Happy St. Nicholas Day!!!

I have always loved Christmastime, and of course growing up, Christmas meant Santa Claus! As I grew older, I started amassing a large collection of Christmas items, and one of the largest is my selection of Santa Clauses. Today I'm only going to show you a small portion of my collection. Our family room is always decorated with my collection of Santa dolls. Almost all of the decoration on the small tree is Santa too. On the wall are Santa plates and cross stitch pieces that I have done. I think the newest addition to my Santa gang is what my kids call my "Ugly Santas"!! These are very whimsical and folk arty. My husband and I have collected MANY vintage Christmas decorations as well, but today is all about Santa! I hope he brings you whatever you are wishing for this Christmas!!

Be sure to visit Http://santaclausfest.com to see what treats they have in store for you today!

Hi darlin'
So good to see you pop up! Loved the Santas! We always made St. Nick's day special when we had kids at home. They woke up to find chocolate and a candy cane in their shoes. And something yummy for breakfast that morning.

Have missed seeing you around! I hope all is well!

Hi Luna! I try to check in on a regular basis, but I don't always leave comments. I need to be better about that! Dh is having some further medical problems, but at this point nothing too serious.

I am a true Christmas-a-holic! This is only a small sample of my cloth Santas. I haven't put them all out yet. I've also got them in all other materials, shapes and sizes!! We collect antique Christmas decorations and have two feather trees. I'm not even sure how many Nativity sets we have! My nutcracker collection goes in the Living Room and has outgrown the shelves where they used to go! I'm now working on filling up the piano top!! Our Dining Room is the nature room with birds, pinecones etc. The kitchen is full of Gingerbread men and peppermint decorations! Do you think I need to scale back?!
