i look at this santa all year round.
have him up non stop because he is a porcelain work of art.
i love the expressions on the animals faces as they are gazing up at him with adoring eyes,
kept close by his side and the intricate pattern on his plump coat.
if this santa could talk, he would be tender and kind, and would be
most grateful he gets a place front and center in my home.
he is an old fitz and floyd piece, a cookie jar in fact, which stands almost 2 feet tall.
they just dont make them like this anymore.
so i noticed him today for some reason,
and decided he needed to be recognized,
since it is his season, you know.
