christmas collections

Over the years I have tried patiently to downsize the size of our "stuff". When it comes to Christmas, it seems to be a matter of collecting what's important.

Witness our collection of Nutcrackers. Each one is different, and every year we get more. I also own the Nutcracker Ballet on tape, and adore the music, so this really works. P. #2 tried to crack a real walnut with a couple of these this year...alas, they are mainly decorative. My favorite is the cat. Like many others, it's a thrifted specimen.

Candles are another collection. The first Winter Solstice spent here at the Ranch was very, very dark: no power, as we were revamping the solar system. Hence the tradition of buying out every local Mexican market of seven day candles, the more variety the better.

Snowglobes are so magical! Every one is like it's own little world...the themes overlap, yet each one remains special. We enjoy these every year, and welcome more additions.

bien sur.

Happy Holidays to everyone...Merry Christmas and Joyous Solstice to all.
