A Mellow Yellow Christmas Trumpet

Santa trumpeting the news that Christmas is near!
This is a vintage Christmas toy called Santa's Candy Wagon. My Mom has had it for a long time and it sits out each Christmas on her TV stand.

That is so cute. These pictures are awesome. I like how you feature Santa in the top one and then in the second one it's the reindeer. I wouldn't even begin to know how to do that. But it sure is wonderful :)

Great captures, Carletta! Vintage toys are the best and this one is right up there. Love that yellow trumpet.

We seem to be in the same frame (no pun!) of mind this weekend. I also posted Santa and snow photos. :)

It is nice to keep those vintage things and pass it on to our kids or family members.

Great Christmas decor for the TV stand. Am sure your mom enjoyed that Santa's Candy Wagon every Christmas.
