Santa, to me... is all about the visions of little elves running around in a magical little workshop in the North Pole. The delivery of gifts in this fashion brings out the little girl in me. The clock is tied on with festive ribbons. Take a look at the time....Ho, ho, ho!!
I love this flea market cart of galvanized and red. You dont find them this cute every day!
Santa doesnt wrap his gifts in expensive papers and ribbons. Me thinks hes a little more home spun than that. Digging through newspapers at this time of year produces just the right recycled papers for wrapping Santa gifts for the kids. Tis the season
Thank goodness my kids are old enough now where assembly is no longer required!
Its all in the details. I LOVE the red wheels and handle on this cart!!
The cart will arrive on Christmas morning marked with an E for Elizabeth. I wonder how Master A.J.s will arrive??
The packages are all inside the cart nice and tidy like. The newspaper wrapped gifts are tied up simply with red and black ribbons. Santa likes simple Monday projects too!

I do a whole lot of natural sophistimicated kind of wrapping for the holidays leaving the red, green. white, and black to the man with the white beard and big belly. Here is one of the ways Santa will make his appearance at our house this year. Miss Elizabeth's gifts will be delivered in a flea market cart. Imagine that!


Did you make this?

Sue sweetheart, do you know how bad I want this cart. I’ve already come up with three really cool JMS projects incorporating it if you ever decide to unload it…OK…Christmas is not too far away. Your daughter is so lucky…I’d make a great relative too…brother…uncle?

Great bunch of inspiring ideas!

Nice work and thanks for sharing another fab post!
