Smiling Snowman Macro Monday

IMG_5339


I love snowmen!  So is it any surprise that I bought a snowman ornament for my ornament swap partner?

He looks so very jolly!  I love how he has his arms stretched way above his head holding a candy cane!

Oops! The bag it was in got dropped, and even the bubble wrap around it did not protect it. Still he wears a smile, silly fellow!

Love the dancing feet!

Goodnight sweet Snowy. Needless to say I had to buy a different ornament for the swap.

Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign MckLinky. :) MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - Thanx to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week!

  10. Oh, poor Mr. Snowman! Before I saw the last couple of captures, I was gonna say that I LOVE snowmen, but detest the stuff they're made of. Hope your replacement stays in better shape!

  17. Cute post! :-)
    We find dead ornaments on the floor most mornings due to our cats leaping onto the Christmas tree and playing with the ornaments. Now that they are older, the casualties are fewer. Happy MM!

  20. oh the poor thing
    the little ones and I made a snowman and we used one of the baby carrots for a nose.. but 18 mo old mizzellie just kept pulling it off.

    We finally put his face on top of his head where she couldn't reach it.
    So -- he was an upward looking snow fellow

  25. awwwwwww he was lovely though he still is smiling through it all. My dh broke 2 on me yesterday.

    I'm writing about looking after poinsettias this week and since I have a good macro I thought I would join from my gardening blog this week Lisa rather than my photography one.

    Have a lovely week and thankyou for your comment over on my scavenger hunt post yesterday. :)
