It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...Part 2 1/2!

I have quite a few small Christmasy vignettes in my house. We have a very small house, so little things work great.

The glittery houses are from Bath and Body. I got them at Goodwill for $1.50 each. The bottle brush trees, small santa, nativity and the wreaths were all together in a bag of goodies at Salvation Army. I think it was $1.00 for the whole bag. I have this displayed on the bottom shelf of a little desk that was my mom's when she was a child. It is in my dining room.

This little ceramic tree was made by me in 1976, the year I graduated high schiool! Boy, is it old! My mom and I took ceramic classes together. Her best friend owned the shop where we took classes. I have lots of good memories of us spending monday night together. We did this for years. Even after I got married. It is missing some of the lights. I am going to check Hobby Lobby to see if they sell them. Does anyone know? It doesn't seem to photograph very well. I have it on top of the little desk.

I got the hurricane candle holder on clearance at Target this fall. It was only $3.00(shh...I bought Heather one, too, for Christmas). The greenery was cut from a garland I bought at the Dollar Tree. The 3 santas were also in the bag from Salvation Army! It was full of goodies! This little pretty is on top of my china cabinet. Also, in the dining room.
