MINI ME SANTA AND MORE......

When I shared this Santa I forget about the "mini-me" I had. In case you didn't see that post the large Santa belonged to my husbands Nana who was born in 1900. Then when I was working at Hallmark this Fenton piece came in and I just had to have it!

This is a beautiful story. This was all the rage on QVC 14 years ago and I just had to have the whole set. I also have a teacup ornament on my tree.

These belonged to my parents, don't you just love them. I'm not sure what they were used for. They are the size of a coaster but they wobble. I surely hope that they weren't ashtrays!

Just love this tree and book.

Fell in love with this chubby guy!

A few of the snowmen from the dining room trees.

Hope everyone is almost ready, only 7 more days !!!!

(So I may disappear for a few days, or at least I am going try!)
(This is easier said then done but I spent nearly 12 hours here on Wednesday)

Love the mini me Santa... it's all so pretty! I do wonder what those little dishes were used for... could have been ash trays!

That santa is incredibly cool and I can totally understand why you had to get the mini me lol I bet the little plates were for individual treats. Well, that's what I would use them for :)

Have a Merry Christmas. Enjoy some time off!
