SANTA COLLECTION #40

I haven't posted any of my collection for a while. Sorry. Trouble is the bins full of my Santa collection were buried under my staircase behind all the other Christmas bins. I was too lazy busy to lug them all out of the way and try and store them somewhere in the mean time. 
This Santa came to me last year, a gift from one of my coffee buddies. He brought it over on Boxing Day to our open house. (Dec. 26 to those who have never heard of Boxing Day) Since he got packed away not long after that day I had forgotten all about him until I opened up my bins. 
He is much more beautiful than this photo shows. His coat is golden with beautiful swirls. He is about 14" tall. One of my top favorites for sure.  


You can see the previous ones I have posted on my sidebar slide show or click on Santa in my tag list at the bottom of the blog.

Oh, he is beautiful, Lori! I am glad you found the bin. Does this mean you are going to start Christmas decorating?? I need a good kick. Then again, I am recovering from Thanksgiving, which is A LOT of work!!

Have a great evening. I am going to drink some wine and I have a wedge of brie (all for me!!)

xoxo

Santa on a night out! He's is so handsome. My sister gave me a Santa jewel box for my birthday. I have lost count of how many I have. I love Santas.

I have a smaller collection of Santas and some of yours remind me of mine!! I was thinking about getting rid of some of them, at least I know where I could give them a good home!

“Lori’s Santa Rescue and Adoption Centre”. Lol.
