My Christmas Collections - kneehuggers and now trolls....



I didn't know this until this year but the little elfs I've been collecting for years are called "kneehuggers" since they hug their knees. I've just been calling them vintage felt elves. I don't think I found a single one at a yardsale this year. But of course, I had fun hunting for them.



The other day I started a new Christmas collection. Tacky Christmas trolls! I saw them at Smile for .50 each and had to get them all. So that will be something *new* for me to look for when I go yardsailing in 2008. I think starting a Christmas troll collection is fitting since my very first garage sale buy ever was a troll when I was about 5 years old. And I still have it.
