Have you ever collected something without actually thinking about it?
When I started decorating my house for Christmas this year, I noticed something. I have a lot of Santas! I never noticed that fact before. There is something so jolly about him that speaks to my very soul.
The one above was collected probably a good twenty years ago and still remains a favorite. It weighs a ton and has a pastel coloration that makes my heart race. (I am easily entertained.)
I started my decorating early this year which amuses me as I used to be a die-hard 'you do not decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving' person. Life changes us, doesn't it....and perhaps getting a bit older. I have had more time to pour over my decorations and enjoy each one of them while wandering about the house to decide where they would be displayed.
The way their hands and arms are wrapped around each other is so touching!
I hope you take the time to enjoy your Christmas decor this year. I have to admit, I haven't done this in years and it was so refreshing to actually 'see' what I have instead of rushing my head off to get it out and done.
Sending decorating blessings!
