Belated Blooper Before and After - Half Mustachioed Santa

A week or so ago, there was a blog party at Between Naps on the Back Porch where posters would show their blog bloopers from 2010.  At the time, I didn't think I had anything to offer, since I've only been blogging for a couple of months.  But then as I was putting away the Christmas decorations last week, I found that one of my Santa figures had a little boo-boo that I hadn't noticed before.

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!


  1. He looks good as new!!! How lucky are you, that you still had that piece?! Nice job.

  2. My hubby has a smoker like yours too! So cute, I never noticed the mustache:) Now, where do you live? I am assuming in Pa. somewhere. Hope you do get to Longwood one year! XO, Pinky

  3. Well I have to say he does look much happier and symmetrical with both sides of his mustache, bless his heart. I bet you'll never pick him out of his box again without checking to make sure he's got his "face on".

  4. Awww, he looks like he's smiling now. Glad you found his mustache. :)
