Re: What holiday/winter decor do you collect?

[ Edited ]

I have Steinbach and Erzgebirge nutcrackers and smokers, which fill our living room mantel, a large collection of vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, and mercury glass trees and ornaments, which I display on our dining room mantel.  

 

I'll try to post some pictures.

I collect hand carved wooden Santas - no resin. Over the years have sought them out on my travels. The collection includes Santas from many cultures.

 

I lost my husband 16 years ago and each year I chose a new glass angel for the tree in his memory.

Re: What holiday/winter decor do you collect?

I've had a thing about chubby adorable snowmen for a number of years.

The last two or three years I got hooked on owls.

This year I'm into silver and white stuff. Oh, heavens, gotta' stop. Had to have a silver reindeer and silver sleigh and, and, and.,..

I need an intervention. Anyone free?

Wow! That is a first for me! I've never seen a MG snowman before. Love it! 

 

Where was Valerie on this one?


@Mominohio You'd think Valerie would have done something like this.  The thing is HUGE.  I only wish he had some arms.

@RazorSharp  He's beautiful!  I have a sizable snowman collection, but I have never seen a mercury glass snowman. Smiley Happy

Re: What holiday/winter decor do you collect?

The only things I've ever collected are Santa and snowman ornaments, snow globes and lighthouses.   I kept my snow globe and lighthouse choices within a certain style, until friends started gifting me with items for my collection, that just didn't fit.   The odd stuff contributed to my stopping the collecting of snow globes and lighthouses, but I am always adding to my ornament collection---only my husband and children know I collect those, and know it doesn't apply to every ornament decorated with a Santa or snowman.

@IlliniGirl88  Your trees are beautiful.  I like the wall color also, do you know the name of the color, or what pallete/spectrum it is in?
