It’s Christmas!!!!!!

Yep, I can say it officially now!!! I must admit I have always loved Christmas, not only because my Birthday is the week before (any cards greatly received!) but also because I love all the festivities, the lights, the food and the shop window displays.

Perhaps one day, I will have my dream of a premises from which I can display the Breyers I sell. I would love to do a window display just like they used to have in the old fashioned shops you still find in The Shambles in York. For now, I will just have to be content with my mantle piece and gorgeous Breyer Christmas horses.

I’m very lucky to own a few of them, some new and some pre-loved. In my house I have two mantle pieces which I can decorate. The first one in the living room. I theme with berries and leaves so I chose the following three models to go with that.

Bayberry and roses.

Bayberry and Roses is by far my favourite and was my first ever Christmas horse. He fits in so well with the decore!

The second mantle piece is in my bedroom so I chose horses to go with my colour scheme and accessories. I have a fabulous silver bed and lots of crystal tea light holders so Celestine was a perfect choice for this. Nutcrack Prince being a lovely grey with a pearlescent shene also fits the bill.

This Years holiday horse ‘Snowbrid’ is based on the new Morgan sculpt and is gorgeous I had to add him to my festive collection! I also like to collect the matching stirrup ornaments and enjoy sourcing the older ones too!
