This blog was an active endeavor for me for a bit – and then life got busy as I started my masters degree. I ended the Don’s Christmas URL, and thought I had shut this blog down. Looks like it stayed active. I accidentally stumbled up on it while researching some items for my collection.
To catch the world up, I finished my master’s all the while continuing in a limited form my collecting. I’m in the process now of updating the inventory, who knows what number I am up to. I was thinking of starting the blog back up, looks like I don’t have to- I still have this one!
Can’t wait to get back in the swing of things.

Sorry if you have been visiting and not finding this site – I switched carriers for the url, and the transfer meant the site was unavailable for about a week. I should be back to posting tomorrow, and the break actually helped – I have three trees up, and one more to go. Look forward to lots of pictures soon of the 2008 display!

I thought I would countdown to Halloween with some of my more spooky ornaments. I don’t really have a “Halloween Tree,” but I do have a few ornaments that fit with the season. Here is a devilish head created by Inge Glas from Germany. Purchased in 2007 from the Christmas Haus in New Oxford, PA.

I have been trying to concentrate more on designer class ornaments the last two years. Here is “Sojourning Santa Bordeaux” by Patricia Breen (my only Breen so far.)
