    I LOVE the Holt Howard collection. Everything here is wonderful. I scored a vintage Christmas cardboard fireplace with an orange light behind the flames. It’s fabulous!

    Oh, oh, oh…whoever found the Santa Sleigh directions at the hoarder’s house – can we think of some way to reproduce the pages or source them? We currently have 2 panels of elves that need a little TLC and I remember my Dad taking up pretty much the entire downstairs making the Nativity scene including Wise Men and camels.
    Oh, to do something like this again! We’ve got a year! Whaddya say, whaddya say? Who’s with me?!
