Santa Tree


I am joining Sundays With Santa hosted by Maureen at Yuletide Greetings.

I’m also joining Deck the Halls Sunday, hosted by Terri at Artful Affirmations
I am linking as well to Keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive 365, where Natasha is featuring 12 Days of Christmas Traditions. The theme for December 4 is Oh, Christmas Tree!

I’m sharing one of the trees in my study; this one has a Santa theme. I bought it for $3.00 at the thrift store last week. It is a bit slanted, but still serves its purpose to display my Santa ornaments. Because of difficulty in finding a nearby outlet that was free, I decided to not add lights to this tree, at least for now.

The tree topper is a tin ornament of Santa carrying a tree and a bag with stars.

The tree skirt is red rimmed in white, so it echoes a traditional Santa cap.

Decorative picks help to fill out the tree

The ornaments are of various materials – ceramic, wood, resin, blown glass, embroidered plastic canvas, cloth, silverplate, and stained glass.





Under the tree are various containers -- tins, covered boxes, boots, mugs, plus a bell I received as a gift many Christmases ago:
