My New Christmas Blog and Christmas Collector's Alley

I have decided to start a third blog, dedicating it to my enjoyment of most all things Christmas. I will tweak the design of the blog as I go along, but thought I would just ‘jump in’ and get started. My first post will be linked to Christmas Collector’s Alley #2, a blog event hosted by Denise Marie at Christ is the Heart of Christmas.

Among my Christmas collections is the category of items which feature Christmas Trees.
My Christmas tree collection started with Spode "Christmas Tree" dishes. I bought two cereal bowls in summer 1970 in England – one for me and one for my sister whose birthday is December 25. Soon, I started to buy the dinner plates, mugs and other pieces. Each year I added to the collection. I also got some as gifts for my sister and her Christmas-loving family. Actually, this sister was born on Christmas morning and her youngest son was born on Christmas night!
Here are some of the dishes on the countertops and stove during Christmas holidays 2007:



Besides the "Christmas Tree" dishes, I’ve gathered tree-shaped figurines, salt and pepper sets, trinket boxes and mini trees.
Here is the tree collection gathered on top of the microwave at the end of holidays 2006.
The following photos show the kitchen d├ęcor for Christmas 2007. the pine hutch served as display space for the Spode "Christmas Tree" dishes supplemented by Bordallo Pinheiro and tree figurines.



The microwave displayed a number of tree-shaped items.



Please visit Denise Marie for links to more collections. You may also post your own until October 7.
