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!
