Old World Santas


Are you a Snowman, a Santa or an Angel decorator? I certainly prefer the Old World Santas. Victorian, Woodland or just a little different. Here are some of my favorite Santas.


I love Santa with the fawn. Santa must certainly be an animal lover too!



This is my tallest Santa.

He is close to 2 feet tall.

He looks great on the fireplace mantel with his own wreath.




This is my chubbiest Santa . . . love his face!




This is my sentimental Santa. I bought him in 2004 at the Christmas Store in Rothenburg, Germany.



This little guy is my smallest Santa. Only a few inches tall. I love his coach light.



This is my mended many times Santa. He always falls over and his nose has been repaired almost every year. His boots have been fractured and re-glued. The worse he gets the more I love him. He makes me laugh!





Oh, almost forgot this guy . . . he is big too. I love his felt outfit and jingle bells.



Looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing the many lovely decorations from all around the globe. Happy Holidays!

Beautiful tree and decorations. My husband collects Santas and we also have a snowman collection and Byers carolers too. I have run out of room in our little house for all the things I have.

Hi Karen...
Your tree is lovely...I always struggle a little with tree pics too! I think it might be because I want to take daylight pics and it is in a darker corner.
Love all of your Santas. They are all so different which adds to the charm of having a collection.

Talk to you soon.
Hugs, Nancy
