I'm a collector of many things, especially figures of wildlife. A pottery fox by Jonthan Adler http://www.jonathanadler.com/index.php and mercury glass owls from http://westelm.com/ add whimsy to a collection of whites and silvers. Adding the snow-flocked church with trees creates my minimalist Christmas decor on a white lacquered credenza by MitchellandGold.com
I collect Santa's. Each year the collection increases. I particularly look for stacking doll type or candles that are reproductions of the vintage candles. I love this season for decorating and the "home" atmosphere it creates.
