A New Favorite Thrifty Christmas Thing!

Last week I stopped in a thrift store and could not resist this cute Santa!
Santa hugging a couple of polar bears just makes me smile!   
For $3 I brought him home
I think I'll put hime here on top of the desk with my JOY plate!
Looks good but what about adding
My IKEA lantern with a red candle! 
Now I love it!  
I'm sure I'll 'tweak' it as I continue decorating but for now 
I really love my new thrifty Santa!

Sharing the Joy at these parties 
Thrifty Things Friday (yes I know i'm late)
