I'm referring the the snow globe belly Santas, of course.

oh, love this!! definitely had some ornaments and christmas goodies i could have entered! hehe


It was a stellar event -- something I have been looking forward to for weeks, and it certainly did not disappoint. The addition of the People's Choice categories was inspired (and very democratic on the part of the Academy).

Congratulations to all the winning ornaments!


I'm so excited! I actually got a category selected in only my second year of following the awards! I wish I had thought to write a little speech! "I'd like to thank Max Eckhard, without whom I would not have thought of the category..." I think I have a deer ornament, but it's a Bradford plastic one. I think you could have shown your little Gurley deer in that category, or a Santa and his reindeer Shiny Brite.... Oh next year is so far away!

Bravo I was in tears with the teapot's speech. Just lovely.

I am loving the "Best Merry Christmas" ornament, altho there were quite a few that were a close second for me. It may not surprise you, but I am not a fan of the elves either...Santa is my man and the elves pretty much disappear when I find them as well.


Oh, my. This was cute and oh so much fun!! LOVED it! Thanks for the smiles. - Kathy


Oh my, I've just spent a cup of coffee going through your post and rather enjoying my self. There has to be a vintage gene...something that draws us to those worn goodies. Such a great blog. Thanks for sharing!


how fun! hope things are well with you!! susan

I have been patiently waiting for this post. Just waiting has made my head spin. (get it? spun head?) This is where all that searching and digging and having to put up with cheez-it guy makes all kinds of sense. You should write a vintage ornament guide book, seriously. I would carry it with me to every estate sale.
PS I'm with you on the elves...and that teapot ornament makes my heart beat faster.


Like I say you inspire me. The teapot is just simply incredible. Absolutely amazing.


Thank you thank you Oodles--I am weeping openly at the inclusion of the knee hugging elf in your awards this year. I couldn't be any prouder if I were a knee hugger myself. But wait, maybe I am????


Whew, that was the most exciting Awards program ever and I didn't even have to get out of my pajamas!
xo, suzy

You are so very witty! I laugh through many of your posts for sure. I got ya. Those elves look as though they've been imbibing...something evil and very, very potent!

Jenny Sellars

Okay...the lame elf...I almost wet myself laughing so hard!!


While we very much enjoyed the show this year (and consumed a glass of wine and popcorn during the viewing) we see that once again Christmas Bears were shut out(we are going to make a move next year - maybe run over a few elves with Santa's sled, hrumphh). Back to the woods till next year -we WILL be in touch (and lobby with the academy for our own category -LOL).
Happy Holidays B. Hope you have a great one with your family and friends. Jewels


I just found your blog and really enjoyed all your beautiful vintage Christmas things! Brought back lots of memories!
Merry Christmas


I really covet some of those! (Like the snowman with legs and "Joyous Christmas." And then others...I don't covet so much. (Like creepy elf and wax Santa.) What a fun post!

Pam Fromuth

I want to spend the rest of my life with that German sheep. Great ceremony...next year are you going to cover the Vanity Fair party after the show? Please advise!

Kathy Uhrig

I LOVED this post and just mentioned it over on my post about my "newbie" vintage ornament collection. Thank you so much for all the inspiration and have a very Merry Christmas!
