Christmasing On The Mantel

Hello, Dear Ones. How is your Christmasing going? I thought I would bring you into the den today to show you my mantel. Since we have the grandchildren close by I wanted to decorate it with them in mind. Santa! That's what I went with...
I grabbed all the Santas I could find and started poking them on to the mantel.
 But first off, I poked my olden wreath up on the mirror. I made this wreath many years ago before I started blogging.
 I'll show you some of my Santas.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
~ sung by my Santas

  10. I love that wreath. Also love the Santas. I have quite a few different Santas. I have a lot of Snowmen, too. I decorate with them in the dining room. I found some cheap snowmen dishes several years ago and we use those a lot. Through the years I've collected angels so have a tree in the den with lots of angels on it. I also have a lot of Coca Cola ornaments and decorations. Penguins too. I guess I just collect a bit of everything.

  11. Your mantle looks adorable, Shelia. Your Santas are darling but I LOVE LOVE LOVE that wreath. xo Diana

    I decorate with the kids in mind, too. I gave all my Santa collection away to my kids 2 years ago (except for a very few favorites). I had collected for 30 years. We went round robin with each kid picking one and then the next one. It felt good to know that they are loved and part of my children's childhood and now in their homes.

  40. Shelia,
    Your grandchildren are going to LOVE your Santas, dear friend!!!
    My favorite is the Santa in the corner with his reindeer taking off into flight!!!
    I remember reading 'Twas The Night Before Christmas" every year when our sons were little.
    FIRST, though, we attended Candlelight Services and re~read The Christmas Story from the Bible.
    I'm thrilled that you are close to your grandchildren and looking forward to seeing them for Christmas!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat
