Christmas treasures: pt 4

What I enjoy, what makes me smile?
FROGS! (and purple)
So when I saw purple garland, I knew it would go great with my singing Santa frog, and bell ringing Santa: (no, its not realistic, neither is a singing Santa frog, or SANTA for that matter:)

My mom gave me a frog each Christmas, so I wired them to a wreath where I can really enjoy them (see the mistle-toad, and frog angels?), little girl doll is from a dear cousin (love dollies too), Mr. and Mrs. Claus from an Uncle (poor Santa has lost his eye)

Frogs on the tree:

bottom right: Mistle-toad

Cute wreath! Reminds me of my beloved stuffed monkey collection I had growing up. :)

Thanks for visiting me.

What a great idea! I would never have thought of could also apply to any small collectibles. You have started problems now, I will be making wreaths of everything.

I had a frog living here for awhile. Loved that little fella. My grandson has a frog-themed bathroom, which he will very soon be sharing with sister! I got him a bath mitt that looks like a frog the other day too.

My Mom go the Teddies at a craft fair up in Big Bear Mountain, CA.

I am frog CRAZY too! I had a real one when I was a little girl. Now I just love the cute fake ones. Great idea with the wreath.
