Five In Five On The 5th - December

Five in Five On The 5th -

Joining in with Sandie's Five in Five On The Fifth at: Sandie At Itchifingers

As it is pouring rain outside with accompanying thunder & lightening I dare not venture outside. Hard to believe it's rain on December 5th but no worries, tomorrow the temperature drops dramatically & rain turns to snow! 

SO my 5 in 5 on the 5th are taken inside & in spite of lights & flash on, things are still quite dark, but no matter, my 5 are of the happy & light kind.

Five Santas from my collection with 5 accompanying Christmas quotes I like. I made the first & third Santas.

 
 Christmas waves a magic wand over the world & behold, everything is softer & more beautiful (Norman Vincent Peale)



It's not what's under the tree that matters, but who's around it.

Christmas, my child is love in action ( Dale Evans)

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other (Burton Hills)

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love (Hamilton Wright Mabie)

    1. Thank you. The last Santa was an accidental find a couple years ago - he, I think was hiding out on the back shelf waiting for me to find him. He's definitively a favourite.

    1. Those two Santas that I made was in a quest to find my artist self & a neighbour use to do ceramics in her basement (she still does). My Victoria Santa is really much more burgundy than red in the photo.

    1. Thanks Sandie. I recently did a little inventory taking on my "artist" attempts over the years, I kept trying different things to find the one that I could excel at but I gave up to quickly on many but this year I discovered why. The Artist's Way rocks.

    1. Thank you Karen. When I unpack all my Santas I remember each one's story as how they came to be with me.

    1. Thanks Tracy - this is just a small sampling of the collection which I put a halt on adding more - no storage room!

  7. Those Santa are so adorable! It is impressive to know that you made two of them! They are charming! As an English learner as a hobby, the first quote is quite kind to me. I am smiling! Have a good day.

    1. Thank you Tomoko. The first quote is my favourite so far. I admire you hobby of learning English, it seems to be a lost language now with so many shorten forms for Twitter & such.

    1. Thanks Maggie - it's only a small part of my Santa collection. I've said no more but if that "perfect" Santa appears I hope he can come home with me ...
