Freaky Santa

As a photographer, I love to take photos of kitschy things….. and this one takes the cake. This “vintage” Santa has freaked me out for the ten years that I’ve lived here. Maybe it’s retro, or nostalgic, but this Santa who always poses at the edge of Elm St. at the Easter Seals Christmas tree lot, is…

  • Derek via Facebook - Wooo. That IS freaky. How old is it?ReplyCancel

  • Martha via Facebook - hey Erika, this freaky santa used to be in Amherst at an auto garage for awhile. One year it met with a windy accident and for awhile it was in the side yard with his top half sitting on the ground next to his bottom. Then one year it disappeared, and reappeared in Manchester. That Santa gets around!ReplyCancel

Executive Chef Jason Jette, Sous Chef Vlad, and the team create such impressively stylish dishes that are so beyond anything you typically think of “hotel food.”  When they started bringing out the dishes to photograph, I was kind of in jaw-dropping…


Goffstown Main Street | Photos

This weekend I took my 4-year old son to the village to check out the big Christmas tree in the town square, which just had its official tree lighting on Friday.  When we got there, the tree had not been turned on yet, so we parked the car and walked up one side of Main…

  • Sandi Wilhelm Wilson via Facebook - Cute decorations on all the stores… Nice job making a memory!! <3ReplyCancel

  • Susan Wilhelm Carlson via Facebook - It’s times like this that I miss New England. A few of the stores look like they could have come out of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. So quaint. The only thing missing is the snow…but that is coming, I’m sure. A light dusting for Christmas…just enough to make things white… I’m sure Drew was taking it all in.ReplyCancel

  • Candace D - I especially love the pic of the town hall. The color of the sky in the background is so pretty. Everything looks so dreamy!ReplyCancel
