Yes, I’m crazy about Santa.  Or… I have a lot of Santas, and therefore, I’m crazy!  This is not ALL my fault.  You know how it is.  When you have a little collection of something,  everybody thinks they know exactly what to give you for birthdays and Christmas?


That’s what happened to me – that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.  If you’re a new Christmastime visitor to my blog, you may think this is a LOT of Santas. 


(There are more Santas at my house!) I’m whispering now and hanging my head in shame.  I’ll be sharing others in future posts.

I’ve tried to downsize my collection, but I hate to part with any of them.  I’ve been collecting them for over 40 years, so they have become my Christmastime friends.  Besides, would Santa bring me anything if I started getting rid of him?

I stuck a little candlestick lamp in this Fitz and Floyd pitcher.  When you’ve got this many, at least one of them has to become useful.


This little lamp normally holds prisms, but I’m now using it to display some Santas.

I can just hear women all over Blogville, calling their husbands to come see this – “You think I’ve got a lot of Christmas décor; just look at what this crazy person’s husband puts up with!”

So…when your mother told you that Santa is everywhere, I have the proof that she was being truthful!

He’s watching, and watching, and watching and….  (I can’t get away with anything.)

I’m linking this post to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  If you can stand it, come back soon to see more Santas!   Ho! Ho! Ho!  laurie

I have some of the greatest friends.  My friend, Charlie Ann, gave me this cute framed needlework, which was perfect for me!  I love it!
