This is a collection of some of my treasures.  I love color!  The Christmas tree on the top right was handmade by my mother in law years ago.  She was going to throw it away!!!   The fat policeman cookie jar I found at a flea market for ten dollars.  I love that thing!  
Color makes me happy!  I filled an old jar with quilt scraps from my sewing room.  The old buttons in the bottle were from two tins that were going to be thrown away.  The other jars have candy in them sometimes...but I really like candy and the jars are usually empty!
The green teapot is one of my treasures that I found at a consignment store that I frequent OFTEN.  I usually bring in my stuff and just trade it for more stuff!  FUN FUN FUN!   
The vintage  Santas also belonged to my mother-in-law.  I cant believe she had these in the throw away box!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at my house!  The weather has been too wet here to play outside in my garden and potting shed, so I'm having fun decorating the house.  My decorating has 'no rules'.  I go from vintage, to whimsical, to traditional, to modern.  I guess the only rule is that it has to make me smile!  I hope you enjoy!

Looks like you have fun collecting like many others of us.
Nicely arranged.
I LOVE THE CABINET!!!!! I've been looking for a year now
for something similar. I want to paint it an antique red
and then display my Coca Cola antique collectables.
Thanks for sharing. Posted: 10:17 pm on December 14th
