Most of you know I am not a lover of the vintage elf. They kind of give me the creeps.
But mid-way through December, my daughter decides she wants to do "The Elf on the Shelf" project. And proceeds to grab one of the vintage elves out of my Etsy inventory.
His name is now "Bob". And he has traveled the last couple of weeks with his trusty pal "Blitzen" throughout our vintage home.
Ok, so they never made it out of the family room, but you get the picture.
This vintage elf has started to grow on me. Maybe it's his surroundings, or his cute little pal, but I don't find him nearly as creepy anymore.
In fact, I'm thinking Bob and Blitzen may play a prominent role in the year to come. I have many projects in mind for them. A starring role in my Etsy shop. Perhaps even a book deal!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and happy holiday season, from all of us here at Vintage Junk in My Trunk. And Bob.
