Santa Claus Collection on the Mantel by Candlelight

Steve hauled the boxes down from the third floor.  I got to unearth the Santas, most of them gifts to me from friends.  The Nutcracker one from Germany.  And the Deborah McLaren (click to see last year’s display by Steve) painting behind. The house started to feel festive! The candles bright. We even put up the tree.

The stockings are hung. At least all the little sock and shoe-like ornaments.
