dear santa...

I am joining Debra today for Vintage Inspiration Friday!!  Last Friday when I had a small gathering at my nest (again, always a good time with you girls!) I put together this little vignette to display by the bar set up...
I have pared down my Santa collection over the years and I just kept a few that are really special to me.  I bought the one in the middle at the first craft fair I ever did with some of the money I made that day...

I found this next Santa out treasure hunting with my Mom, we both loved it and of course there was only one.  My Mom purchased it saying we would share him ~ I was the lucky one the first year...

This last old Santa is probably my favorite...
Pretty heavy for a little thing, I think he might be cast iron...
I never could find any markings or have never seen one like it.  I think he is just wonderful and it was a gift from my husband...
I wonder what he will get me this year.  Which makes me think...
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
