~ Santa's~

Here is our hutch and look who has it taken over......Santa. I wish I could remember which Santa is the first one that started my collection , but after all these years I'm not sure. You can click on the pictures to get a closer look at these little Santa's and there are a couple of Mrs. Santa's too.
I always say the Mr. and Mrs. sitting in the chair is Carl and me.
Ho~Ho~Ho.......if you look closely you can see Santa bunny.
Do you see the little Santa to the right...he looks like he's peeking over something...Lisa painted him when she was about ten and just to the left of him an old Santa pin, Carl found and his nose still lights up.
The center Santa is a Jim Shore and the chubby Santa on the right might be the first of my collection...I'm not sure, but he is very old.
I love all these Santa's....some are very old, there are new ones, and hand crafted...and many have been gifts. I always try to choose a favorite, but I can't. Did you see a favorite? Have a happy day~~HO, HO, Ho~ Linda
