On my upstairs landing lives a small collection of Santa figures and Santa letters.
I love the old Santa stationary. This fellow wanted a watch most of all. Plus a game and a globe.
The flip side of the stationary offers tips for letter writing to Santa
My stocking collection also lives on my landing.
I bought this swan clip piece a few years ago and it perfect to hang my tiny stockings.
Going up the stairs to the landing is my collection of vintage foil candy cones.
More snippets to come...

Enjoying a cup of coffee and your blog :-) So it looks like every nook and cranny in your house must be decorated! What a cute letter to Santa.Brings back memories of my kids doing that (recently)and asking for carrots for the reindeer! I'm going to "borrow" your idea for hanging the stockings on the window.....Love that! I don't think I need to gush anymore on your decorating:-)I could go on and on.
Thanks for sharing your pics!

After a major snow storm yesterday, I'm back at work and am just now seeing your snippets. What wonderful vintage loveliness. My favorite and it is so hard to choose is the canned ice. I love the snowman graphics.

Love those candy cones. My husband is from Germany and every year we stop at World Market to buy a few traditional German treats to send to my MIL for Christmas. I'm always Jonesing after the candy cones but he swears he doesn't remember those from his childhood. I know I don't recall ever seeing one when I was a child so always wonder about that tradition.

Ok. Now I'm convinced that I need to rescue more estate sale Christmas stockings so that I can create your happy vignette. Such darling Santas and your letter collection is very sweet. Foil cones...so festive. Your landing is just lovely. What a happy little spot.

So fun! Love those letters. I know I had a couple as a kid, but they're not around anymore :(

What a great way to display the Christmas stockings I love it and I spy my son's sock up there from 1962! He still has it at his home.

Oh my Fred Meyer Santa letter! TOO COOL for school! I am officially jealous... Another memory of PDX, we were instantly FM shoppers because there were no Target stores like we had in MN when we arrive in 79!

The stocking hung window is so charming. Any info on the foil cones?
