Christmas Collector's Alley #2
Well, here we are in the HEART of Halloween territory thinking of Christmas!! lol
I could have never thought that I'd be looking to close on a new home by the end of Oct. We've been in Beagle Run Cottage for exactly 17 years. I'm looking around holding back tears as I remember all the projects we've done but we can't agree on an addition. So, we took advantage of the soft market and LOW interest rates. We are walking by FAITH and not by sight!! Some are letting FEAR reign in our area but we are refusing to worry. I'll be decorating a new to me home for Christmas...so we'll get to go thru it all together..you all and me.
I was out and never intended to but got Lil Guy's 2010 christmas ornament along with mine, Hubby's and oldest a whole bucket of non-breakables for a UT tree. Can't wait to show all that later. Hobby Lobby was doing Christmas ornaments at 40% off.
Here is the ornament I got yesterday to go with this month's collection.
Meet Mr. Nutcraker
blown glass version (plastic)
This is the largest 1 we own. My mom got it for him 1 year, after-Christmas clearance.
There are too many of them!
Pier 1 had wrapping paper and boxes last season but I was too cheap to pay their prices for them. I could have gone crazy for William Sinoma's brand of dishes too.
I've gotten them over the years for my precious son.
My mom gets them for him too.
I didn't even get these guys out of the box for you but they are nice sized.
This is his favorite out of all of them.
I got it last year at World Market as his 2009 ornament.
He's a Roman Soldier. My guys are really into wargames and historical references to war. What boy doesn't love a spear or hatchet. lol
Scarecrow is my fav. My mom got him and the Tin Man from OZ for him. I've never met a scarecrow I didn't like and he sure is different than most of them.
He wanted me to take a stylized picture for ya'll.
They all start to look alike after a while. lol
This is 1 of my fav's. I need to clear coat spray it so it is shiny. He painted it himself several years ago.
His best buddy next door made him 1 a few years ago out of clay pots. She worked real hard on it but it fell over and broke. :( I think it would be fun to have a party and have all the kids paint their own and eat Christmas cookies after.
