Favorite Things

I do enjoy the reunion with ornaments from Christmases past at this time of year. This little angel was my very favorite ornament as a child. I thought she was long gone, but my mother found her and gave her to me this summer.

I remember admiring her when I would come home from kindergarten each day. An important part of my routine was making sure that no Grinch had taken her while I was at school. Perhaps she's the source of my love for vintage pinecone elves. They take up residence in my Riviera dinnerware each December.

I highly recommend decorating your dishes!


  1. Just so cute! I remember your pics from last Christmas, they were so fun:@)

  2. What a delightful collection! I've never seen pine cone elves, but they are darling. I agree with your sentiment about looking forward to the reunion with the Christmas ornaments each year. For me, that is Christmas tradition. ~ Sarah

  3. Love the little elf that sits in the cup he's into mischief. Adorable collection.
