Slowly But Surely

My  Santas  are  appearing!


You have to have a nutcracker Santa!!


 
Love this Santa and Angel--nice and tall--at  least  12 inches high.






























My  husband  is  a longtime  devoted  Cleveland  Brown  fan!

So  these  are just the tip of the iceberg--there's more waiting to come out---yes,  I'm  still decorating  my  house.  You  see the problem  is my house itself--its'  been  so  neglected (I  really  feel  bad  for it) I'm  trying  to  clean  as  I  go, and that's  what's  taking me so  long.  I  keep  thinking--why clean it--it's   just  going  to  get  dirty  again--so it's  taking  me  a  looooong  time.

But  before  I  get back  to  my  house,  I  want  to  make sure  that  I  thank   Theresa  for  adding  me  to  her  Etsy  treasury--this  is  so  cool  Theresa!!


And  also,  you  may  have  noticed  on my  sidebar  the One  World  One  Heart  Event  Button.  I  didn't participate  last  year, but  I  sure  am  this  year--a wonderful  way  to  meet  bloggers  all  over  the  world,  because  this  event  is  Huge.  So  go  check  it  out  here--2011  will  be  the  last  year  for  it.

I love the tall, skinny Santas. That is my favorite style. I know what you mean about the cleaning. I don't dust much and when I start moving things around to decorate for Christmas it means time to dust - bah humbug!

Emelie said...

I thought I would come by and say hi, so then I see your cleaning, I talked about cleaning this morning on my blog also and realized that I really want to clean when I can't, if I could I wouldn't, that is the nature of me. It is the same with the decorations, now that I can't get them down with out help I really want to see them, before I didn't really care.
UGH..
You have nice santas, that is also a lovely angel, I can see why she is favored.

Serena said...

You have quite an impressive Santa collection! I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Oh wow, those are some great Santas. I love them all. I usually buy one or two decorations every Christmas because I already have all I need, but I think I will start adding Santas every year. Very nice, thanks for sharing.

Gloria said...

Oh I forgot to say that I do have a lot of Santa Claus cookie jars that are on a shelf in my pantry room. bye now.

So fun to see your santas. We just put our tree and stockings up on Monday, we're late too. Maybe you could hire someone to clean your house to free up time for you to decorate and do a little painting too of course. :)
Hugs to you,
jenny

What a great Santa collection! I love this time of year and pulling out all the festive stuff. I also love that Santa you found in your last post- so unusual!

Great great collection Diane! Makes me smile!

Deb Harvey said...

Hi Diane!

We have more in common! Your little Santa with the burlap sack...I have one just like it! And my nephew was/is a Cleveland Brown...long story. I'll let you know more about that later. (Those players can get moved around a lot)

I love your Santa collection and I can't wait to see the rest!

I've missed reading your blog...a lot!

Buffy said...

Love seeing your collection of santas and love the angel too. I know what you mean about the house being neglected,I'm cleaning today or at least making an attempt,I have company coming for the weekend,which means no art! UGGG.

I feel Christmas spirit just looking at your blog Diane~
Love..love your collections...!!!!!!!!!!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, I love all these. I am a tree nut, but I may just have to replace them with Santas. Yours are all gorgeous and so unique. I understand cleaning and decorating. That's why I didn't really decorate much this year. No time or energy to do it. Keep them coming, though. And I'll be joining you on OWOH.

Cathy Bueti said...

Congrats on the treasury! And I love your santas! :)

WrightStuff said...

I love your delightful Santas. I feel so festive today that it was quite a shock to realise it's still over a week to the big day!

Ophelia said...

ahh...the neglected home....I wish that were foreign to me!!! I do love your santas...and thanks for the One World link...I will go and check it out! Happiest of Holidays to you...

Heather said...

I love all the Santas but I think I like the Nutcracker one the best. And you have the same Idea I have.... Why clean it is just going to get dirty anyway???

Theresa said...

Very sweet Santas D! Congrats on the etsy treasury and I feel your pain being married to a Brownie fan;)

Diana said...

I love your Santa collection. I have a bunch of nutcrackers. Very fun. I so need to stop fussing with the decorations and start gift shopping!

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Fabulous Santas!!!! I love collecting snowmen - it's kind of an obsession. They are EVERYWHERE! LOL Thanks so much for mentioning the treasury I made - it's been doing rather well. Your girl SO deserved to be there! Theresa
