Christmas Collector's Alley #4

I can't even get to my Bloggie and see all the Christmas eye candy that must be out there.  But, I snuck away to show ya'll more peeks at what has been going on around here.  Can you remember my dream of a HUGE nutcracker?? 

This is my DEAR buddy and her son dragging it out of their car.  She had her Daddy buy it and get it down from Jefferson, TX to surprise me and my Hubby as a house warming gift!!  Is that sweet or what??
Gotta hot glue his horn back on and set him up at the front door.
Here is my master piece!!
The Game Room tree for my boys to enjoy.  I hear they lost their big game but we still love them. :)

It all started with a plastic tub collection of bronze, burnt orange, black and silver balls at Hobby Lobby 40% off.  I got a ream of beautiful ribbon for $5.  I used their baseball hats and street signs.  I used my lightbulb creation.

Oh, and that is just 1 pack of white lights and in the middle a pack of Halloween orange ones too.  The tree skirt is 2 pillowcases courtesy of Granny!
Ya'll are gonna have to consider this UT collection this weeks addition to Christmas Collector's Alley.  My poster says Nov but let's use it for Dec 1st -7th or this post may never exist.  Love ya Debbie Dabble for inspiring me to make it happen.
