I have acquired a few new props this year so it was time to change up our family room Christmas decorations.
I’ve had this cubby for a long time from a trip to Walnut, Iowa’s Father’s Day weekend antique walk with Terri Larson.
I love the old Japan Santas. Some of them seem to be telling eachother jokes! My bear Peppermint holds a tiny brown bear by Susan McCay.
This cubby was purchased at Urban Finds from the Rusty Pumpkin. It contains a bunch of my antique sheep and houses and some of my own Santas and a bear. I don’t remember where I found the cheese box. Santa on Sheep by Iowa artist Christy Robb. Santa Bear by Missouri artist Edna Bossert who has retired from bear-making.
Once again, I have placed the tall white tree in the corner of the hearth filled with my collection of Steiff ornaments. The picket fence was from Junk Jubilee Jingles and the sign is from Once Upon a Barn. The Linda Dorr bear wears a pair of red suede lederhosen I discovered at Found Things. The realistic Westie is from Hansa. The red bear under the tree is by Pat Murphy. I love the little wooden train that I got at Urban Finds in December.
Here’s the Christmas Cabinet:
