More Christmas!

I can't believe there is less than a week to Christmas! I'm slowly getting everything done. We're making cookies Sunday but I haven't even started the dreaded wrapping yet! How are you doing?
This is the top of my secretary. It's a favorite piece from my Mom's and I have some Christmas bells from her bell collection and a bead angel she made in it. What I wanted to show you are these figurines. I had seen these priced quite reasonable in the Country House catalog but didn't order them. This summer I found them in a gift shop on clearance, a couple dollars each!
They are designed from vintage Christmas cards. I love them and hope to add a couple more pieces.
I also have two more filled boxes to share. This one is on the wall in the side entry, decorated for the season.
I found this vintage stocking at a sale and had to have it! I decided to use it in a box this year. This box is larger so it sets on the floor next to my lighted pine cone basket.
Thanks for stopping by for Show and Tell. To see more posts visit Cindy's Romantic Home.

I was thinking the same as Darla - how long it takes you to put the stuff away :-)

I haven't wrapped Christmas gifts yet (some aren't bought yet either!). I have baked several dozen cookies, though. I baked chocolate chip cookies and peanut blossom cookies. I plan to bake brownies, small loaves of bread (e.g., banana) and at least one other cookie variety.
