Vintage Christmas

I started with a picnic basket that was not in very good condition. My husband fixed the lid where it wouldn't shut and would stay up. Inside is a well worn quilt, a santa from the 1950s and a snowman made from chenille. The book is "The Night Before Christmas" from the 1950s. On the lid is a new piece of pine greenry with vintage ornaments hanging on it.

Keep up the good work.
