Oh, the nutcrackers! Oh, the stockings that are hung! Oh, the villages and trees! Oh, the Oreo cookie tins! Oh, the mantle places! Discovering all the traditions out there has been such a treat. It is so much fun to see what goes on inside the homes of Buff-A-Looooo. My goodness. Can anyone really move? The collections we accumulate out there in our homes!! Ok minimalists out there, we are making memories and cherished ones at that!  Let me share some of the pictures with you. See the collections of just a few friends and neighbors. Thank you for letting me inside your homes.

Pam Strickland carefully displays her Precious Moments nativity and angle collection on her mantle place. Pam remembers driving to Canada to complete the set back in the day when the US dollar gave you a great exchange rate. I mean, half the fun is the memory you create collecting your pieces.

Notice in this picture that even the top of the tree is decorated with a Precious Moment tree topper angel.

Julie Snyder started collecting Oreo cookie tins by accident in the 1990's. She collected an entire decade till Oreo decided not to make them anymore. The cookie tins are pulled out every year much to the delight of her friends that called her crazy for collecting them back then.
