~ Father Christmas ~

Look what my Santa just gave me, Father Christmas. Carl went to his regular little Saturday flea market and on the way home stopped at a garage sale and found this rather regal fellow. He has a beautiful green cloak edged with fur and I think one of the sweetest faces. What is so ironic I have been seeing some beautiful Father Christmas's on several blogs and in my comments I had mentioned I'd love to find one for my collection...but I hadn't said a word to Carl. So, you can imagine how surprised and happy I was when I found this Santa on the dinning room table. I love him and you too honey. Hope everyone is having a jolly day....hugs, Linda

Oh, I am so happy you have your Father Christmas. He looks a good bit like mine.
At our party the table was decorated with lights and greenery down the center. Then these beautiful green trees in different sizes with a group of 3 snow people carolers. I loved the trees but I resisted bidding on any thing this year.

I love your new Santa. What a sweet hubby you have! I have to go back and check out all the other Santas on your previous posts.

Stop by and see me when you get a chance.
