Santa Shelf lined with recycled gift wrap paper
Hey Y'all! Yes, I'm still amongst the land
of the living - just been super busy.
Y'all know how it is - Christmas time can be
stressful, even when you try NOT to be stressed.
So, I picked up this really nice
small hutch at the G.W. for $10.
It has hooks on the back so it was
probably hung on someone's wall.
Right now it's setting on top of an old
table that I've got to make a runner for
This hutch is all white, and I've been scratching
my head thinking of how I want to
repaint, and what colors to use.
Still undecided. I knew I wanted to display
my antique Winky Eyed Santa Cups,
but there is too much white going on,
and I just don't have time to sew right now...
So I rummaged through my paper pile
and found some un-used gift wrapping paper
from last year.
I call this "Wrapping Paper for Dummies", and
I LOVE IT! No messy cuts!
I think it turned out perfect!
The top row, except the Santa with the hat,
are from Japan. They are old and
some of the red is rubbed off but
I love them none the less!
The bottom row holds a set of candle holders I've
had since I've been married, and I
new green bowl I found at a thrift store.
The Santa to the left is not marked Japan
but is very similar to those on the top row.
The Santa to the right, with the candy cane
handle was also thrifted and is dated 1982.
And lastly, I topped the hutch with
my huge Santa portrait I bought several
years ago at Kirklands.
Happy Monday Y'all!
