Recycled Santas

Most of you know that I own an Antique Mall called The Mulberry Bush here in Clinton, OK and we get visitors from all over the world.
Really?? in a little town without even a Wal-Mart?! Amazing huh? But we've had some folks from The Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Canada... Mostly they are traveling along Route 66 (which runs right through our town and we have a really great Route 66 Museum here).
ANYWAY...back to my story. I had a really neat guy, Charlie, from Arkansas (and a Texas Longhorn to boot!--Bless his heart--I know what it's like to be a Longhorn in a foreign land~~sigh). Oops, I've strayed from my story again. Well, Charlie and his wife stopped by to shop and he bought an old strainer like this one:
The Mulberry Bush
I told him that I thought it was a pretty neat strainer and he said he was going to make a Santa out of it. Wait...What?
Now y'all know how much I love trash-to-treasure projects so I couldn't resist asking him how in the world he was going to make a Santa out of a Strainer?!?
He gave me his card and told me to check out his website. His business is called Recycled Santas and his website is It is just too cool!! Here is what that little strainer is going to become:
Recycled Santas

Now How Cute is That??!!

It was a truly a pleasure meeting Charlie and his wife and I especially loved being able to share his art with y'all. Hope it inspires you like it did me!
Charlie, Recycled Santas
Take Care 'til next time!
