NOEL bells

I love this little log with bells attached. It is a vintage piece, not sure how old, but old enough to work in my home. I just love bells, especially ones that have gotten a burnished glow on them. They remind me of Christmas's past. Two of my favorite carols are "Carol of the Bells" and "Silver Bells. " So I tend to collect and am drawn to things with bells on them. This little piece also has a little snowman on the top, it appears to be made of spun cotton. I have gone crazy for snowmen in the past...but have gotten to where the snowmen I get have to be vintage or at least vintage looking. So this has slowed me down in collecting them...which is a good thing. I do have some lovely snowmen to sell...so whenever I get my little Mercantile open I will be offering many of them to others to take home to love. It will now be next fall that my Mercantile will be open, as we did not get the garage changed over to a store this year. It is still a garage. I was hopeful, but my hubby did not get to do the work needed to have it completed. So it was just not meant to be, which was hard for me. But I had to put it into God's hands and let it go. For whatever reason, I was meant to do other things with my time this fall.

Hi, I love bells also. Carol of the bells is one of my favourites too. Recently I have become a fan of the movie Polar Express, mainly due to the reindeer bell the boy receives at the end.......
