I don't know if you're like me, if you're not, that's OK, believe me... I never was one to gather much nick-knacks or seasonal decorations until the kids couldn't decide what to get me and I always said the only thing I really wanted was a tree ornament from each of my four kids at Christmas, because I really didn't need anything and I didn't want them to scour the planet for gifts for me... Now I have so many tree ornaments from all over the world as some of my kids are travelers. My Christmas ornaments all neatly stored in see through plastic bins. I have enough for two trees and last year I bought another Christmas tree on sale, that was already lit up and I gave it to my daughter because I would not have enjoyed it as much as she did. I knew that she was very busy and the thought of seeing her having to drag a tree all the way from the market in all that snow made me think that it was the right thing to do. It sets up in minutes and she was happy.
Some of you know me as a thrifty person. Now since I've started hooking, my favorite second hand store is Value Village. I go as often as I can, to look for wool skirts and pants and I take a stroll in the cookbook department, the Christmas department, the knic-knack department, the basket department, etc. Last year I started a small collection of snowmen and santas and I only pick those which I really like and I have an extensive of the best cookbooks too.
