My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

The Santa Room

My parents decorate from floor to ceiling with several different themed rooms. The first room is the Santa Claus room, and it's starting to come together. Here are some pictures so far:

My folks picked up these large red display cabinets at a local auction a few weeks ago, so there's a lot of work to be done arranging things. They collect some very high quality Christmas items, and I hope that I'll have these things passed down to me some day. If you're familiar with Royal Doulton, you'll recognize the character or "toby" jugs. The figurines are Simpich dolls, a now-defunct cottage industry from Colorado Springs. The pictures don't do these things justice.

Above the piano are some more Simpich dolls. Hanging on the wall are original Thomas Nast Harpers Weekly pages.
