A bit random , this group, but mostly snowmen and candle holders
Snow globe train and other snow globes (the larger ones are musical) My favorite musical one is the centre one it plays The dance of the Sugar Plum fairy from the Nutcracker Suite
A ballet I saw several times as a child with my mom
The gingerbread village I commented on and liked on a visit to Hammond's Candy factory in Denver several years ago with my friend Linda. She remembered ,and ordered it for me the following year!
And a variety of musical ornaments some from hubby and the wooden horse one is one from when I was quite young , from my mom. She would buy us one or two decorations per year ,so when we moved out we would have our own Christmas display .
in the mail !!!!!!!
And is Proudly displayed at my entrance! Thanks to Jennifer Mac Neill-Traylor
of The Mare's Tales - Gypsy Mare Studios for sending it so quickly!
I mentioned also that my Nativity was not displayed this year , the old decorated shoe box that has housed it this many years , was on its last legs (I think I made it when I was about 18 )
When I took it down last year I tried to clean it up, and sadly it really fell to disarray then . So I was hoping to make something new for it .
Well time got away on me and I had nothing done . Martin said "oh maybe when I am home next time I can help you with it ."
Well I went to work yesterday , came home in time to take him to the airport , and what should I find??
Hand made from fence boards he cleaned up , to make it look more authentic...
Better than a shoe box , and made with love!
There you have my Christmas treasures , the ornaments and the treasured people who help make the memories !
Stay safe and warm
