Merry Christmas and Finding Santa(s) ...

I don't know where these past 3 weeks went. I was finishing up jobs, trying to get some organizing done around here, started painting my bathroom and doing a little bit of shopping. Because I do 98% of my shopping at secondhand stores, I get to pick up some vintage Santa's along the way to add to my Mr. Santa Salt Shaker.

I have a bunch of mini and regular sized hot chocolate Santa head mugs that I didn't pull down from storage, I was off track with Christmas this year and almost didn't even get any kind of tree up. But I did find a stashed bag of mini mugs that were an 'end of the clean up from last year' that never made it into the main boxes. Lucky for me, I found a few other Santa's at the thrift store to add to my collection, so I gathered them under the tree.

And the tree? I did climb up to the top shelf of the garage and get the box it's stored in. I pulled out the top half, took a bunch of the recently found vintage ornaments that were supposed to be for wreath craft day, and pulled out a tree topper that was earmarked for ebay. Voila! My small tree looking festive with Santa's showing off underneath.

I hope that you all are enjoying the holiday season and

have a very Merry Christmas!


  1. I love it!
    (I'm still adoring your pretty walls!)
    I have NOT been thrifting but now I want me some Santa mugs.
    (I envy you a garage with storage space above it! Hehehe)

    1. I think I miscommunicated my 'above storage' -- it's actually just a high shelf that stores Christmas goods and a bunch of other seasonal items. But still, I'm lucky to have a garage, it doesn't hold a car but it does hold all the 'to make with' or 'to sell' stuff. :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
