Santa really likes glazed sugar cookies 'round these parts. Pick me! Pick me!

Erin O. said...

Ha! At our house, Santa has been cramming so much junk food in her mouth this year that by the time Christmas Eve rolls around, all she'll want is a Superfood shake and perhaps some tums. :)

Thanks for a great year, Marta. Discovering your blog has been one of my highlights.

Monika said...

The plate is uber-cute, but those bowls...oh, those bowls. Next stop, check out her stuff to see if I can actually afford to buy something. BTW-I so enjoy reading your blog. Your insights, musings as a mother and young wife, craftiness and joy for life are a ray of sunshine on a gloomy day (which it is around here).

Cass said...

Santa prefers chocolate chippers for sure & an orange for Santa's reindeer.
Jac once carved an initial in the oranges in his fruit bowl before Christmas eve - only to find the same orange in his stocking the next morning! Talk about devastation! Watch out kids are sneaky.

Megan May said...

Carrots and celery for the reindeer, and for Santa if he's looking for some healthy alternatives to crunch on!

If the giveaway is still open, I'd love to throw in my name for a chance at that darling plate...

Santa loves undercooked cookies and diet coke at our house - oh wait, that's Mrs. Santa. SANTA loves Mt.Dew and Christmas candy.

Carrot sticks for the reindeer, too.

In our household Santa prefers egg nog mixed with sprite and pecan tassies. Sometimes peanut butter blossoms end up on the cookie for Mrs. Santa! :)

Beautiful plate. It would look great on my fireplace for Santa. My son asked to give Santa cookies for the first time this year!!!

Happy Holidays.

Heidi said...

At my house, Santa prefers cat food. Or at least that's what was attached to the outside of the present under our tree last Christmas. Haha... I guess our cat was responsible for doing all the wrapping.

Love, love love this artist! Have a candle pot of hers and have given several coffee mugs as gifts! Santa prefers plain jane traditonal frosting embellished sugar cookies and milk. His reindeer get a little more fanciful with their reindeer food (a little different each year, but always a base of oats, chocolate chips and lots and lots of glitter)!

Well to be honest this will be our first Christmas giving to Santa. I think I want to be extra good to him and give him his favorite...Oreos...in a shake!
It'll fit perfectly on the plate.

Esmerelda Johnson said...

we're a classic, chocolate chip cookie kind of family

Lena said...

My sister and I got boxes of chocolates on Christmas Eve from a dear family friend, and we'd leave Santa the noughat ones we didn't like! My mom was always saying, Santa likes caramel, but we'd counter her and leave Santa the noughat, which wasn't Mom's favorite either!

alittleladyand3men said...

tammy said...

Abby said...

Love love love this etsy shop and this plate! We have a 2 year old and a new little one at home so I was thinking this year would be great to start leaving cookies for Santa!

Larraine said...

Santa appreciates Italian-American homes. He loves the plate featuring a couple of slices of crunchy Italian bread with sweet butter and a little prosciutto as well as a few pizzelles. He follows it up with a nice hot cup of dark roast coffee left for him in the thermos. Ciao!

Michelle said...

Krista said...

classic - milk and cookies!

Sarah said...

Chocolate chip cookies of course!

jaytee'sbtw said...

Definitely chocolate milk with vanilla double stuffed oreo cookies!! And Santa wouldn't mind a bowl of peanut m&m's if they happened to be sitting next to the plate of cookies and glass of milk!!!

April said...

Usually it's just cookies and milk in our household. Today, however, I was watching my nephew, and he said, "Auntie, do you have the recipe for Kraft macaroni and cheese?" When I answered yes (a box in my pantry!), he continued, "Can we leave that for Santa this year?"

If his parents won't do it, I certainly will!

Just discovered your blog, and I love it!

Trace Face said...

Santa Loves Cookies and Milk! Pretty plate!

loretta said...

When Santa enters my warm house he will smell the scent of evergreen candles with Christmas music playing in the background. There will be warm, homemade, frosted cinnamon rolls & cold milk waiting for him. And of course for the reindeer instead of boring carrots I'll give them some flavorful cereal.

KP said...

Sooo cute! We leave the standard, milk and cookies. Need something to wash it down with. Don't forget the reindeer....always sprinkle reindeer food on the front lawn.....

Angela said...

We leave carrots for the reindeer, and milk and chocolate chip and sugar cookies. We also talk about how we think we hear reindeer hooves on the roof or something in our fireplace. Oh the memories!

Silsine said...
