Santa's Coming to Town

Once again this year, the Santa collection is on display in the tea room.  They merrily great you as enter the main hallway, right inside the front entrance.

The smallest Santa on the shelf was a souvenir from Spain.  And the rotund wooden one behind him, with the droopy hat with a tiny bell was purchased in Germany. 

One of my favorites, the jolly old elf pouring tea was a gift from a good friend.  He fits right into the collection as if he's been here since forever.

Another friend of the family stitched the small framed piece which sits on the oak side-by-side.  If you look closely, it says Santa's pot of tea, a perfect accompaniment to the little Santa tea pot that rests beside it.  What type of tea do you suppose Santa prefers?

Hmm. I'll bet Santa likes Candy Cane flavored teas. But then he's a world traveler, so he could be into oolong, puerh, a good Darjeeling—who knows! LOVE that Santa figurine pouring tea, and the cross-stitch made by a friend. What special pieces!

Oh I was going to say he would prefer Candy Cane Lane from Celestial Seasoning. I always love seeing your collection, especially the Santa pouring tea.
