« Clock Is Ticking | Main | Collection Challenge #187 - Vintage New Year »

December 24, 2013



This is by far my most favorite Collection Challenge you have done all year! That Night Before Christmas Golden Book brought back the best memories for me. I had it when I was little and it was my favorite thing to unearth when getting out the Christmas decorations. I never understood why my mom wouldn't let me keep it out year round. Now I get it.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Laurie!



This is a very sweet collection. Love that Gurley set. Great Santa graphics. Have a very Merry Christmas, Laurie. Santa should be good to you...he probably thinks you are one of his elves helping spread joy.


Love your collection of night before Christmas books! My Christmas post this year is taken from inside my 1949 copy. Funny, it has the exact same Santa picture on the cover as your 1969 copy but the fonts are different.


As always, I am so inspired by you!

I might have to agree with Erica. This is very sweet collection. Hard to pick favorites but this might be my favorite too. Wishing you a very Blessed Christmas! Love up those kiddos.


This was the best collection you could have shared with us today. I love it all! I have never seen the Gurley candle set and now I want one! Wishing you a very very Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas Laurie! Love your collection... Enjoy the holiday may Santa be good to you!...


Wow! What a great collection Laurie... and perfect timing. I just love those old illustrations too... and Santa smoking! You won't see that on newer items. Happy Holidays to you and yours!


You're so right about the older illustrations! So charming! Hey-- I have the same Gurley set, and box too; it's always been one of my faves.

Gosh 1939 that is even before I was born!
I love those books too. Hey Laurie if you want to visit all your little reindeer you can check out my blog they are all on one table underneath a large photo I bought Bob. Merry Christmas.

Cute collection. Love the Gurleys! Hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas!


The printed Shiny Brite is my fav! I hope you guys had a great Christmas and that Santa was nice to you. I wonder if seeing all your Santas freaked him out... : )
