I hope you weren't expecting anything too grandiose from my post title. I picked up this wooden folk-type piece at a second-hand shop for one reason only: see second photo. I thought there must be something I could do with it.
Well, at this time of year, what else could I do? It's the first decoration to be set out at my house. Mainly because I'm not going to put it away then pull it back out in a week or two (I don't put holiday decorations out early-- don't want to dust them more than I have to!).
