The Hug


I've noticed that many around Blogville are still playing in the snow.


Come on in and take your mittens off to warm your hands by the fire.


I'll fix you a cup of hot chocolate.


These cute little snow-people mugs from William Sonoma keep your chocolate steaming hot under the top hat.


You say you are hungry too?


No problem! Look what we have inside the tin.




Snowmen cookies just for you!


~Enjoy~



Mary Engelbreit's frosty tin has been in our home since the 1990s.
Though the bare trees and snow covered evergreen branches
of this winter scene may reflect a cold day . . .



The smiles generated from the three way hug certainly warm my heart.



The hug says it all.

Thank you, Mary Engelbreit, for the whimsical joy your art brings into our lives.

  9. Sarah, this is such a cute post, and I am loving every bit of it! Those snow men mugs with the hats are genius. How cute they are! An I love the ME design, too, and all of your cute things. You have the best "goddies" of all! :-)

    Hope you are staying warm. We are having the big chill this morning, and then I drive again this afternoon to go to some things this week. I'm glad to get out, but now I've thrown myself in head first, I fear! LOL!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  14. Good Morning Sarah,
    If only I could come right over. I would love some hot chocolate out of those darling Snowman mugs. It's cold here in FL and I call the 50's cold. Thanks so much for sharing your ME and snowman with us on ME Monday.

  17. Sarah,
    Thank you for this sweet ME post today. I do so wish we still had Home Companion available. During our ice storm last week, I retrieved all my past Home Companion Jan./Feb. Magazines and just enjoyed each and every page.
    It was a lovely visit!
    Fondly,
    Pat
