and sometimes other places
The reindeer shadow casting candle holder beats any Christmas decoration I've seen, hands down, and two thumbs up.
Yes, let those treasures out from their boxes! I will soon be doing the same thing.I so agree with you on the Christmas reading choices, and am still looking forward to reading your book as a Christmas gift to myself.xo
That has really got me in the mood to get out my own bits and pieces - they all have a story to tell, don't they? I love the Dylan Thomas poem it is one of my favourites.
I have one of those little vintage guys like your musicians, only he has a pinecone body and he hangs on the tree. Lovely pix!I'm looking forward to my copy of Jane in Winter! :)
I love these little guys. When I go back home for Christmas I like to set my parents little santas, snowmen, etc. figures up and take pictures of them and then add in something random like a beanie baby for laughs.
Wow, so glad you found the satanic elves playing tamborines! Can't wait to see them in person. Did you get a tree yet?
love the santa - he looks sssooooooo happy!
Love the funky Santa- The more ridiculous the Santa the better, I say. Vintage Japanese christmas ornaments are a favorite as well. Sort of quirky and not quite jolly. I am inspired to get out our box and rifle through for only the best bits- anything common will not do.
I'm leaving for the Caribbean in less than eight hours, and I still haven't read my Capote or Thomas!Oh well; I guess that, like your cherished Xmas bits and pieces, they will wait to be dusted off NEXT year.(How do you get that lovely glowing candle effect? Photographic wizardry!)
It's the little things that bring a smile even just once a year... the little things in life can be huge!
I love that reindeer and its shadow, just wonderful. I am off for the weekend and here's wishing that you have a great weekend and happy shopping, eating, photographing and decorating :)
My little decorations are coming out tomorrow to join yours!
The reindeer looks scared of his own shadow!
Your Chrissy display is sweet. I'm very fond of those adorable musicians. I'm thinking that jolly santa of course has been hitting the brandy. He looks like he is about to topple over. Ho Ho Hoooooooooooooh!Thud! :D
These are so evocative and make me very happy! I love taking all these little things out from years past. Thanks for the reading links, too.Happy Christmas
Funny to think about all the little bits and pieces living in boxes during the year...
I love this snow falling in your blog
Love the snow. Am still wondering how you did that. Came across your blog yesterday and I have a book to recommend to your readers. It will take them back to 1950s New York. Very funny story about kids growing up in the City. "108th Street" Keep up the fine work. thanks
Hey, you found the Christmas decorations! I like how everything reflects where you've traveled, Elizabeth. And what a fun home you're going to have this Thursday!
Looks good; I saw this site with some useful info on Dining Table. Hope it helps...
I look forward to hearing from you!
