My husband and I have enjoyed collecting Santa Clauses
for as long as we've known each other
... and that, my friends, is a lot of years!
We display many of them on the fireplace mantel in our family room.
This little hand-carved wooden Santa was the very first of our collection.
I gave him to my husband on our first Christmas together after we'd married.
Santa aside ... my most favorite Christmas treasure of all is the
tiny Lladro nativity my husband gave me a long time ago.
This year, I've displayed it beneath a vintage cloche.
