I found this santa at a garage sale several years ago.  It stands about 4 feet tall and is made out of wood. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it.   And it was only 4 dollars.  What a buy!  It always feels like Christmas when we bring Santa out.  I just love him.  web-sg-006 

   This wreath is made with vintage ornaments that I have collected over the years.  It’s a miracle I haven’t broken it yet and it even survived moving to our new house…I probably just jinxed myself. 

I hope all of you have a merry Christmas!

  1. I loved the Santa and I so love the vintage ornament wreath. It’s just gorgeous. Happy VTT..have a wonderful weekend.

  2. How cool is that? I always love a garage sale bargain. Your wreath is awesome. I’ve always liked these. Merry Christmas.

  3. Oh.My.Goodness. Love your wreathe but it is best kept out of my hands. With my butter fingers and all. Merry Christmas!

  4. I love your Santa, too. You’ve given me an idea for all the old Christmas ornaments I’ve collected over the years. Your wreath is so very pretty.

  5. He is cute.

    Where do you put a 4 foot Santa?

  6. I love both of your decorations. Kind of makes me wonder what someone was thinking when using such a dark blue, but the contrast adds to its charm.

  7. Oh that is one beautiful Santa! What a great find! Love your wreath too! :0

  8. I love vintage santa – but I also love what you’ve done with the vintage ornaments! I have some old glass baubles I dare not put on the tree, and this would be a great way to display them safely. Thanks for the idea!

  9. Wonderful Santa! and your vintage ornament wreath is beautiful!

  10. You did a great job on your wreath. It is a very pretty and something that really has a meaning to you.

  11. That wooden Santa is so awesome! I’ve never seen one for sale anywhere, but you better believe that if I did, he would be coming home with me! And your vintage wreath is so gorgeous. I’m hoping to pick up alot of old ornaments after Christmas real cheap, and make one next year!
    Merry Christmas and Happy VTT!

  12. I love your ornament wreath. My grandmother used to have one like it. I also like your retro Santa. I have always wanted a Santa for our front yard. Maybe next year….

  13. What a cute Santa! I would’ve bought him too. The wreath is really pretty!

  14. Oh, your Santa is wonderful! Wish I’d found him for my Santa collection!

  15. I love your wreath, and what a beauty it turned out to be…love all the ornaments. Have a great VTT!

  16. This is a great Santa!

    I really like your ornament wreath. They look a lot like the ornaments we had on our tree when i was little. My father threw them all out when they planned to move. :(
