Santa Christmas Mantle 2009

This year I decorated our fireplace mantle with my collection of Santas - across the top left to right:  1) Santa Stocking Holder (gift from work exchange years ago); 2) wooden Santa purchased at craft fair; 3)  two little vintage Santas (passed down from my Mom); vintage red reindeer (Mom's too); Santa candle; and lighted outdoor miniature Santa.  
Across brick:  1) Santa stocking (passed down from MIL); 2) two crocheted snowflakes I made; Santa Face (is a toilet seat cover but I like it here LOL).  
Followed on brick floor by: 1) small wooden Santa (FIL made) and large wooden Santa (made by co-worker years ago).  On yes you can see a wooden reindeer to the right (FIL made it too). 
 I didn't stage this picture so my crochet boxes are caught in the photo on the left.
