Rummaging through antique stores at Christmas can be lots of fun. I never really buy anything; I take photos. And the people, who own the merchandise usually don’t mind. In fact, they will move things so I can get a better shot. This year, I’m on a hunt for old Christmas decorations. The ones above are not in that category. They are newer but make a nice photo. The Santa below is not really that old either. He just reminds me of my friend Ann, who went through a phase of collecting Christmas “yard art.” I have a feeling she would love this “Santa Baby,” too.

“Oh, you better watch out. Better not cry! Better not pout! I’m telling you why, Santa Claus is comin’ to town.”
