Thanks for all of the fun comments about my Santa collection. I have shared many of them over the years, but I love it that you still enjoy seeing them. I have been collecting them for many years, from craft bazars, from travels, from gift shops, and even from antique stores. I am trying very hard not to collect any more. My shelves are full. I just counted and I have 68 of them sitting around. That doesn't count the few I have hanging on a wall, or the Santa ornaments on the tree.Much more recently, when we started going on our Christmas field trip, I began buying one glass Santa each year. They have added up. Here are some of them.
This Santa with sleigh is this year's addition. Yes, that's a carrot by the reindeers nose, part of my very large fruit and vegetable ornament collection. :-)
Not every figure on the tree is jolly. Krampus is here too, to remind us to be good, or you will just get a switch in your stocking. And that ornament hanging next to him? Bacon. I do have some fun with my decorations.
So now, the card labels are printed. My cards are supposed to arrive tomorrow, and we hope to have them in the mail Friday morning.
Our tea party yesterday was fun, and our guests went home full of cookies and in the Christmas spirit.
The gifts are wrapped, except for a couple that are hidden away that I remembered last night when I wasn't sleeping. I woke up at 8:30 this morning to make up for the lack of sleep.
We just made a quick trip to drop off some items at Goodwill and then do a little shopping at Costco. It was busy but not really crowded, except the parking lot, and we felt safe in our masks. Everyone was well behaved.
Now it's lunch time and then I have a whole afternoon to fill. I'll take time with the newspaper over lunch, I'll get back to Blogger and see what you all have been up to, and I'll read my book! Such luxury!
