I love Santa and every year a highlight of my decorating is the arrangement of the many unique versions I have of the Jolly Old Elf. I have Santas from far and wide… traditional and some a bit strange. There was a tense moment this year when we thought the Princess’ fear of the man in the flesh would transfer to my smaller, non-living collection. It was to great relief that she has chosen to ignore them with barely a sideways glance when she passes them!
I have picked out a few of my favorites this week to feature with more to come in the next few weeks!
Special Santas have a place of honor on our mantel. Our Swedish Santa, kokeshi Santa and iron nail Santa were picked out on journeys around the world. The beautiful red vintage Santa was made by my favorite folk artist Kim Sweet. Her work is getting harder to find and I am so thankful to have a few of her lovely Santas in my home.
