Two for Tuesday

I just have to show off our newest Department 56 display ~ our designer, Kristy, has been working on it for several days.  Three tiers and a grand double staircase lead up to The North Pole Palace, and an upside down tree filled with icicles is suspended above.

I also recorded a short film that shows the flashing lights and animation of the scene ~ see if you can spot the skiers enjoying a day on the slopes!


If you happen to have an attractive wooden étagère like this one in the store, you need to add this striking sleigh to your holiday decorations. It’s positioned right under a spotlight where it catches my eye every time I pass by. I long to fill it with some red and green decorations ~ or maybe something in light blue and cream and gold. Very handsome!

It’s about 2 feet wide and 18 inches tall ~ it could hold an array of gifts or party favors for a special gathering.

We’re continuing to enjoy an onslaught of spring break guests in the store this week ~ if only the spring weather would return, too!
