And a bowl full o' elves...

Each year I change around my Christmas decor and this year I put many of my vintage Christmas pieces on the mantle. Above are some Christmas girls from the late '50's. One is a bell and the other a candle holder.

My entry way always remains the same with stuffed snowmen and a garland on the bannister full of snowman ornaments.
These are some vintage snowmen salt and pepper shakers. The santa and sleigh behind them are one of the few pieces left from my childhood as is the gold pixie/elf. I received that from a friend back in 2nd grade and it started my collection of Christmas pixies/elves as seen below in what I call my "bowl full o' elves". The big guy in the center is named Leonard and is quite a bully with the smaller elves.
I've had the white elves for a while and was thrilled to find the big pixie with the polka dotted suit a few months ago. He fit right in.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone.
