When Rob and I got together, I had a couple of ceramic Santa Clauses. We both really liked them. So, the next year, we had more. And, the next year, we had more. And, more and more until I don’t know how many there are anymore. More than will fit on our mantle. And, we have a big mantle.
There are little ones
and big ones
All all sizes in between. This year’s additions were from our friend LD and this one that Rob bought off ebay, Santa and two reindeer from when we were kids.
You can see the couple in front of the picture above are mid-size. I guess we knew we had to scale back when they started to overflow onto the hearth.
We suffered some damage one year when a cat jumped up there and knocked a couple off. But, a bit of glue and some acrylic paint and we’re back in business.
I have had to scale back my holiday quilting plans, too. I was going for three quilts by the holiday. Not! Now, I’m hoping for two and only because one of them is finished and bound.
I can do this, I can do this, I can do this. And, then I can finish the third one over the holiday break, maybe??? Hey, I have to walk away with some dignity.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Lane
