Sweet little boys you found there. One definitely looks like a Hummel. Thanks for the links to fun giveaways, too.

I haven't begun Christmas decorating as yet ..still recovering from a full and bust Thaksgiving weekend!

You found some nice things...I love the "Joy of Cooking" cookbook!

Natasha said...

Wow, you did well to find that Joy of Cooking cookbook! I wonder why someone would give that away!

I agree with the other bloggers about your figurines looking like Hummels. My hubby inherited some porcelain Hummel figurines from his grandma and they look exactly like the ones in your picture!

Best wishes and happy week,
