We stopped by the antique shop in town one day…we didn’t have too much time to explore but as we walked quickly through I happened to spy a couple of things I
needed wanted should not have bought for $2.
It just added to my project/someday list.
Who can resist an old carving that just needs a little help…and the jingling bells were driving Far Guy nuts just in the store. (Yes it might be me and the bells that drive him over the edge.)
The Santa had a strange look.
Before: Santa stares…kinda spooky. He needed to be rescued.
After…I sanded him a bit, thinned down some brown paint and brushed some on and took most of it off, re painted his wonky eyes…put some snow on his hat and cuffs and a little glitter glue on his tree…and then I sealed it.
He looks good on the wreath outside the door. Maybe I will add some lights and maybe not.
The bells ended up outside also…that was the extent of my Christmas decorating this week.
