This is my coffee table, well it's really a trunk. It was one of our very first purchases at a street fair years ago. It's decked out for the holidays now but the rest of the year I keep fresh flowers and family photos on it. Do you see the sweet little candle boot? It was a Christmas gift from Lisa years ago.....her dad took her shopping when she was just a little girl and this is what she chose for me. I love it and would never in a million years think of burning it.
Just a few Santa's from my collection. The little one on the skis is my favorite....oh, I'm not sure, I like them all. Most are from my honey but I did buy the one in the white sleigh.
Feather trees with Santa and old fashioned reindeer's. The reindeer with the little red ties around their necks were my father's when he was a little boy as were the sleigh and Santa.
This is part of my Dickens Village, I love the old world look of the buildings and the clothing on the little people. When I see this village all set up it reminds me of the play A Christmas Carol by Dickens, one of my favorites. Honey and I are attending a matinee this Sunday,and I'm so looking forward to it. This is the 2oth anniversary of the production and I see it every year.....it's just tradition.
Happy weekend to all, and may the spirit of Christmas be forever in your heart......Linda
