Past Due Tuesday ~ Santa Baby

Welcome to Past Due Tuesday, where all things vintage get their due by sharing them with others!

If you are new and would like to participate in “PDT”, please follow the instructions below. We would love to have you join us!

We're deep in SANTA MODE here at the shop, so we donned our snowshoes and set out in hunt of the jolly vintage ceramic Santa's who have taken up residence for our upcoming sale this month! He's a busy guy, but let's see if we can catch him before he dashes off with his reindeer to his appointed rounds.

Looks like Santa threw a shoe! That would make a cute planter!

His eyes-how they twinkled!
Santa head sugar and creamer. Look at those blue eyes! These are the only ones that were marked. They say "Thelma" on the bottom.

His dimples how merry! Santa "tumbler".

His cheeks were like roses
Spaghetti Santa (these are getting harder to find, but they remain as popular as ever).

his nose like a cherry!
Big Santa cookie jar giving us Santa's famous wink!

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
Santa pitcher and mugs. There's those clear blue eyes again, giving us another wink!

And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
More Santa mugs!

Santa salt & pepper set

But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

2) Add a link to your blog (in the MckLinky area at the bottom of this post).

3) Feel free to add the "Past Due Tuesday" button to your post or your blog’s sidebar.
