Old St. Nick is a favorite of mine at Christmas.
I don't have a true vintage St. Nick,
but I do have a small vintage style Santa Claus collection.
There's a charm about them that I love...
one that speaks to me about the spirit of giving.
After all, isn't that what Christmas is about?
One of our family's traditions at Christmastime was to
remember a family we knew to be in need...
often one whose husband/father was experiencing unemployment...
something we were familiar with ourselves...
and give in some way to that family.
One such year, we had a friend with a family of five children,
with whom we were blessed to be able to share.
Our children bought and wrapped toys for the five kids, and
my husband and I bought groceries for the family.
I'm sure you all have similar stories and experiences...
and can agree that there is so much fun, joy, and blessing in giving!
I appreciate you all stopping by for a visit,
