I made an executive decision
to NOT dig out my
Santa collection this year.
I probably have about 200 pieces..
give or take a few.
I have been collecting them for
my whole married life.
It is just too busy with the new baby
and going back and forth between
here and Milwaukee,
so they will stay snuggled safe
in their containers for one more year.
I did, however,
dig out most of my other
and there are a few Santas
that I do need to put out.
They were gifts from
MyHero or the kids
and they are too special to
leave packed away.
No Jeanne d' Arc here
although I love it..
this family loves the
traditional colors of Christmas.
This is a Fitz & Floyd that MyHero
gave me for Christmas
several years ago.
He's about 14" high
and has matching reindeer candle holders.
and my Mimi cross stitched this
for me when she was in college.
Can you guess what year it was?
Didn't she do a good job?
To counterbalance all the Santas,
we have to have an angel...
She's big...stands about 30" tall.
there is one more angel here
As you see, he thinks the
whole thing is
Hmmm...He thinks Santa is a Yawn?
Well...I THINK Santa has
left him a lump of coal-
in his pants-
And so it goes~
