Christmas Tour of Homes - Santa Style

Boomama is having a Christmas Tour of Homes, and since I'm still "feathering the Christmas nest", I'm going to show you some of my Santa collection today. Go ahead and stretch your legs now, because this might take a minute or too! ;O)
The foyer...
The dining room...
The great room...


Sorry, I didn't do a good job catching his face.


The stairs...
The view from the powder room loo....(don't worry, I wasn't on it while taking the photo....I do make some exceptions! :O)
Master bedroom...
Found this Santa over Thanksgiving. I don't know what he's worth, but I think I paid $12 for him. Got him home, and saw Brinn's on his boot. From my days playing around on eBay, I think that means he's pretty collectible. Yippee!!! I love his face!
And the Roly Poly Santas say, "Merry Christmas!"
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Now be sure to check out the rest of the tour over at Boomama's!

These are great! Do you look in any particular places to find more collectibles? My future mother-in-law also collects Santas, so we're always trying to find places to buy more for her.

Hello Tardevil, I am just now getting to visit some of my favorites. I am so sorry I have been AWOL. We were out of town and arrived home late Sunday night. It is good to be home. smile.

Your Santas are just the best. I love them all but the little elf Santa sitting on the arrangement is so cute. Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection.

Hi Tardevil....I'm baaaaaack! Yippee! I've missed my little virtual world! Love your collection of santas....I especially enjoyed the santa tree in the kitchen! I also have my santa mug collection on display.
Stop cooking and eat out...you know the best thing to make for dinner is..a reservation!
