Karen, these are all so beautiful. I can't pick a favorite.
They are all so elegant in their own way. Your new
sleigh w/reindeer is gorgeous. I'm so happy no one
else bid and you have a new one for your collection.
Are all of them this large?

TFS, Punk

Punk, most of the pieces aren't real big. The first Santa, and the 4th (little Santa and reindeer w sleigh, are fairly small. About 4" high. Most of the Santas are around 9" I believe. The laying reindeer in other post, and the Penguins, are the big pieces.

I am sorry Mikasa decided to no longer make these. There are quite a few I don't have tho, so if I feel the 'need', LOL, I can still add to mine. Several other Snowmen, I just have the one.

Thank you Gang, for enjoying the collection too. I loved all your sweet comments on it.
hugs, Karen

Jeanne, you mean the Santa with the arctic animals? That would go with those gorgeous Winterfrost dishes of yours. Since I'm such an animal lover, I really like when I find Santas with 'critters'.

hugs, Karen

Yes, that's the one, purplemoon...I see one on e-bay ... I'm thinking it over ...quite pricey ... to buy it 'new in a box' ... but I may be worth it! LOL! ;-) Jeanne S.

Darn it Jeanne.....do NOT buy the one you saw on eBay.
Tho I do agree, you are most definitely worth it :o)

Now my cover is blown, you can expect a box the first part of next week from a lady in MN.

I had hoped to surprise Jeanne, anonymously.....that didn't work out so well. LOL. I felt she needed a little spoiling and when she said how much she loved this piece, it gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. The lady gave me a smokin' deal on it, and said it should be there Monday!! :o).

hugs, Karen

Lovely! Can't pick a favorite. I love the color scheme. That little touch of gold lends to the sophistication of the pieces.
