Just a Few of My Favorite Things...

Do you have those few, certain Christmas decorations that you just love from year to year? Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite decorations. They are not fancy or expensive in any way. They simply make me happy.
I love this lighted Christmas Angel. I bought her at a craft show about 7 years ago. I noticed her bow must have been chewed on my by kitty's, so I may have to try and replace it sometime. For now, I've just tried to reshape it.
I'm not a huge fan of the color red, so when I found this White Santa about 15 years ago, he just had to come home with me. My sister added the little ornaments to his tree and the birdseed sachet he's carrying came from a friend many years ago too.
The true meaning of Christmas, pure and simple.
I found this trio of lighted trees around 8 years ago on sale at the grocery store of all places. I love the simplicity of it and it's the perfect backdrop for the Nativity. Then over the years I found the pretty capis shell stars to put on top of the trees (too bad they aren't lighted) and the clear acrylic star ornaments add more shimmer to the whole thing I think. Those snowmen are just cute and cuddly. I don't have a big house, so this little set up has moved to different places over the years, depending on how I've moved things around each year. This year it's tucked into this corner. (I suppose I should have moved the corner shelf out from behind them, oh well, next time). But, where ever it lands each year, I always enjoy looking at it during the Christmas season. What are some of your favorite
Christmas decorations? :)

I love your treasured things. Kittie marks are the best thing, as we treasure them as well. Happy Holidays Michelle.
