Santa Collection

Susan from Thoughts from over the rainbow is hosting another Deck the Halls party. Click here to go check out other Christmas decorations.

I have a few Santas I have collected. Above is my traditional red Santa. Below is one wearing an elegant white coat.


I just got this kitchen Santa this past Saturday at a church bazaar. I only paid $3.00 for him.





This is a ceramic gingerbread house.



The ceramic cupcake holds little spreader knives. Since we like cheese balls during the holidays, I will be putting these to use.




This star is made out of garden bamboo stakes sprayed silver. I did not make this, but the decoration committee at our church did. I though this was such a cleaver idea, I thought I would share.





Sunday night a group from our church went caroling. This darling sleigh is parked on the porch of a nursing home we went to. I'm sure Santa has a lot of goodies in there for the nice folks we visited.

Oh, love your Santas, Karen! I'm wild over that cooking one. And the sleigh is neat, too. Believe it or not, I have one in the garage... it has not seen it's first Florida snowfall yet, and I hope it doesn't. LOL! It came from a man in Tampa who bought it at an antique sale in Ohio.

XO,
