I've finally acquired enough of these Jim Shore snow people to clump them as a collection.
This year they are on the piano, and will probably stay there through January.
I like 'em too much to put them away with the Christmas decorations.
The red bird snowman is my newest addition to the family.
Another collection that is complete after years of gathering. I love my Willow Tree nativity. So simple but powerful at the same time. This is the first thing I put out when decorating. (Each one is packed in styrofoam which makes a real mess, but it is definitely worth it to keep the pieces safe.)
I love junk, which is usually rusty and chippy and non-shiny. Then here I go collecting mercury glass. Even shiny new mercury glass looks old and shabby.
The tree was a bargain at Cracker Barrel last year.
The sleigh was a flea market find this fall. I loaded it full of some
vintage mercury glass ornaments I have.
Merry Christmas, Everyone.
