Santa-lier

Santa's hanging around in my kitchen.  I decided to remove the teacups from my funky redo chandy and hang the vintage Santa mugs.



Help yourself to a candy cane.


  I was so excited to find this Santa today at the thrift for only a dollar.  He brought back memories from childhood.  We had one exactly like him growing up.  I love his pink glass nose and rosy cheeks. 


Have you been good?

Your Santa-lier is adorable. I am in love with those Santa mugs this year. I found a pitcher at the thrift store, but haven't run across any mugs. Yet. I'm still on the lookout for them!

I just love those Santa cups, how clever to hang and display them in the way that you did! I have 2 from when my boys were babies (they are 29 & 30 now)! We had hot chocolate in them every Christmas season, it was a little tradition that they probably don't remember, but I do! Thanks for the memory!

I'm soooo kicking myself! Years ago I used to come by these vintage Japanese Santa mugs all the time. While they were cute, I hadn't started the Vintage Christmas Addiction yet. I would walk away from them!! KICK! KICK HARDER!!! I wish I collected them then, there pretty hard to come by now in my neck of the woods. Chandi looks so adorbs!

I just love your header. So fun and interesting. You have some real vintage goodies. The plastic Santas remind me of the ones my mom used to have. I wish I knew where those went. Your shiny brite tree is so fun and colorful. Have a very Merry Christmas.
