My Christmas 'Inheritance'...Pictures
This is bittersweet but I had to share. My MIL passed away last week. About 15 years ago she either bought at a craft show or a friend made for her, a quilted Santa. The material is made from a very old quilt. I BEGGED her to give it to me. lol. But she refused. I told her one day I was going to steal it from her when she wasn't looking. :) We both love old quilts.
Before we started clearing out her house yesterday I announced to everyone that "if you find a quilted Santa, it's MINE." They all laughed. High in the closet and wrapped in paper my dh found the Santa!
It's a lot bigger than in the picture, and stuffed very tightly. Perfect condition!
I'm leaving him out all year. He's just too precious to hide in the closet. :)
Below is another item I found. I'd never seen it before and no one else wanted it. This is also made from a very old quilt and hangs on the wall. It has old buttons on it. I may leave it out also.
It's the width of a hanger which I think is on the inside but it hangs from a ribbon.
