This is my "Kitchen Santa" collection. The middle Santa is from my childhood. My Dad managed an AJ Bayless store and He got to keep this velvet CokaCola Santa. I have also collected vintage Santa mugs for a while. I only displayed a few this year. I just haven't gotten into the "real" decorating mood. I just cringe thinking about putting it all away, weird state of mind I know. Maybe it's just a weird time right now with the economy and all. Do any of you feel this way , just this year, for some reason?

Yeah, Christmas does seem a little anti-climatic this year. I don't know what it is. Probably the economy, though I like to pretend we'll all be fine. (Even though the cover story on MSNBC was "Prepare to lose your job." Ugh, yikes?)

Your Santas did get me in the mood a bit, though. Can't wait to see you next week!

This year I have been particularly aware of the "putting back" part even before I have gotten to the "putting up" part.

Who knows how I'll feel, once I actually start the "putting up". In the meantime I'm feeling the retro vibes from your Kitchen Santas and enjoying every minute.

I haven't put up one single decoration! I have felt very Blah in the decorating category. I am going to put some up today so at least I can have some festive pictures of Daisy's first Christmas!

I didn't put up my nativity set this year. And it's my favorite decoration. I only got out one small box of ornaments for the kids to put on the tree. When I thought of getting out more I just wondered how much of it would get broken. Even though I don't think my husband's job is in jeopardy, I think the economy has me in a funk. It's really depressing when your friends are losing their jobs or afraid they will soon.
