This is a Santa Claus tree topper that my son made in kindergarten or maybe preschool.  So it’s somewhere around 25 years old.  I used it for the top of our Christmas tree every year until it was just about falling apart. 

 Last year I decided to frame it and just hang it on the wall to be able to enjoy it and preserve it also.  I used a deep frame, laid it on red velvet and made squiggles out of silver pipecleaners just to add a little pizzazz.  Now I can still enjoy it year after year.

Grand Dog Fred and Granddaughter Gracie had their first visit with Santa today.  Couldn’t resist sharing this for Camera Critters.  Hey are those Muck Boots from Garden Shoes Online that Santa is wearing?

I bought this Santa sign at a garage sale for $4.  I couldn’t believe my luck, that I had found it.  It stands about 4 ft tall and is made out of wood.   I think it may have been an advertisement of some sort long ago.  Whatever it was, it has new life now bringing Christmas spirit into our home year after year.

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!
