I really enjoy all of my holiday decorations. I think it's a shame they come out only once a year. For example, these little snowmen look so jaunty. For some reason they remind me of Gene Kelly dancing in "Singin' In The Rain".
I also love these little reindeer; they are posed so gracefully. I like their tiny red noses and their white fawn spots.
The snowmen and the reindeer are all vintage Gurley candles from the 1950s, which I have been collecting. I find them all so charming. Here are some more of them:
I like to see the top of the fireplace all lit up with lights like a little wonderland with Santas and candles.
Last year my mother gave me her nativity scene and asked me to display it for our family get-together. I like the details in it. The expressions on the faces, and the body language of the little animals.
Of course, there are little stuffed critters too. I have so many collections... I just can't resist them.
I just have fun with it all! And now I have to put it all away until next year!
