Santa Collection

Well, I've been running around like crazy the last few days. I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. We have to get things ready to send to our family in Alabama. We will be staying home this year. Plus, I helped at the school two days this week since the children had a special program. Today was the last day for 2 weeks so it will be a nice break. I decided to do a blog about my Santa collection. I have been collecting them for several years. Now this collection does not compare to my witch collection, but it is fun.

This handsome guy sits on the red blanket chest in our entry. He has vintage toys in his bag.

My sister gave me this one several years ago.

This guy sits in my antique high chair. It is a super chair- old stencils and great old red paint!

This one graces the book shelves.

This big Santa stands by the fireplace.

A few years ago, I made several of these as small gifts. This was the one that the SBA chose.

Here is my favorite.

I always put these on the fireplace mantel. My sister and I found a store that sold these for half price the day after Christmas. It was part of our holiday to go to this store. Our joke was that we often had a family member go with us but they only went once!!!

I have happy memories about doing this with my sister. We now live at opposite ends of the country-me in Washington and my sister and her husband in Florida!

I hope everyone is enjoying the season and thanks for taking a look!
