We have a nursery here that has a beautiful array of Christmas decorations, trees and flowers every year. It's so much fun to go and I've NEVER been that I didn't come home without at least one new Christmas ornament!

They have the best assortment of MARK ROBERTS FAIRIES and I had been wanting to start a Christmas collection of his fairies for a long time...just never did. BUT.....

since I try to buy one new Christmas decoration every year, this seemed to be the year for a fairy. Hmmmmm. So many pretty ones, it was hard to decide.

THEN I SAW HIM. That one....with the pink hat and the red boots with a jingle bell on each toe....

He came home with me that day! Mark Roberts Fairies are hand painted and always wear the cutest clothes. A friend says they are so ugly, they're cute but, I just think they are cute!!

I'm excited about getting my collection of Mark Robert's Fairies finally started. Each one stays in production for awhile and then he is "retired". I'll collect enough of them to make sure ea. grandchild has at least one (if they like them or not!! :) Ha)

Good Morning BJ,
Your little Santa Fairy is just adorable. I just know that Pea of Pea's Corner would have a fit over that. She is a big, and I do mean big, fairy collector. She loves them. You should go over and check her site out if you already haven't. She is a sweetheart. She is always taking pictures of things and her blogsite is always decorated so beautiful. I did some more decorating yesterday afternoon. I still have more to do, but it has been so cold here yesterday and today. I want to go get my village and put it on my bar. It it warms up a bit today, I may go get it. Well, take care my friend and have a great Saturday and fun decorating. May God Bless You and Yours.

Oh BJ, he is soooo cute! What a wonderful collection to start. You must find a very special place for him...or will you put him on the tree?

He's adorable, I had never heard of that artist. I'll have to keep my eyes open when I'm out and specialty shops.

Oh, he is cute:) I love the store's diplay of Santas. Looks like a wonderful place to browse.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Cute little fellow. When you said fairies, I thought more the little girls with wings than a Santa fairy.

Have fun collecting them.

Good morning ~ So glad you came to visit. Yes, the Mark Robert's fairies are lovely, don't have them myself, but I am familiar with them. Their little costumes are incredibly beautiful. Hope you have a lovely day.

We have a huge tree and garden place here that does wonderful Christmas decorating and has some amazing decorations too...must get over there this week to check it out.

I love your Christmas fairy and all the other fairies. I'm going to see if I can find some. I have a beautiful Christmas fairy ornament that hubby bought me a couple of years ago. She is lovely. I will post photos of her closer to Christmas.

If the Spirit of Christmas button doesn't stay animated, please go to my blog and email me. I will send you the HTML code.

Hi BJ, Hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving.I love elves and faeries. I am pining for the one with the purple hat. They are great and a tree with secret faeries tucked in here and there is so wonderfully whimsical ! Nice purchase.

This looks like a lovely collection. I never heard of it before. Jingle bells sound like a perfect place to start. :)
