Today, the last day of the Christmas in July week, I want to share some of my Christmas favorites with you.
And to start off, these lovely velvet, satin, lace and wax-faced angels from Germany. I am not sure of their age, but I do know they are O.L.D. They belonged to by grandmother and I can remember them from so very long ago.
This sweet one might just be my favorite..
Schwibbogen are also on the top of my list. They are curved pieces of wood that were traditionally illuminated with candles. However since the invention of electricity, you most find them with electric Christmas lights now. I just love this one withe the nativity scene.
Of course there are favorite ornaments. I think these are them right now. I've added to the collection since this picture was taken, so the tree is much fuller. Still wanting a wonderful black Indian vessel to set the tree in, but the joy is in the collecting -right? Jil Gurulé created these fabulous pieces.
And nothing makes me any happier than be surrounded by family.
And then let's not forget this year's favorite china pattern.. Lenox Holiday Tartan....
What are your favorites? I hope you enjoyed the week and came away with some ideas for your Christmas!
