Christmas Cheer

Two "Brick" Santas (yes, they are made out of a brick).  A little paint, fabric, and "stuff" for a beard, and you have a cute Santa!






















This cute Santa on the left is a painted gourd. The Santa above is a painted cookie jar lid. No, I did not paint either one, but gosh I wish I could paint that well.
I did "pour and stain" this Nativity Set years ago.  It is always the first thing to be put out. I did promise my 3 children I would make a set for each of them--now I never said how old they might be before they received it!!!  I'm thinking it might be time to start on them.



A "pot" snowman and baskets I decorated are below.
The HOLIDAYS are here!
    I hope each and every day   before Christmas is filled with
     joy, laughter, and love.

All the decorations are beautiful. The brick Santas are interesting. I would never have thought to decorate a brick.

Many lovely Santas in your home! How cute your snowman is!
The Native Set is interesting to me. I feel as if I were reading that famous story of three wise men. I’ll decorate my small Christmas tree which was bought for my son decades ago. Best wishes,
