This particular Santa had made a prominent appearance in two of my most popular blog posts - the one about my German Smoker Santas and the one about my Christmas Eve Table. In both posts, this poor Santa showed off his little boo-boo for all to see.
I'm so sorry, Santa guy, for making you spend the whole holiday season so mis-shapen and lop-sided. You're still cute, even with the strange mustache. Really. I'm not just saying that!
So, before I packed this poor little guy away for the year, I gave him a little tender loving care. I looked in the box that he usually gets stored in, and sure enough, I found the missing piece of his mustache hiding there. With a little dab of wood glue, he was good as new again! Here are some Before and After shots of our little guy, all messed up and then all fixed up.
And now he's safely packed away for the year. Hopefully he'll be safe and sound and will be good as new next year.
Linking to Between Naps on the Back Porch's Metamorphosis Monday.
On Tuesday I'll be hosting my first-ever Happy Tuesday link party. The idea came to me last week as I was pondering the future of this blog. I thought, why not set aside a special day to spread happiness and cheer, once a week, all year long? Won't you come back and share something that makes you happy? I'd love to have you join us!
