This Year's Tree Topper

This tree spire will be topping our tree this year. We found it at an antique store in Carpenteria just after Christmas last year. It is similar to the spire my family had when I was a kid. I will post pictures after we have decorated our tree.

Twelve Days of Christmas First Day Cover

Here is a FDC I got at a Stamp Show in Santa Barbara several years ago. This was an interesting stamp series from The United Kingdom issued in 1977. It has an insert with information on the 12 Days of Christmas, the artist who designed the stamps, and the artist who designed the FDC.

It's That Time of Year

Time to get out the Christmas items and start decorating. Ours are still up in the rafters in the garage but here is a decoration my parents just gave me (they got it at a church craft sale). I'll post some pictures when we have the decorations up.
