    Here are pictures of my Christmas collections. I collect Bells and have been given a couple of bells by a really sweet board member and I bought some of the bells that Cute makes! I have a bell or two!!

    Then I love angels. I love my Angel choir!

    And I love the 50s flocking on the reindeer of that era. I was born in 55 and my mom was an antique collector and dealer so I settled on this collection a long time ago!
    I am always adding to it. I find them at junk shops sometimes.

    Wow what a collection! Do you collect only old (antique) bells or also bells from different places?

    Super collection and the best part is the grandkids will remember and treasure them always, I bet.

    I like the old especially as my mom says- you can't get those any more. They are hard to find.
    But I like bells of all sorts. I have hand crocheted ones my grandma made and some friends have made and I like just about anything if it is a bell. I saved a couple of bells my grandpa had sitting on his kitchen window when we cleaned out his house. One is a cow bell. and some of them are swiss bells.

    How special-hope those two great boys always have fond memories of decorating with them-just a thought, but you might take a photo of really special ones and give the background of them so all that isn't lost.

    Great suggestion Jill. I will have to do that. I know my mom has stories about all the things she has collected and she is always saying now remember this or that and I know I won't! I keep telling her to write it down.

    What wonderful treasures you have. I also collect angels but have no where near as many as you.
