Favorites (Christmas)

From time to time, I’ll be posting a group of photographs of my favorite things. These Christmas decorations are from my husband’s family in Pennsylvania. My mother-in-law would set up scenes on the mantle piece and window sills around the house. I love the way one of the Santas has a kid leather beard, instead of the traditional cotton.

There are seven metal reindeer left in the set, some with bells and some so lame that they need help standing.

These glass ornaments are so delicate and are still stored in what looks to be their original box. 

This wooden angel candle holder is about 3″ tall.  I love her little head wreath.

And there’s a flock of sweet sheep and lambs, with their wooden legs worn and exposed.

  1. I think we all have a stash of family memorabilia that “has seen better days” but that grow more precious every year. When I look at the ornaments on our tree each year, I am reminded of my connection to Christmases past. Thanks for sharing your lovely collection.

  2. LOVE these and thanks, also for sharing.
    Have you read Tasha Tudor’s “Forever Christmas”?
    I just ordered a copy on-line . . . need to have this as part of our Christmas book collection.
    And, about those cheese straws . . . YUM!
