Just the little things

Today it is just some of the smaller parts of the season. First is a wicker sleigh filled with little gifts and delivered by a clown, fairy, elf and an angel That my grandmother gave me for Yule when I was 5 or 6. This year I added a snowman and a Santa to make deliveries easier on them.

I have 12 Nativity scenes, but this is the the one I hand chalked and I think it turned out fantastic, the colors are softer and so crisp. Other ones i have include both sets of grandparents and the one I was given when I was 12 and asked for one for Christmas.

Here is my very small tree collection. On the R is a cloth one made for me by a very creative friend. On the left is one I chalked of all child angels with musical instruments

Last year for Yule (or the year before) I received this tray, hand stained and very nicely lined and candle holders made by her husband. Neat, aren't they? I added the filler and isn't it simple, country rustic and attractive?

Yepp, there is a story to this Santa too. Tired of them yet? Several years ago (10 or more) Scott and i went to Michael's and he saw and fell in love with this Santa, so did I, but he passed on it because they wanted $80 for it. I went back the next day because I had a 25% off coupon and found out it was marked down 50% already AND I got him for less than $20. Outstanding! Scott isn't tired of him yet.

Here's a picture you might never see again - ME! I don't mind this one at all so, Here I am World! Hmm I look light haired and that I am not, no hair loss at all.
