Sharing Red and what is Santa's other Job?

Time for a little sharing of Christmas Red with Sue at Its a Very Cherry World for Wednesday is Rednesday. (Better late than never) Also, I have a question today. Do you ever wonder what Santa does after Christmas? But first, let's get ready for Christmas.

The candles are ready.....

The lights are strung.........

The stockings are hung, with help from a few little elves.......

There are tins filled with cookies.....

And other tasty treats........

Flowers (would you believe fake and a Goodwill find for $1.99?) are ready to greet my guests.....

Here are some of the wreathes I have been making from bits and pieces of vintage floral picks, ornaments and old garland. I love this red and silver wreath.

Would you believe that I rescued this lovely aluminum flower with red pine cone center from the trash?

Red and white vintage flower picks join Santa and his sleigh for this wreath.

A little bit of this and that makes up this wreath. These were all found (from free boxes and trash) little treasures.

Now for a little music. Of course you have to have Gene Autry singing "Here Comes Santa Clause"..........

But you know me........that just isn't enough for Christmas. Remember, I was wondering what Santa does after Christmas.

Nothing can beat Christmas with the Colonel....... yes Colonel Sanders!!

This 1969 Christmas music was brought to you by Kentucky Fried Chicken..... Nothing could say Christmas more than the Colonel. Afterall, switch his white suit to red and add a beard......maybe it is Santa for the off season. I'll let you decide. Merry Christmas to one and all.

Got it at Goodwill
