Snowmen on the Table and Mary Jo Leisure

The Christmas decorations are all put away except for the snowmen.  I keep them up until Valentine's Day and then I'm ready for the Spring countdown! For the time being though I like to use the snowmen wherever I can.

I designed this snowman plaque "Pudgy" a few years ago while at an annual Design Seminar with Mary Jo Leisure.  It's usually perched on the shelf in my front entryway. Today, I decided to use it as part of this simple tablescape.

Each day, during the week of "Design" in our beautiful surroundings at CedarCrest Lodge, Mary Jo reviewed the Elements of Design and planned opportunities for us to create original sketches using Daily Assignments. In addition to the classroom experience, Mary Jo taught us to Live Creatively and see beauty in many ways. Meals were provided for us during the week and the beautiful tablescape would include the design she created from that day's assignment (a wood surface or theme).  There's was always anticipation as we waited to see what she came up with when the dinner bell would ring. So this one's for you Mary Jo!

By placing the Banana Bread on a clear glass plate you can see the painting underneath.
I took a few minutes to shape the butter into a snowball shape and used fabric with dots that look like snowballs to carry through the theme.
 Here's Pudgy as he looks when he's sitting on the shelf.
You'll find the recipe for the Banana Bread HERE on my Recipe Blog.
Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepts thy works.- Ecclesiastes 9:7
