Vintage Santa…

A couple years ago, my mom gave me the Santa Mug that I used to use during the holidays from when I was little. I have since tried to collect some of the other Santa expressions as I come across them.  This year, I have had some luck finding a few new ones.  Still on the look out for more ~ but, I just love these ones!

What made me even more excited was to see the delight in my one year old cousins, Sloan’s face today when she saw them – pointing to them and reciting…”SANTA”!  Loving it!

I love Santa mugs! We always had some when I was a kid and I bought some for my children when they were little. I may even still have them in a box in the basement. Now I need to look and if so, I'll let the grand babes use them! How fun! Tracie, have a Merry Christmas with your family and all the best for the New Year! Hugs, Leena

They are darling and fun for sure. Angela at Tea for Friends has a huge collection. I think she has a lot of luck at Good Wills. I think one of the major retailers did them this year too like Pottery Barn or one of those.
They sure make you smile.
Happy Christmas, Ruthie from: http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com

Great collection, Tracie. I have a small collection of Santas in sleighs - it started with the one that my parents always had sitting on top of the huge television console when I was a kid. Poor plastic thing only has one present and one reindeer left, but every year it goes out. Now I have a few more to add to the collection. My siblings always look for the old one and comment every year that it's still around.

I remember those little candles.
Also, we had stockings with rubber elves on them. Don't know what happened to them.

I love the character of the old Christmas items.
