ceramic Santas at Pier One

I love Pier One. I think it's fabulously trendy and horrifyingly common but it's got some great finds, if you pick and choose wisely. And their holiday stuff is ALWAYS fabulous.

Their ceramic Santas are lovely this year. Maybe at $15 I can justify buying all three? You think? :)

lenox santa cookie jar

First: my apologies to all for being so behind in updates - family emergencies over the past month have taken up a great deal of my time. I have many things simmering in the background for this site, which you should see more of soon!

But first, a Santa to share: this Florentine & Pearl Jeweled Santa Cookie Jar is absolutely stunning...

Most of the time, I find that Lenox's Santa collectibles are a tad too traditional for me, but this is just a lovely piece. And recently, I've become more addicted to cookie jar figurines. That may, of course, be due to the fact that my figurine display case is crammed full of Santas (pictures to come soon) but my kitchen still has room to spare... ;)

renaissance Santa

Now that I finally have the Gregorian Santa I've wanted for several years, it's time to choose a new Fitz and Floyd Santa to covet, and the decision was not hard. The Renaissance Santa figurine from their Renaissance Christmas Collection is equally lovely and makes my heart ache just to look at it.

Renaissance Santa

Sadly, this piece is not yet on sale, but I will be watching like a hawk, just in case. ;)

san francisco music box goodness

So it's April, which means the Christmas stuff has been down for long enough that I feel like doing some more Santa hunting. Dropped by the San Francisco Music Box Company to find:

Musical Santa Wine Box

Father Christmas Candleholder

Too pretty. Yes, they have some cheesy stuff, but I really love this company. Not the least of which because they're from my favourite city.

also from fitz and floyd

Since I was picking up the Gregorian Santa anyway and paying the shipping, I thought I'd peek around to see what else they had on sale.

I found this cute candy jar on sale for $10:

And also this little musical figurine I wrote about a while back, for $13.50:

So I picked up both (how could I resist those prices). Talk about a Santa-licious day. :)

pretty Lenox figurine

Hand-painted, bonded porcelain Santa with a Russian-y look about him. Lenox has some really fun collectible stuff for Christmas.

and two medium-sized reindeer

Doesn't anyone build authentic stuff (a.k.a. eight tiny reindeer) anymore? Doesn't matter, I still want it...

While I'm a huge fan of Fitz and Floyd's stunning Gregorian and Renaissance figurines, I've never been a huge fan of small, wide Santa figurines.

This Santa (pictured above) changed my mind. How cute.

Don't get me wrong. I'm still dying for the Gregorian and Renaissance Santas.

thomas kinkade santas

20030725-7.jpg

A new series of Santas by Thomas Kinkade, with his famous winterscapes painted on the inside of Santa's robes. My biggest problem with this new collection is nowhere on the web site does it say how many will be issued, or how often. Erg.
