More treasures of the season

I never get tired of dragging out Christmas decorations and usually get so many the house looks cluttered (per my family) LOL
Oh well it  makes me happy to show off more little things I am working on . I got all my Christmas cards sent out. I know a lot of people don't send cards anymore. I like to send them to special people and my family in other states. I am a card collector I have maybe 50 boxes of cards.

I had a surprise at my front door this morning, at 6:00 am I called my sister who drives into Columbia every day for work and I call her just to see what the weather is out on the roads and this morning she said I left you something on your front porch !! OMG it was a Yankee candel Citrus & Sage my favorite, it was wrapped al Christmasie so I put it under the tree. Then she had a piece of home made walnut cake (omg) I can make 3 days of treats out of it (small bites)

These are 3 little angels that was a surprise for me in an auction box of things I had got last summer didn't know they were in the box till I got home and started digging always fun to find good things

only tree lights on

some of my vintage reindeers on the tree
         snow baby on his airplane                                                    

 little tree in a chamber pot LOL
I put some of my vintage Shinny Brite balls in the tray , I usually put them in a large glass punch bowl to display them. I have several boxes of Shinny Brite balls in their original boxes I have picked up at estate sales

 just treasures  in a jar here , my little glitter boot with a tree in the top of it


  These treasures are all on my work table in the studio

my little bitty shinny brite balls in a jar and my white puffy tree I got last year at Target after Christmas sale
                     I love this ribbon with music notes on it I got at a local antique shop before it closed                                                                                     
  Now I have a few more things to show for my next post also I am cleaning some silver ladles
           Merry Christmas to one and all
