The Last Collection for this Year

Santa from my parents' tree
Sharing lots of pictures of MOST of my Santa collection.  It is like seeing old friends every year when I pull them out of the boxes.  Most are new, some are old, all are quirky in their own way.

Had to have this vintage skiing Santa since I live in Colorado

A gift from my husband on one of our first Christmases together

Old Santa with clay face

Love this grumpy faced chalkware Santa

Vintage sleigh being pulled by old mercury glass reindeer

Custom made Santa on sewing machine w/crazy quilt cloak

Second grade project-SO precious!

And finally, the real reason for the season.

Thank you all for all of your support and friendship over the year.  Hope your Christmas is full of beauty and love.  I will be taking a little break from blogging until after the new year, but I'll be back with "ta daaaa"  another giveaway.  Stay tuned.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all that you hold dear.  Linking this post to Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday, Cindy's Show and Tell Friday,  and Beverly's Pink Saturday.

Until next time,
Pin It!
