I've been enjoying seeing other folks' Christmas decorations on their blogs so thought I'd share a few of mine. I haven't added any new one for many years. In fact, the Writer gave away all his and I gave away at least 50 percent of my Christmas decorations when we moved.
It has been fun finding just the right spot for each of them in our new house and I have a feeling they are not all in the right spot yet!
My dad made the wooden Swedish Christmas tree and the ornaments are from the 1930s and '40s. Some were my great aunt's.
I have several Santas, this being the smallest one. I bought him myself when The Writer and I had our first home and he is made of fabric and pipe cleaners.
The reindeer is from the 1950s, back when plastic was new and called celluloid. He is the only one left of a team held together with red ribbon and pulling a sleigh.
Three hand-carved tall Santas sit on the fireplace mantle on the right ...
and this one on the left.
The celluloid Santa on the right has a light inside. I think my parents bought him in the late 1940s for their first home.
I have eight of the small figures on the left, made of paper and pipe cleaners.
The rest of the gang -- made in Japan in the early '50s and purchased at Woolworths Dime Store for 10 cents. I just looked them up on EBay and they are going for $16.50 to 19.00. Nice to know, if I'm ever hard up enough to sell them!
(Don't ask me why the stocking stuffer second from the left has a bulbous red nose! I've always wondered myself.)
I have a few more to show you, but I'll save them until next time.
🎄🎄I hope you are enjoying your weekend!🎄🎄
