And a partridge in a peartree.....

I have come to realize that I like the 12 days of Christmas decor, and crafts!  A few years ago, I fell in love with Crate and Barrel's 12 days of Christmas ornaments.  Paper mache 
ornaments are painted with the 12 days of Christmas in a whimsical way.  There is also the set of 6 Nutcracker
paper mache ornaments that look very similar to the 12 days.  I fell in LOVE with them for some reason.  Every year they put them in their store, for 40 some bucks for the set.  I truly wanted them but knew that they would go on sale.  I decided then I would try to get them half price after Christmas.  I would go to C and B and I never saw them after the holidays.  Last year, I went practically the day after Christmas, a day I usually don't venture to the malls.  But I did for some reason, and I FOUND THEM!  Half priced, and the Nutcracker ornaments.  Due to this purchase, half priced, I have found that there are the 12 days of Christmas items all over!  I am going to share a few that I have found online, and in the stores.  I may have to grow my collection and make this my Christmas decor!
I really love these plates.  I found these online, and they would match my ornaments perfectly!  They are whimsical and fun!  I haven't found a site that doesn't have SOLD OUT on their site.  I will keep looking!
These you can find at Williams & Sonoma.
Lenox has a whole 12 days of Christmas line!  I love it!  Cute  cute!
