Vintage Christmas Monday .... A Wink From Santa

For Vintage Christmas Monday I found something a little better than last week ... these two cute ceramic, handmade Santa Clauses from 1963 ... signed by 'MB' ... in my opinion 'MB' was a wonderful artist, not quite sure my photos do her work justice, but the painting on these Santas is superb! .... their cheeks are just the perfect shade of rosey pink and I could swear their baby blue eyes have a sparkle to them!

Head on over to Joan's at Anything Goes Here our hostess for this holiday party to visit all the participants, that's where I'm trotting off to! Lots of inspiration to be found ....


For more Holiday fun ... check back tomorrow ... for a virtual holiday home tour party! ... uh oh, I feel the party train rolling in again ; )

  2. I love the little "o" that his mouth makes! Makes me wonder what he's singing.

  3. Is this a party you are hosting tomorrow? When I write up my recap I can add it. Let me know.

    You are right about MB being an artist. They are very nicely painted. xo Joan, your Vintage Christmas Monday hostess.

  8. Whoever MB was, she was a very talented painter! I've recently picked up a few pieces that were handpainted too, dated way back in the 1990s! I love them!
    Happy Vintage Christmas!

  9. How sweet is he!! I love Santas! I'm not participating in Vintage Christmas as I don't have anything really other than my brother's and my Christmas stockings from the 50s! I posted them on my blog today :)

    Hugs,
