Santa Baby

Merry Christmas Eve!  Or, if that ain’t your thang, Happy December 24th!  I’ll be signing off for a bit to enjoy the holidays with my family; but not without leaving your eyeballs some before and after holiday goodness first.

This cute little sleigh was built by Tracy’s dad years ago. She displayed on the front porch every Christmas, stuffed with presents or evergreens.  One year, she noticed it was looking pretty shabby, and not the chic kind.  So she gave it a thin coat of black paint that let the old red shine through a tad, and painted on Santa’s crest.  Very Dickinsonian!  See more on Tracy’s blog General Splendour.

Hmm, what could this pile of cruddy old wood possibly become? How about a rustic frame for a vintage Santa print? Fa-la-la-la Fabulous!  And, if you happen to have a pile of cruddy old wood yourself, not to mention a chop saw, you can make one to.  Step by step instructions from Lindsey at Lindsay and Drew.

I’ll be back soon with a best of 2012 round-up.  Till then, thank you SO much for your support of this here blog.  All the kind words and comments mean so much more to me than you know.  I couldn’t do any of this at all without you, my fabulous reader, and all your kindness and willingness to share.  Here’s wishing you:
