More St. Nicholas
Here are a few more photos of my St. Nicholas collection. I have been collecting them for years. The large icon I wrote 6 years ago. Then small, silver icon was a treasured gift. I have an old candy mold, and a chalk statue made from an old candy mold, and a wax figuring made from an old candy mold. I have one from Russia, and one from Kohl's department store. I try to find a new one every year. These photos are from last year, because truthfully this year all I have done is put up the icons. I will be unpacking all the rest this week, so I can show you all more specific photos if you wish.
I have received a few of these as gifts, some I have found at craft fairs and thrift stores, as well as gift shops. Not all of them are St. Nicholas as Bishop. Some are St. Nick as early Santa, some are praying Santa's, and some are just Santa, but there is something about them that calls to me and makes me think of the real, true, St. Nicholas.
Thanks for asking, everyone, about my St. Nicholas'. I really enjoy keeping a look out for him wherever I am!
