Holiday Home Gift Ideas Part 2- Time To Decorate!

The holidays are all about decorating. Decorating your home for the holidays can be a fun family tradition that brings everyone together. One of the best examples of traditional holiday decor comes from the Jim Shore Heartwood Creek collection. I've done several posts about Jim Shore, a self taught artist from South Carolina. Jim's grandmother was a quilt maker and had a big influence on his style of traditional American folk art. His collectibles make great gifts for those who love the old time traditional holiday favorites. Here are some of Jim Shore's classic holiday collectibles available to order now.

Rudolph Jim Shore BUMBLE/RUDY/HERMEY Figurine- If you've grown up in America, you're sure to recognize "Bumble", the scary turned lovable abominable snowman from the classic "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" animated TV special that airs every year. This is a favorite collectible for every generation.

Jim Shore Snowman Family- I just love the detail in this piece, all the way down to the adorable baby snowman, what could be cuter! Titled "Warm Hearts on Frosty Days". Measures 8" wide x 9" tall x 6" deep.

Jim Shore Musical Nativity Angel "Silent Night"- This is one I haven't seen before and is my personal favorite, it is absolutely gorgeous! The wind up piece plays the song "Silent Night", and the inside scene rotates, there is a battery operated LIGHT that can be switched on to light the inside, batteries are included but not guaranteed. Stone resin, measures 11" x 5 1/2" and comes in gift box.

Jim Shore `Twas The Night Before Christmas`- Here comes Santa, hope the little ones have gone off to bed, with sugar plum fairies dancing in their heads. Santa and the Reindeer flying over the snow caped houses and trees on a base that says, 'Twas the night Before Christmas.' Stone resin, gift boxed, measures 7 3/4" tall.

Jim Shore Santa - `Up On The Housetop`- This is a classic looking Santa and he comes bearing gifts. It stands 10 inches tall and is made of stone resin that resembles carved wood.




What would the holidays be without lights? Boring and dull to say the least. These decorative lamps from Meyda Tiffany combine colorful stained glass pieces with light that will brighten your home this holiday season.

Moravian Star Pendant- This hanging pendant light is just stunning. It features multi-colored art glass in shades of striking emerald green, sapphire, citrine and ruby tones. It dates back to Moravia hundreds of years ago and was used to protect your home and bring good luck to your family. It comes in 3 different sizes and uses a 60 watt bulb.

22"H Poinsettia Table Lamp- This Tiffany Studio reproduction stained glass lamp features Russet Poinsettia flowers against Bay Green leaves. Finished in Mahogany Bronze, this lamp makes a beautiful holiday accent.

Tiffany Gingerbread House Accent Lamp- A festive holiday Gingerbread House accent lamp, crafted of Holiday Red and Green stained art glass with Winter White and Amber accents that will put you in the spirit of the season.



Tiffany Snow Woman Accent Lamp- This classy lady makes a statement with her matching accessories! Both a great gift and a festive holiday decoration!




Tiffany Mrs Claus Accent Lamp- She keeps Santa in line and his plump belly fed. Behind every great man is an even greater woman. A great match for the Tiffany Santa Accent Lamp, the Tiffany Mrs. Claus Accent Lamp will put you in the holiday spirit with its festive red and green stained glass accents.

Tiffany Santa Accent Lamp- Here he is, the hardest working man in the world on December 24. His little red nose shows the cold won't slow him down when little ones anxiously await his visit while they sleep.




Tiffany Sleigh With Presents Accent Lamp- Santa couldn't do it without his trusty sleigh.
This festive holiday Sleigh with Presents accent lamp, crafted of Holiday Red and Green stained art glass with Winter White, Amber and jewel accents will put you in the spirit of the season.
