A FEW THINGS TO SHARE

I'm really enjoying this photo of my tree.

Yes, the giraffe gets decorated too!

Look at these guys, they are just so cute. These belonged to my husband's Nana. I just love seeing these on my tree each year.

I thought that I would share my Nativities with you. You can click on the picture to make it bigger. The first one belonged to my parents and yes I even have one that is s'mores! I forgot to put my Jim Shore one in with these, oh well!

I can honestly say that I have too much stuff and it has really hit me hard this year. I'm not done yet but I hope to have a post ready for Monday to join in the house tour. I still have to set up my snow globes and plush! Maybe the tree with lighthouses and the Dept.54 cabins too. I am running on empty!! I still need to get my out of town pkgs. wrapped and shipped. Oh and I need to bake too!

how do you make your pictures do that? I want to do it but I do not know how. I did it once but it did not work. I love all that you have done in your house. We just got our tree yesterday.. I can't wait to decorate it today..

I, too, collect nativities. But, I only have about 8. Your tree is so pretty, too. It is so nice to have vintage ornaments that belonged to someone you knew!

I just really love all of those nativity sets! I had no idea you had that many. I like that one of them is actually a set of ornaments! :)

I did not even know that you HAD a giraffe! But now that I know you do - - - YES PLEASE! Decorate him! That scarf "makes" him so festive.

Merry Christmas.

I've only got one nativity scene and I cannot set it up: the cats will have Baby Jesus before I can stop them! I knitted them myself you see and they love anything knitted...

You have a great collection though!
