~~~Santa is HERE!!!!~~~

Santa has arrived and WELCOMES you to our Foyer! He stands life sized at the front door and says, "please, come on in!!!! He is holding a lit tree and lit bag of goodies! He has such a beautiful, kind face!

 Isn't he so life like!!!????
 On the other side of the Foyer is this Santa. We found him several years ago at a HARDWARE store!!! he was just plain with the bark coat and moss covering it. SOOOO, you know I had to "embellish" him a bit!
 Some birds are perched in hs arms and on his shoulders

 he carries a wooden reindeer.
 Joe made his glasses for him, we do NOT want him to get lost!
 This cute guy is on the back of the front door.
 When you open the front door this bakers rack is against the back of the stone fireplace that is in the living room.
 I have alot of my Santas on it and 2 stand on each side too.

 These 2 in the plaid coats were purchased at a craft fair many years ago. I love the bald guy and...
 his Mrs.! I sat her on a mini chair since I had placed him on a decorated sled.
 These 3 are made of pottery and were made by a local artist. The center one holds a Christmas tree.
 A few more shots of my very FAVORITE Santa in my collection! He is made by Joyce Ditz if any of you are interested, you can find them online too.

 This is the life sized Santa's bag.
 and his pocket watch to tell what time it is!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a GOOD NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish you all a joyous, blessed Christmas. Thanks so much for stopping by. I will join these parties again. XO, Pinky
