santos love

Last week was my birthday and my sweet friends got me a santos.
Santos 1
They know I’ve been wanting one for awhile and it was such a sweet gesture on their part.
Santos 2
i . love . her .
Santos 3
I created a quick, little vignette so I could share her with you here.
Santos 4
I added some other accents I thought would compliment her well.
Santos 5
Not sure where she will end up, but I have a feeling she might move a round a bit.
Santos 6
Can’t wait to include her in my Christmas decor.
Happy Decorating!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday my birthday was Tuesday this week
    Anyway I love santos and I made me one once out of an old country wood doll, then I bought a tall metal santos and thinking of painting her white
    I have a studio in lower level of my house and my santos sets out all the time looking over my other treasures
    So glad your friend made you happy

    Happy Birthday Mary Jo! She is a real beauty. I have been toying with the idea of buying one as well. Almost bought one last Spring and didn’t. Wished I had every since. Love the vignette you created! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
