Vintage Blue Santa Board

This Santa has been a part of our Christmas decor for over 20 years now. It was one of the early decorative painting projects that I painted from a design by Pipka Ulvilden (I think).  As a member of Illinois Prairie Painters and the Society of Decorative Painters I had the opportunity to take many classes and meet artists from around the world.  This was one of my favorite classes.  It stands almost 3 feet tall and I love his blue coat.  The memories of when he was painted, and having him as part of our Christmas decor each year, warms my heart.

Do you have a favorite Christmas project that has become a treasured part of the decorating traditions at your house?

Remember, if Christmas isn't found in your heart, you won't find it under a tree.  Charlotte Carpenter
