My favorite xmas decorations are..

the old figured Christmas candles. They remind me of my childhood Christmas'. My mom had a whole collection of them and unfortunately they were discarded so now I am always on the lookout for pieces to rebuild a new collection! They just make me smile!

Hi Cheryl!
I love those old candles too! In fact, there is an entire box full someplace around here...I think in the basement...may have to go digging tonight after work! I hope that you are enjoying this holiday season with your family!
Take care, Laura

That little one was the first one to sell. I liked him so much I had to give him a special place on the blog!

MINE! My mom also had loads of the old Tavern candles. I would play with them as a child...we had lots of choir boys and girls and would stack them on home made risers. Thanks for such a sweet memory. Sea Witch
