Each year at Christmas time the first thing I decorate with is my Santa Claus collection. I started a collection many years ago and I have added more Santa’s throughout the years. I can’t really remember what started my love for this sweet-faced jolly man. Possibly the joy of Christmas memories, or the feeling of love and peace throughout this season. I do know my collection makes me happy.
I prefer Santa’s that are typically hand crafted and painted. I really like the vintage nostalgia that each one invokes.
I have an antique mahogany game table that I place in my foyer so that Santa is the first thing visitors see upon entering the house. I’m just getting started with my decorating, but I was too excited to wait to show you part of my collection.
I love the artist’s detail on this Santa…
