As we celebrate the Season, I have many small scenes
around my home that remind me of family, friends
and the birth of the Saviour.
Here are few...
|Christmas cards are addressed and mailed out today.|
|A New Winter Wonderland scene in place.|
|So happy I have this vintage piece in my kitchen.|
I have a collection of Annalee dolls from my mother and
from TJ Maxx. Thank you very much.
I almost bought a cat doll this year that looked just like my "buddy" (cat).
He had a red St Nick hat on his head...but I resisted because heaven knows
I really don't need to add to anymore of my Christmas "stuff".
|This is vintage abt 1990, my mom created this vignette upon|
a sprayed styro-foam platform.
|These dolls were purchased in the last three years. |
Annalee dolls all have the same basic painted face design.
|The Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus are sitting chairs that my mom had collected. |
She had an elaborate vignette at one time and some of these
toy props are from her collections. The two elves are new.
|It has been a tradition with me to force narcissus (paper whites) bulbs |
the day after Thanksgiving.
Here we are in week 3 of December, hoping these bloom by Christmas.
|I love the smell of pine and when you have an artificial tree (heaven forbid),|
I bring fresh cut pine boughs in.
This is in my entry of my home.
