This tree sits in the corner of the hallway next to the window on the second floor of my house. I had to purchase a bigger tree for my elf collection this year. I love these fun, kitschy knee hugger elves. I have expanded this collection to include funky flocked ornies. Also I am always looking for the handmade felt ornies, the ones that someone so meticulously sat and stitched with embroidery and sequins!
Mr georgiapeachez bought himself a new camera so these are my first pictures using it. Sweet! I only know how to use the auto and close up setting so far.
I can’t wait to open those pretty packages under the tree. Those are all for me! from my BFF Beth. I know they are something really special!
It’s true, come December I revert to being 8 years old! My 16yo has been infected by my holiday decorating virus. We are starting her christmas ornie hope chest this year. I want her to be equipped and ready to decorate her own tree when she leaves home!
I love this ornie. It is a ceramic egg that has been glazed and decorated. On the back it was signed in gold glaze "Pat ’75". I bought this in one of those grab bags of stuff that they always put together at the thrift store. I love those!! I get some of my best vintage ornies that way. The thrift store gets all this loose stuff donated so they just fill up a plastic bag with sort a kinda like items and put a crazy price on it. $1.98 or $2.97 or sometimes even $0.75!! It is worth it just to find 2 or 3 treasures in the bag.
