I was very happy to find several vintage Santa postcards. First, with the classic look of Santa and a child, it is perfect. I cleaned it up, increased the dpi to 300, and sized it 7″ x 5″.
I’m a big planner and I like to make lists. There is a satisfaction in checking off completed tasks. Do you make lists? A big list this time of year is my gift list for Christmas. Family, friends, and people who make my life better are on the list. When I was working, I’d read about people giving a gift to the mail carrier. It seemed odd as I had no idea who delivered my mail. I was at work.
Recently I bought a new holiday planter with red poinsettia and vines in a small gold tub. I added a chocolate Santa and gold elements to give it height and placed it on my green Depression glass cake stand. This is the inspiration for my table.
