Thrifted Santa Planter and Vintage Christmas Table Runner

I found this cute Santa planter last January at Salvation Army for 80¢ and never suspected he'd be the centerpiece for my kitchen table this year! Of course that decision was easy with this fun colorful vintage table runner:@) I filled his sack with a standard little 12" tree from Michaels, initially I thought I might add more ornaments but decided to keep it simple. Let's take a closer look with a short poem...

Christmas comes but once a year,

so dance around the tree you hear,

 visit friends and spread some cheer,

 even those not so near,

 and sing it loud for all to hear-

no fires tonight... it's Santa's biggest fear:@)

Oh yea, just being silly-  
Have a Happy Day Everyone!!!
