Santa Sideboard Metamorphosis or my Miracle on 34th Street
A new addition to our home this year brings an opportunity to spread out the annual Santa Celebration. I posted about metamorphosizing the new Sideboard here and the 2010 Santasation here (last year they were spread out around the house.) So, it was with great delight that as I unpacked each Santa, like greeting an old friend, I was able to put them all together on our Arts & Crafts Sideboard.

lovely intangibles. You'll discover those are the only things that are
~ Fred Gailey, Miracle on 34th Street
This Santa found his way into my heart because of his regal, Nordic look.
"All my life I've wondered something, and now's my chance to find out.
I'm going to find the answer to a question that's puzzled the world for
centuries. Does Santa Claus sleep with his whiskers outside or in?"
