Starting the Christmas Decorating

 
When I think about starting to decorate for Christmas, my first thought always goes to these two items.
 
Many years ago, my husband bought me this Thomas Kincade picture for Christmas.  I had always loved this one.  Then the next year, he ordered the house in china to match the picture. 
 
I love Thomas Kincades paintings.  They are always so nostalgic and remind me of my childhood.
 
The world lost a wonderful person when he passed away. 
 
I probably will always get this set out first at the holidays.
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

Yes, it was indeed sad, to lose such a gifted artist and human being. So nice that you have those special treasures. I know you will cherish them always.

I love that you have the picture and the same house that is in the picture. What a sweet gift to receive from your husband!

The Christmas of 1982 he had Silent Night come out, and I was able to get it. Mine also has a music box on the back of the frame. It's the picture of a little cabin in the snowy woods. The house with the picture is very nice. We lost a very gifted artist.

I fell in love with Thomas Kincaid's work the first time I saw it. I have a small print, and a small wooden music box that opens to reveal a Christmas scene, both gifts from one of my daughters. I treasure them. Your china house is beautiful. They make a lovely display together. Your John is a sweetheart, you are blessed.

Thomas Kincade was a gifted artist. It is a shame he is gone already. Your picture and house are beautiful.

It's always fun to get out our treasured Christmas items. Each year, we have fun unwrapping each Christmas ornament as we decorate our tree. Almost every one seems to hold special meaning.
