Back in the early 70's Home Interior was very popular in my area. Everybody was having a party and I certainly wasn't the exception. I ♥♥♥♥♥ed Home Interior ! !
(Are they still around?)
So, my party was in the fall when they were promoting all their beautiful Christmas items, and oh how I wanted those Christmas pretties ! ! I worked really hard and earned enough points to acquire several things that year. It was the year of MY FIRST SANTA...woohoo...and this is him....
I had no intention of starting a Santa collection, the thought never entered my mind, but the next year another Santa came to live with my Home Interior Santa, and year after year more Santa's arrived at my house. WOW...I had a collection..Now I try to acquire a new Santa each year, the trouble is I am having a problem finding room to display them, so, I have to STOP...
Up on the housetop reindeer pause,
Out jumps good ol' Santa Claus !
This one was made at school by one of my girls.
1980...whew....30 years ago
Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight !
Gingerbread Cookie Anyone?
I think he went on a diet. lolololo
I call this Santa, St. Nick
This Santa plays Christmas Music ! !
This Santa was made from an old chenille bedspread !
HO HO HO
Santa Claus is coming to town ! !
Santa Claus Bell
Lots of toys and goodies on the way !
The next Santa is one of my favorites. My hubby, Dean, has played guitar for many years, since a teen-ager. When I saw this Santa a few years ago I knew it had to come home with me. This is for you Dean.
And for the grand finale, here is this years Santa. I wasn't even shopping for him, he just kinda grabbed me at the Cracker Barrel. The picture does not do him justice....he lights up and sparkles all over himself ! !
Hope you enjoyed my Santa's....Everyone of them are sending you and your family a
BIG, VERY BIG, Merry CHRISTmas ! !
And remember, JESUS, the most wonderful gift ever given.
