Merriment day #4 HO HO HO

I so blame Tammy over a A Primitive Place for this one!  For the last couple of years, I have seen and longing for her vintage Santa collection!  Go peek, she has a wonderful collection!!!!  Every time I stumble on them, they want a FORTUNE for them.... Until this summer, a estate sale was showing this collection for sale and by the time I got there... They were all still there... I got all of them for about $25 buck!  Still needs some playing around with in my old prim cradle.... Hiding in the back all things Joey plays with when she visits "Auntie Re's house"  It's always tea party time....
Throat a wee bit better today...Boy that was ugly yesterday.  For everyone who said they have this crud too, hope everyone is feeling better! Need to do a little Christmas shopping today... Need to start.  OLM

Oh Marie,
You know I love this display!
Hey I don't think I have any Santas like these... Humm...
Don't look, I'm running over and stealing them from ya! ;)
What an awesome deal you got on them. Way to go!!
I'm feeling a wee bit better today. Still have this stupid headache though. :(
House showing tonight so I get to clean all day. Yippee!
I guess someone wants to get out and go on a holiday tour this evening. ;)
Have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs
Tam

Awesome Santa's Marie. They are really fun to look at. You have a nice collection there and only $25? That's a steal. Glad your throat is a little better. Hope you can get some shopping done this weekend. -Steph-

I love Tammy's collection of vintage Santas, too, so I can see why you were on the look-out for some! You got a great deal on your's... they are fantastic!! Way to go!
Glad you're feeling better.... I had that sore throat thing about a month and a half ago... still trying to get rid of the remaining symptoms.... post-nasal drip and sneezing.... Sheesh... it takes a long time to get rid of.... Hope you can kick your's faster than me!
Have fun shopping!

Taking it all in....thinking next year's swap....lots of collections I can add to...although no elves would make it into the box because Tim would scarf them up & hide them for himself. You have lots of lovelies. Still thinking how I can get that blue table from you. Going on vacation anytime soon?? LOL

Glad you're feeling better~Becky
