Wednesday In Japan. . . Christmas Cards

I have posted many times before about my love of Japanese Christmas Cards.
So lucky that my family sends me fabulous ones.
DIL and Granddaughter just send me the Five Santas with the red noses 
that blink off and on to the music.
KAWAII !
.............
Every Christmas I display just a few of the Christmas cards I have saved 
over the years on my credenza . 
I weave some very wee lights on thin copper wire around them.
No money spent and decorations that mean something to me.

 Newest Japanese musical card
.
 Lots of favorite Japanese cards
.
 I just put the cards around what is already here.
.
 Twirling Santas.
.
 My very favorite card, Santa sitting with forest animals around a lighted tree 
that plays several carols.
.
 Lovely.
.
 Happiness.
.
 One of my older cards.
.
 Some of Daughters cards.
A Snowman from the wonderful Elizabeth.
.
These make me so happy.
Small treasures that you can hold in you hand.

    1. When I am in Japan the kids are alway saying... step away from the paper goods and all will be OK.
      I always bring one suitcase home filled with all kinds of cards, paper calendars, notebooks and pens !

  8. Those are such beautiful cards! The Santas with red noses are really kawaii :-) They make very elaborate cards in Japan. I need to check out when I go to Japan next time. The Tako is very kawaii, too! I have Tako like that but it's much smaller (it's a key holder.) Love the photo of your square ones! They are the most kawaii :-)

    1. So true. I always seem to bring a suitcase filled with all sorts of paper goods.
      I have a whole wall of keyrings and phone charms.

  10. I enjoy the way you have decorated without going to a lot of extra expense. The cards from Japan are lovely and those two black faces at the end are very expressive.
