My Collection of Christmas little people.

Here they are, out of the loft and I was very glad to see them again. We don't have a Christmas tree in our house ! for years I have had a large bundle of tall Willow branches which I decorate with lights and fairies and elves and of course the baubles, it always looks lovely and has a lot of admiration from visitors. Then after Christmas it stands in the corner of the dining room with just the fairy light, and brightens up the room especially when we have people around for dinner.

I will probably only do another couple of posts this year and then start again when things get going in the New Year. I have almost finished the present shopping and wrapped up most of them. The cards have been posted, but I always forget someone, even though I do a list every year. So I have a few cards and stamps at the ready just in case.

Have a good week-end everyone.

These two little cuties are my buy this year, they have such silly faces I couldn't resist.

They are all very cute and festive. I plan to post up till Christmas Eve then I'll restart when I have something garden related to write about. I may though date a few posts to post themselves to usher in the New Year.

Nice collection, Doc.

By the way, I am still overwhelmingly impressed with your cards, even if you didn't draw those critters.

And thanks for the manure info.

This is my first Christmas were I am really trying to express myself. I have another angel for you (I'll post soon) I forgot about her, it's a tapistry by little old me so keep your eyes open!! xxx

Inspires me to go bring out Peter Rabbit and all his friends, which I had vowed not to do this year.

Maureen said...

Thank you KELLA & DARLA, for the comments.
PROSPERO I'm glad you are still impressed, and I hope the manure makes your plants grow well.

CARRIE I look forward to seeing your Tapestry.
NELL JEAN, get out Peter rabbit and friends and do post a photo when you do.

I love the willow branches ... very classy alternative to a Christmas tree! And your little people are adorable. You are so.o.o talented. xxoxx

Maureen said...

Hi Pam, ah thank you for your kind comment. The willow branches will have to be replaced next year I think, as they are getting a bit brittle. I need to buy nice fresh ones from the market in Winchester.
I hope you are well, must visit your blog !have a good week-end. xx

I love your Christmas little people, they all have such character. I'm done with my Christmas shopping, but I still have everything to wrap.
