A Couple of My Favorites

Just a few of my favorites. This is something my daughter did with the 3 grands. These will be treasured for many years to come. I use them each year and place them very carefully so they don't fall. Maybe this is something simple that your grandma would appreciate and is very inexpensive.



My new Mikasa bargain. I so love cut glass and Mikasa is one of my favorites. Purchased this at a store that is going out of business and was marked down to $14.

I only have a couple of santa's and am looking forward to adding new ones. The one on the right I just purchased for $8 at Ross stores. I love Ross - my favorite store. The santa in the center is a Christoper Radko I purchased at least 15 years ago on QVC. I love the detail that goes into a Christopher Radko. The santa on the left was a gift from the Family Dollar store some 20 years ago.

And look what I found under the tree. (I hate the red eye - couldn't figure out how to remove it) He hasn't eaten an ornament since I moved them up.

I am so looking forward to spring now. Can't wait to get those gardens looking all pretty again.
Hope you all have a great day and stay warm.

I love all of your Christmas ornaments. I agree. The ornaments made by grand-kids are the most special, but that Radko is beautiful. Little Buddy looks so cute with his new styling, and I am so glad that Ex is improving.

Your ornaments made by your grandchildren are just precious! LOVE those Santas! There is a Ross store getting built in town and I am TOO excited!!!

I'm glad Buddy is leaving the ornaments alone now. If only my Midnight would.......

I am so glad Buddy is being such a good boy! He is cute with his new cut. I want to shave my Cloe's nose but no one here will let me.

Becky: A gift from grandchildren is always special. Buddy looks awfully guilty.

Why is it our babies always hide under the tree? Maybe a throw back to a more primitive age in the genes?

Mildred said...

Everything is adorable, especially Buddy! Looks like he is going to wait for Santa!

Special Becca... You have a good start on your Santa collection... Just add a few each year!!!! Like my angel collection, it will GROW...

The home-made ornaments are much more precious to us than the bought ones. I know your cherish yours.

AND--you got a fabulous buy on your cut glass. Gorgeous.

The ornaments from your Grandkids are great - don't ya just love when they make ya something?
You really did get a steal on your Mikasa and you filled it beautifully. I'm sure glad Buddy isn't eating ornaments anymore - that was scary!!! Your Santa collection is a great start - I'm sure you'll have many more in no time!
