Christmas Santas for Ruby Tuesday

As this is theSanta Season we see that red-coated gift giver everywhere. We have 5 little believers in out family and its exciting to talk with out hopeful grandchildren on the telephone about their expectations. The photo above has ties with our family. The little ceramic Santa that used to wind up and play a Christmas tune is old, as it belonged to my husband's family when he was a little boy and it now has come down through the generations. The wooden, painted Santa was designed and painted by our daughter Riel,http://www.rielnason.com/ she was always a very creative child.

keepsakes of old
remind us of stories told
of Christmases past
decorated with red
our hopes inter twined with that colour
and that rotund jolly fella
we believed
and ah! that gifts that we achieved!
spread around the floor under the Christmas tree
It was such a magical time
blended with church bells chimes.

Seasons's greetings to all and to all the best in the upcoming new year
Merry Christmas

The Santa on the left looks a little bewildered--maybe because he's flattened! Merry Christmas!


Red hat, I am lonesome.
Red hat, are you free?
Red hat, please consider
Coming home with me.

I need a companion,
One who’ll warm my head;
I think you’ll do nicely,
Hat of brilliant red.

You’re the warmest color,
Not like blue or green—
Red hat at the vendor’s,
Red hat, you’re my queen.
