Oh how I love Santa Claus! I do! I have several Santa's throughout the house and I thought I would share just a few of my favorites. The one above is a gourd that my mom painted several years ago. It is my favorite Santa. It is a little piece of my mom that I can have every Christmas and it is so special to me. I love the details that she painted and how loving he looks.
This Santa is from my favorite Aunt. It is a pill bottle that she painted. She is also a detail painter and I love his eyes. (Sorry the picture isn't that great. My photography skills aren't up to par this morning.)
These are just a few of my Santas, but special ones. I love that they were made by very special people in my life and they are treasures. That is one of the reasons I love this time of year - memories and sharing.
I hope you have special people and wonderful treasures that make your Christmas beautiful. Make the most of what is left of the weekend.
