Mr Claus

I've filled my corner cupboard in the living room with Santas this year.
The top shelf holds some of my smaller figurines.

The Mr and Mrs Claus on the right and the reindeer in the back left were both made of beads, by my Mom.

The taller Santa on the middle shelf is made of cardboard. The half Santa is a candy holder. I remember having the smallest plastic Santa when I was young so I had to have that one.

Two Santa candles, a candy box and a vintage roly poly Santa.

The bottom shelf holds larger figurines. The left Santa is one we had when I was young.

Newer figurines.

More on top, including a Norman Rockwell vintage puzzle my Mom had.

Guarding the cupboard is a one of a kind old world Santa I got at a church auction several years ago.

I really enjoy searching household sales and flee markets for more vintage Santas to add to my collection.

What a fun collection, Jean!

I love how you have found so many items from your childhood---not just Christmas items, but all the other things you talk about throughout the year.

You really seem to enjoy all of your collections and that is exactly how it should be.
