REDnesday - Santa Claus House

It's REDnesday!

Here's a mosaic of two of my favorites - RED and Santa Claus!

We arrived in the North Pole, Alaska on Wednesday, June 23, and are having lots of fun sightseeing here and in nearby Fairbanks, Alaska.  My hubby knew I wouldn't be satisfied until we visited the Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska so he took me over there first thing.  I knew he was a smart hubby.  I was in heaven and enjoyed looking at all the neat Christmas stuff.  We are limited on storage place in the RV so I had to be careful of my selections.  I have so much Christmas decorations but there is always room for more...ho, ho.  

The town of North Pole has adopted Christmas as its theme so many of the street light poles are wrapped in red and white just like candy canes.

This must be the LARGEST Santa Claus statue in the world!

The tile murals on the store walls were fantastic.  This is a close up of Santa in his sled.

Isn't this cute of Rudolph the Reindeer?

This is the Santa Claus House's main entrance.  I always say it isn't too early to start thinking about Christmas.

Please join our host Sue at It's A Very Cherry World (here) for more REDnesday!  

Now is the time to start working on your Christmas projects! 

I'm dreaming of a RED Christmas, just like the ones I use to know....

  1. Oh I'm envious, I'd love to visit Santa Claus House!!! I'll bet it was a great time, I'm on the lookout for Christmas year round too!

  2. Didn't we just have Christmas? I can't believe the year has gone so fast but no I can't think of Christmas.
    However when I travel I usually buy a Christmas decoration as a momento so go ahead, Christmas decorations aren't very big. You'll be able to fit a tiny one somewhere in your RV


  3. I didn't know such a place exsisted. I love that building. I'll bet you had a great time. You're right-never too early for Christmas!

  4. That shop looks like such a fun place to visit! Who wouldn't want to look at Christmas things, any time of year? I hope you're going to show what you bought. Maybe next REDnesday? Looks like you're having a great trip!
    Happy REDnesday and Happy 4th!

  5. HO-HO-HO...... What a fun posting. Thanks for the update on where you are at. It's so much fun to follow along on this adventure with you two. Keep'em coming.


  6. It's never too early to think of Christmas! What a fun place and what a fun post.

  7. Oh Sandy, my hubby won't be happy with you now - I so want to visit Santa's house - top of my "one-day lists" ☺

  8. What a magical place Sandy!

    Did you see many children - wouldn't they just love it?!

  9. Seems funny thinking about Xmas when we've got a heatwave over here! Still it'll be here before we know it! Thanks for dropping by and for your lovely comment.

  11. Sandy, it looks like so much fun! I bet you wanted to buy the store out!

  12. Hi Sandy,
    I've been trying to catch up on your blog, so many wonderful places you've been! I absolutely love the picture of the lake with reflection in Canada! We sure enjoyed Santa Claus House and the candy cane light posts. It is fun seeing the flower pictures too. We left just as things were beginning to bloom there. So fun!

  13. What a neat place! Have fun!
