My Winter Wonderland with Precious Moments

I love Precious Moments figurines.  They are so dainty & each one has a special meaning.  My hubby & kids have gotten me several over the years, as have other family & friends.  I keep them in my curio cabinet in my living room.

I went to a yard sale summer before last, and came across Precious Moments in boxes that had Christmas buildings on them that totaled $12.  I glanced in the two boxes quickly & decided to get them.  The young woman selling them told me her mother~in~law had given them to her & her kids wouldn't leave them alone.  She was keeping the buildings.  Not until I got into the car & really looked at them, did I discover how much I really had.  There were 14 separate figurines.  Some even had their prices still on them ranging from $17.50 to $25!  There was some damage on three of them and an extra little bird that had broken off something not in the box.  It was a shame, but I still got a great deal!  I have had them packed until this Christmas because of moving and I love how they look displayed on a shelf in my family room.  The shelf has a light above that casts a glow & everything sparkles.  I have added a couple more figures that I got at garage sales this summer for 25 cents a piece.  I know to many, Precious Moments aren't exciting, but to me...well, I love 'em!

So here is my display of Christmas Precious Moments, with some of my bottle brush trees, a few buildings, and lots of sparkly tulle.  My Little Winter Wonderland...
I also have the mini nativity with the grandma figure kneeling and praying.  They are in a separate shelf.  The picture isn't great, but you get the idea...
Hope you enjoyed my little collection.  Do your collections bring you joy or are they just dust catchers?  I purge things I don't want anymore to make room for the things I enjoy.  Have a wonderful week!

Precious Moments are, well Precious! Especially when you think of all the joy they bring. That really was a deal you got, both times.

Cindy, I know you've heard it all before but God bless you and Thank you for all the prayers that you continue to say for my family. Just when I think things are looking up we find out someone else is suffering or even Nadine has a set back. Your prayers are so precious to use, so much more than I could ever say.

Lots of love and warm big hugs...
