Let It Snow, Let It Snow

A funny snow photo

It’s been a long, cold few weeks for a lot of us. Cold weather and ice can be a big pain or worse for sure. However, it can also be beautiful and fun. We always try to focus on the beautiful things in the world at Matboard and More (our excellent frames being one example), so I thought, at the end of this freezing week, we could take some time to appreciate the fun side of snow and winter by looking at some fun things to do with snow.

A great picture of a Disney villain

First up, a recognizable character- Davy Jones, from Pirates of the Caribbean! I hadn’t ever seen a snow sculpture of him before, and I am very impressed by the detail

A creepy photography of arth Vader from Stars Wars

Next up, another villain- none other than Darth Vader. This one may not be as technically impressive as Davy Jones’s tentacle beard, but Vader is just awesome, so it felt right to include him. It’s also interesting to see his iconic helmet in white for a change.

A funny snow photo

Next up, this creative piece. Getting a snowman to stand and balance is one of the hardest parts, so this sculptor decided to give their a very firm base- a mailbox! Hopefully their mail carrier got kick out of it on their busy day.

A photo of an Australia winter

A finally a picture from Australia. It would have been taken a different time of year, since they’re actually in the middle of a heatwave!

 

Try and keep warm everyone!
