A Cartoony Christmas For Me!

You can see that, as a professional cartoonist, a lot of the Christmas gifts I ask for and receive are comic and cartoon related. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!   I love it!  Above are some of the books, comic strip collections and mugs I was lucky enough to get this year.  I have already read some of them! In addition to these items, I also received several animated films on DVD: Disney’s The Sword And The Stone (50th Anniversary Edition), Angry Birds and Finding Dory.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!

Merry Christmas!!

Everyone in the Rose family, as well as everyone in Hootin’ Holler, wishes you a bodaciously blessed Christmas! We’re so thankful for all our Snuffy Smith readers and hope that each and every one of you have a happy and prosperous New Year!

Snuffy an’ Loweezy Christmas Ornaments!

Loweezy and Snuffy Old Time Milk Glass Christmas Light Ornaments.

Two exciting recent Ebay finds for me are these Old Time “Milk Glass” Christmas Light Ornaments of Snuffy Smith and Loweezy Smith! Hand made by Barclay, these bulb covers act two ways: They come with a standard style crown cap and loop, so you can hang them like regular Christmas tree ornaments. Or, if you prefer to make them glow with all the realism of an antique bulb, simply slip them onto any “midget” type light string, and they’ll softly glow.  They look great on a tree, but I use them as permanent fixtures in my studio year round!
