Fabulous Christmas Decor Finds

A few years ago I bought one of the Old World Santas and fell in love with all of them, so I started trying to collect a different one every year.  I hadn't had time to look for one yet this year and then of course when I was at GW, what in the world was just sitting there ?, A fabulous Old world Santa completely different from the ones I already have.  I found him a couple of weeks ago, I just hadn't shown him to you yet.  He is in my header collage and I think he is a great addition.



I am always fascinated at all the ornamentation that is added to Santa's robe and dress.  Fabulous silk dress with gorgeous trim on his velvet robe and tons of fur trim.  He even has a beautiful gold and ruby necklace.


A pretty ruby on his hat too.


 Yes, can you believe $2.99!!!!  I was thrilled and of course he jumped in my basket super fast.


I also found a lovely reindeer that I had to have.  Super simple and elegant in all white.


Yes, he was $2.99 also.  I havn't been adding  anything to my decor, in fact I have been thinning out, but I thought both of these were classic.


Two great treasures and perfect for my Christmas decorating.  I've placed them both on my familyroom coffee table.  I'll show you a pic later when everything is all done.

So are you all done, or are you still decorating and have you bought anything new?

  3. Hi Marty, Love seeing your Santas-I have three I love as well. I have to tell you that many years ago(probably 25)I got two matching Reindeer-I think from Princess House and now only have one. I have a hard time figuring out where to put him so he stays in the box. Glad your fits so perfectly in your home.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. Wow Marty, you're such a great shopper, wish I could go with you, such gorgeous santa, I love him, he is sooo elegant and rich looking! The reindeer is lovely too. I'm trying not to buy much this year, but I already fell for St. Patrick's Cathedral like the one in NY, so perfect for me and my mantel. What can I say, I love C'mas. Happy Sunday. FABBY

  13. I like the old world Santa's too, Marty, but I LOVE the white reindeer! I would have grabbed him up in a second!

  14. Oh my gosh, I can't believe you found that great Santa at Goodwill, Marty! Even more, I can't believe someone donated it! He looks great and I love all the ones in your header. Yes, the reindeer is classic, and if anything, you can always change the ribbon out around his neck when you feel a change. I'm calling it done here at my house. Just want to finish up a few gifts and then I hope to sit back and just enjoy the season!

  16. Marty,

    I love your Santa and the little deer is so cute. I found some treasures at the sale my daughter held this week-end. You'll have to come over and look at what I bought. Great buys there!

    Have a great weekend!

  17. I love what you found and can't believe the great prices too! You just reminded me that I have a Santa still packed away in boxes somewhere that I should probably get out. It's in a neutral color and very nature inspired which would go with my theme this year. I haven't bought very much this year. I have so much that is still packed away that I'm not even using, so I feel bad buying more. Sometimes it's just hard to resist though! Ha!

  23. Done, Marty----I haven't even started. We just arrived home late Thursday and then a day of unpacking and laundry; then today getting caught up with my CW blocks. We haven't done a thing but I am glad I can enjoy your beautiful home. Why have one Santa, when you can enjoy three or four------or more?

  27. I seem to be drawn to Santa's, too. Some years I fill my tree with Santa ornaments, sometimes not, but this year is a Santa year. I am almost done decorating.

  34. Marty, those are wondeful finds. I love Old World Santas as well, tho I haven't quite made a collection of them (yet). That green one is very nice. The deer is classic elegant as well. Congratulations on your fun finds.
