I started putting away some of the Christmas decorations and collections today. There was a tear or two. I hate it when the holidays come to and end.
Each year, I gather all the elves for a group photo shoot. Each year there are a few more including the ones that deliver the boys' presents on Christmas morning.
Each elf has a name and a story. I can't remember all the names, but the boys can.
This collage shows all of the Annalee elves. A few are new, but most came from eBay or thrift stores. Starry, Jingles, Ginger to name a few.
We have a group of vintage elves we call swingset elves:-)
This is our very special Pillowtop Elf.
Here are the rest of the vintage elves.
There's also a group of elves the boys and I collected at Michael's Craft Store. Ah...good memories there. For several years they came out with new versions of this elf face, but no more...too bad.
I've had this elf since I was a kid. I'm pretty sure it's the elf that started it all. My grandmother Long used to have an elf on the chain of her kitchen table chandelier. Although I can't find a picture to prove it, I'm pretty sure this is that elf.
