Snowmen, ancient and modern

Of course it's very easy to see which design is the more modern one but there are remarkable similarities with both snowmen having red hats and little people surrounding them.  I'm not sure what the toadstool connection is, if that's what they are.  The first is a reprint of a card in the Estonian Open Air Museum's collection.  The second is a UNICEF card sent from Germany.

This is a post for Postcard Friendship Friday hosted on Beth Niquette's blog, The Best Hearts are Crunchy.


  1. The toadstool elves look rather like the characters in the Rise of the Guardians movie! Merry Christmas...and happy PFF!

  2. I love snowmen -- vintage and new. Too cute! Happy PFF!

  3. Hahahaa...I love those mushroom hats! lol

    Thank you--this postcard made my day. Happy PFF and Merry Christmas.

  4. The top snowman looks much happier than the bottom one - with his bottle of gluhwein?

  5. Love both cards for depicting the snowman as an animated creation. First card looks something from a fairytale story about Christmas. :)

    Happy PFF! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you & your family!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
