Snow sprite




We Virginians finally had some snow on Saturday, but if you blinked you might have missed it.  This morning the road had a few sparse patches with blacktop peeking through.  When I say sparse, I mean really sparse.  If you scraped really well you might accumulate a thimbleful amount of snow.

And that gave me an idea.  Since we haven’t had enough snow this year to build even one snowman, I figured why not.  I’ll build a snow-sprite. 

So here he is-- the little Virginia Elfin Snow Sprite.  A step down from my soda can sized snow buddy from last year.  Since they are predicting temperatures in the 50’s for the coming week as the song says… he better run and have some fun now before he melts away.

Snow sprite?!? Now that's a new one. If you want this little fella to have any life at all I'd suggest you get him in the freezer as fast as you can if it's not already too late. You do know you're a bit of a nut don't you? Join the club. :^)

Oh this is soo adorable!!! We have been having horrendously freezing temps here but very little new snow for I think more than a month. The temps are too cold - dry snow - so no snowmen for us at the moment :(

Adorable! We didn't get the 2-5" predicted here in NY either--no complaints from me. It is going to warm up to 50 by Wednesday!

This is the cutest little snow creature ever!! Love it! When I was a little kid I was obsessed with snowmen for a bit. I made a small one that I wanted my mom to keep in the freezer so it would never melt. And then, when that didn't really work, I started making them out of play dough.

We have enough snow for a snowman here, but I'm not feeling especially motivated to make one. Much rather stay inside where it's warm.
