Absolutely beautiful things. And I'd had no idea it was a holiday in the Netherlands. So, thank you. I enjoy your blog. Keep posting!


Way too darling on the decoration...love it!


Oh wow! My daughter's birthday is the same as Santa's. I can't wait to tell her :D

Love your collection!


Oh, that's so funny! I love the little dutch boy and girl. And I spot a glass with tulips on it too!
Thank you for timing this so thoughtfully, I think we'll have a wonderful pakjesavond (both tonight with my in-laws and tomorrow night with my own family).

I love your Santa & jadite shelf. I have a collection of Santa mugs that would match many you have on your shelves. I didn't put them out this year because I'm a grouchy Christmas decorator and a REALLY grumpy put-it-awayer! It is lonely doing it by yourself while stepping over your family. Whaa Whaa Whaa!


What a great display! You should be on Top Design - Christmas Edition!! xo, suzy


Adorable as always! The Dutch kiddos are darling, and so is the rest...


Oh my gosh Barbara. How adorable!!!! Your photos should be in a book. It all looks so cute and cheerful and the wrapping paper is darling too.

Keep it coming :-)



AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I SOOOOO LOVE THE JADITE/SANTA SHELF!! It makes me so happy to look at. :) Oh, and I received my Etsy order, and I lurve it immensely. I can't stop staring at the wee elf. Sigh. Thanks for the lovely eye candy on both counts. xo


I put my Santa cups out this year for the first time in years. I don't have a gemstone eyed one though. Oh, sad, sad me.

We are studying Christmas Around the World, and Sinterklaas left a present for my son today. A book about Santa!

Oh, I love the combination of the jadeite and the bright red! Hmm, maybe I need to go get mine out and do a wee bit of redecorating. :)


This is all so beautiful! I love the santas and you've arranged everything so beautifully! Your photos always look so friendly and comforting, thanks for sharing!


I love it all- I se your little green canister w/the tulip lid like mine there among all of your other wonderful things! I am feeling so jealous because I don't have a white shelf like yours to put my Fire-King on with Santas to add red to the mix, etc, etc! When you do it, everything looks SO fabulous together.


Just beautiful!! I love all of you items every time I click!! And your Santa paper today is great!!!


I love the way your jadite matches all the red Christmas items. The santa mug with the rhinestone, is

Great Post!

Once again you have nailed a wonderful holiday post. The jadeite and santa mugs are absolutely amazing- those two colors together...WOW! I collect santa mugs as well (does that surprise you?) and I love the ones with the jeweled eyes. Another of my favorites has a winky eye...I'll be posting holiday decorations soon. The craft sales are almost over for me...HALLELUJAH!

Your good wishes reached us, though I wasn't at my computer for about 2 days .... too busy with all the packing, the rhymes, the buying and I wondered....did you find anything in your shoe???

You have so many cool vintage things....

Your good wishes reached us...we had such a lovely night, yesterday! I hadn't been at my computer for about 2 days, I was so busy buying, packing, rhyming, but it was worth while. I wonder; did you find anything in your shoe??
This post is too good to be true, you have so much neat vintage stuff, I cannot believe it! You should be in a magazine or on tv!
