!
