Give old and creepy Santa decorations new life {and make them even creepier!} This was a nutty team effort by me and Mr. D. We took the head off of a dead animatronic Santa and attached it to an old award plaque acquired at an estate sale {Jim hit his sales quota and got a trip to Acapulco in 1082, jay Jim!} Viola! Faux Taxidermy Mounted Santa Head.

Year of the Monkey

HAPPY YEAR OF THE MONKEY!

“The monkey is known for being very intelligent and clever,” explains Laura Lau, author of The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, calling it “one of the most innovative personalities within the zodiac.” These are common personality traits of people born under this sign, but they’re also thematic to the Year of the Monkey overall. As the monkey imbues the year with its quick wit, curiosity, and, as Lau stresses, its resourcefulness, it becomes a “year of reinvention in a lot of ways…a very energetic year and an auspicious one.” ~Refinery29
