The snowbabies are tiny, just under an inch high. They are ceramic and new, bought from a lady at a craft fair who makes them. I bought loads. She doesn't have a blog or site but I have her contact number if anyone is interested.
I also got some much bigger ones...
The tree here is maybe six inches high, to give you an idea of scale, it (and the sled) are made by the same person as well. The babies are gorgeous, with great personality and are just as quirky as the vintage ones (that cost a bomb these days).
My parents' cake is the more traditional square with tree and snowman to top it off. I tried to get a tiny bottle of brandy in town, to give the cakes a drink, no luck at all, only big bottles- and I don't drink the stuff. So they are booze free this year.
Off to Chatsworth today to do the annual thing there. The house theme is panto apparently, should be interesting!
