I am always on the lookout…..

for pixies and elves!

I went to 2 of my most favorite stores in this area for their Christmas Open house.

Are you sure you don't have any little kids running around. Maybe in your heart. Your home would be a childs dream come true. You are so creative. Would you please come and decorate my home for me and bring your little friends too.

The elves are so cute. They remind me of my mom as she always used lots of elves in her Christmas decorating.

And thanks for the movie recommendations from the earlier post. I'll check them out.

I loved the photos of the wild turkeys. When we lived in CO we saw wild turkeys there.

My daughter and I love your bear. She keeps thinking it's for sale! "Can I get the bear? Can I get the bear?" she keeps whining! :) Cute stuff!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Diane,

I love your mischievous little elves, also your new Bear in her green velvet.
It is looking a lot like Christmas at your place.

Hugs

Cute new banner :)
I see you have some busy elfs. I love their little smiles. Your Boyd's bear looks so warm in her little hat and coat! Snuggly, I should say.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Christmas wouldn't be complete without a few Elves to complete the decor. I think they're sooo adorable. How fortunate to find a trio of toy makers.

When my boys were young I would give them Boyd's Bears ornaments in their stockings. Boyd's Bears are the cutest and have such great details in their features.
It's fun to let the inner child come out to play from time to time.

Sweet Holiday Wishes,
Sara

Now those elves bring back some great memories! Like from the early 60s...

Oooooh! Those sound like neat places to visit! I will have to make some notes so that next time I am in your 'neighborhood' I can visit them - that is if you don't mind a fellow blogger visiting your special places. Those elves are very nostalgic looking. My mom and dad had some similar to them when I was growing up. Cool!

Stacey said...

Last year was the first time that I remember seeing those cute little elves. They are so adorable!

I like the movies you listed too. Last night I watched Love Actually. It was pretty cute...had me in tears at the end. Happy tears of course.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Isn't it great to bring out our Christmas things each year? I must use a few of my Boyd's bears this year. :)
It looks like you are really on your way to being all decked out! BEAUTIFUL!
That little doll is darling!
