Santa seems content to sit here, taking it all in.
I found this old wooden box with the green handle that luckily goes well with Santas outfit!
 
An OLD flashlight works well as a vase for holiday berries.
An old window hanging on my front porch needed a little something, so this old brass horn did the trick.
I love this little wheel which can be changed easily to go with any holiday or season.

With work, work, and more work, I've had little time to get my own home ready for the holidays! I'm running out of time, so I'm going to have to kick it into high gear! Here are a few things to get me going!
