Let’s Go Visiting: Christmas at Connie’s

Connie and I have lived three houses apart for over six years, but we only just met because she was really living in London and Singapore and her house here was just storing her Christmas decorations. Connie loves Christmas. Actually, she LOVES Christmas. Lower case letters do not adequately express  her love. Her collection of decorations is AMAZING (again, lower case does not suffice). Her collection reflects her Canadian-living-in-America-while-actually-living-abroad lifestyle.

Believe me when I tell you that what you see here is just a portion of Connie’s collection! Let’s start with her international Santas:
