Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! This is the "Big Day" in our family as we open our 'prises (short for surprises) this evening and have the neighbors over for a little "Christmas Cheer". We still open stockings tomorrow, however, but Christmas Day is much more relaxed and is just my hubby and I since our BFF's are away and we do our traditional Christmas dinner with them after New Years.

As you can see, Santa is at my house (under the grand piano) deciding who gets what so I hope you've all been good little boys and girls. He is the newest addition (last year) to my Santa collection and all of those fabulous vintage toys pack up in that beautiful trunk for storage. At the moment I'm a bit upset because he's one of a kind and for some reason I've misplaced his "credentials" which also lists the artist. Usually these pieces are also signed but I can't seem to find any signature anywhere either. HHHmm... Hopefully our guy at the Mole Hole in Carmel can remedy that for me. I seem to be a "collector" of all sorts of stuff and my Santas are some of my faves. Click HERE for pix of the others. What about you? Do you have a special Christmas collection that you lovingly put out every year? I'd love to say and chat, but I've still got lots (read more decorating) to do, not to mention wrapping gifts and such. Yeah, I know, I said I wanted this to be a "stress free" holiday and here I am rushing around as usual. The difference is, I'm going with the flow. If it gets done, it gets done, if not, well, nobody really knows (or cares) but me. I still better get moving though. LOL I apologize for not visiting you each individually, but know that I'm thinking of all my blogging friends. So here's wishing all of you a magical Christmas and a very healthy, happy New Year. xxD

  7. I love that Santa Donna. Very original. I hope you are able to find the credentials. OMG..I am still recovering from running around the last minute. We were up till 4am wrapping presents and then the three year old got up at 7am..URGH 3 hours of sleep. Oh well. Next year I will be better.

  8. OMGosh - what a glorious collection of Santas. :-) Now THAT's what Santa should look like. Marvelous :-D xxxxxxxxxx


Thanks for making my day!
