Santa shopping spree!

My morning started very well - I found several really cute Santas - two that reflect the growing population of baby boomers spending their winters in warmer climates. Check these out:

Tiki Santa
Santa in the pool

If you click on them, you'll go straight to the page I found them on at a Nautical store. There was also a cute little pink flamingo Christmas tree if you need a whimsical gift for Grandma, hehe.


Cookie Jar Santa

The third Santa I fell in love with this morning was this Cookie Jar Santa. I think he will spend December on my Christmas table. We always have plates and tins and packages of tempting cookies sitting there. I think this Santa could help us hide a few to eat on New Year's Eve.

If you're a Santa collecter, I hope you're enjoying the season as much as I am. We're only a short time away from hauling out the storage boxes and displaying all our men in little red coats. Between now and then is the perfect time to find additions while you have the time.

I love Santa! Don't have but a few, though. For the last ten years or so been collecting Dickens Village houses. I'm a little afraid to collect anything else Christmas has gone hog wild in my house.

I agree that the quirky Santas are a bit overboard - When I first started collecting Santas, they were a little bit hard to find.

In regards to missing New England, I just saw a Lobsterman Santa on the same site that sells the Tiki Santas. Yellow slicker, etc.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments for me. I do appreciate it.

Interesting theme for a website.

I just discovered that the cookie jar Santa and the Tiki Santa are sold out. My personal favorites are still the ones a few posts further down - the Russian nesting doll Santas. I just love those.

I'd much rather see Santa in shorts than a snow suit!!! I collect tropical Santas and would love to get one of those Miami outdoor sets with the sled being pulled by flamingos. Has anyone seen them for sale?
