....really i am not. but i wanted to post a few knick knacky christmas collections that i have. plus a few miscellaneous pics that i couldn't really categorize.
first of all and most importantly....center on our mantle in our great room.
i am not a collector of willow tree, but i picked up this nativity scene from craigslist this past july. i bought it from a family that was really hurting from being laid off and this is one of the things they sold to help make ends meet. i often think of that family and pray for them. from july on this was displayed in various areas of our log home. i never did pack it away after i bought it.
btw......i have seen so many of these nativity scenes on everyone's blogs this year. i wonder how many of us have this particular willow tree?
i have also received a few willow tree figures, usually for my bday from friends and family.
here is the small collection that i have. i am amazed the poinsettia cuttings are still holding up in water after 10 days of being massecred.
there are two more small collections that i have related to christmas. really i don't like to be knick knacky......:)
here is the human backhoe's xmas tree....ummmmm, that is in the guest bathroom....hehehe. it is a collection of hallmark's pickup trucks over the last fifteen years. someday, i hope to have a red and white 1960 ford f100. someday......
the other collection i have is of log home style disney ornaments. yes, we are a disney family. we proudly call disneyworld our second home. and no i don't fill my home with any other paraphanalia related to mickey....remember i am not a knick knacky person. but, ask me any question related to disney and the town of orlando...and i am your answer girl.
oh yeah, on the last two trees did you notice the barbwire garland? actually it's a plastic representation of it that i bought on clearance after halloween.
a collection of my cranberry orange jam i canned earlier in november....
next is a couple pics from our kitchen. first is our candle chandelier that is over our kitchen island. simply wrapped with red berry garland.
then, a few pieces of mikasa ultra dressed up for the holidays.
finally, a bathroom pic again....hehehe. soap and lotion from the guest bathroom.
thanks for reading.....i have so enjoyed looking at everyone's blogs to see how you decorate........
