When you just can't decide which Christmas pin to wear..... why not attach them all to a necklace? Its a bit heavy but definitely a conversation starter. I've collected a few from flea markets and thrift shops but my favorites came from my Grammy who received them as gifts from her second grade students in the 60's.
Christmas Elf Collection
 While you normal people are having fun with the Elf on a Shelf, I of course have to put my own spin on the tradition.  My boys know I'm weird and make fun of me for it but secretly, they love it... even if they don't admit it.  Most of these bad boys are from the 50's and 60's with the exception of three newish ones I've found at Kirkland's over the past two years. While they may not admit it.... my boys look forward to them each year. They are such a fun, inexpensive collection to pass along one day to their own children and remind them of their own eccentric mom.
