Simple and sweet this year
Some of my favorite Santas
The painting is an oil reproduction of Monterey California, where it rains instead of snows at Christmas
The windmill Santa on the end is not going to go round and round on the mantel like it does outdoors
but it's getting too old to be outside anymore.
I painted these many years ago. I never realized that when we got "old" my husband (see banner) would actually look like Santa! That was 2011. This year he is clean shaven and has very short hair! Who knows what next year will bring. These two didn't make it onto the mantel, but cozied up in the foyer.
The Victorian Santa this year in the sleigh resides side by side with the modern tin Santa that has swinging legs and hung from our tree for many years.
I love Decembre!
