Who laughs this way? Ho! Ho! Ho!
Santa laughs this way! Ho! Ho! Ho! The culinary Santas, a unique collection, grace the hallway of the tea room this time of year. Their cheerful smiles and jaunty poses hint at the activities that take place in the kitchen on a daily basis. Pouring tea, rolling gingerbread, baking cookies, and crashing dishes... just a few of the goings on around here.
These two little guys, the international collection, are perched quietly on the oak side by side. They are subtle reminders of vacations past. The smallest Santa is a souvenir from Spain, purchased too many years ago to remember, and the rotund Santa is a purchase from a recent trip to Germany. Sweet remembrances tucked here and there!
