It is appropiate for me to share Snow Babies with you today along with a few pics of our latest overnight snow. I adore Snow Babies and I have a very small collection of them. They are adorable little treasures and one can never take in how many are out there. My sister has hundreds of them in a glass case in her home. I am sharing just a few.
Quick Tips for Collecting Snow Baby Figures:
- The oldest Snow Baby figures manufactured in the early 1900s and sold in popular department stores measure a mere one to three inches tall.
- Antique snow babies that were made in Germany are the most desirable and valuable to collectors.
- Newer Snowbabies figurines by Dept. 56 probably won’t increase drastically in value over time unless they are limited edition pieces or special character editions.
- Older German snow baby figures have been widely reproduced, and some of them are good enough to fool even seasoned antiquers. Take care and study up before investing in what you believe to be an old snow baby.
Here are a few photos of the more vintage Snow Babies. Many of the newer ones have painted faces.
We could make a snow man if we wanted to bundle up to go outside.
I am just sharing a few pics of our deck. We never get much snow on our deck because it is under roof but this time it snowed hard and was windy.
The wind blew the rug up.
The wind blew my little painted birds over.
Spring where are you?
Happy days to you my dear blogging friends.
