Who’s That Kissing Santa Claus?

The yard sales yielded a few vintage Christmas items last month that I want to share with you…..

This lovely bell-shaped dish intrigued me when I saw it; but, when I turned it over I was surprised and thrilled to find that it was manufactured by Holt Howard in 1964.

And check out this delightfully happy Santa!

He’s actually printed life-sized on a vinyl door panel....

I can’t decide whether or not to open the package. I’m guessing it’s from the 60s or 70s?

Finally …..Who IS that Kissing Santa Claus?

When I found this ceramic music box, I thought the pretty lady with Santa was Mrs. Claus in her green fur-lined dress; however, the music box plays “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus!”

So who IS that kissing Santa Claus???

I’m linking to the following parties:
