First Post of 2010

Gosh, I am not off to a very fast blogging start!!

Yesterday I took down most of the Christmas decorations.  Our entry now looks like this. 

For Christmas I put out several collections of Santas.  Pictured below are some of the santas. Santas are fun because like people they come in all different, shapes, sizes, ages, and sexes.  I have always thought the female, or Ms. Santa gets the short end of credit and exposure.  Most of them were given to me as gifts.  The very small bell on the left side of the shelf was found when I helped clean out my Grandmother's basement.  I love the bell.  Most of the santas on the side board are by Isabel Bloom.   

Last year my goal was to post weekly.  I made the goal!  That did not mean I posted every week.  It does mean there were over 52 posts.  I will try to do the same or better this year.  I love the blogs that post every couple of days.  I just do not think that I will make that happen. 

I enjoy all comments and connections with my blog followers.  Thank you for stopping by.
