A Santa I Painted And Elf Turns Peeping Tom

I have 500 things to show you.
Okay- I lied- I might have 100 things to show you
but I am running out of time here, folks.
So-
Today will be short and sweet 
because I am off and running for the day.
I have this little Santa crock that I painted back 
in the 1980's.
It sits in our first floor powder room.
I copied the idea from somewhere I am sure.
The chair is one my kids sat on when they were little.
As you can see,
the chair and the crock got a bit banged up
over the years.

Now as I was sitting having my coffee 
and minding my own business-
the Elf on the Shelf jumped down
from the tree.
I followed him blindly like 
any other dumb blond
would do.
Where is he headed?
 OH MY GOODNESS!
Say it isn't so!
Why did I get the NAUGHTY elf?
Can you believe this?
He's a shower peeper!
MyHero is NOT gonna be happy about 
THESE PICTURES!
No sirree bob!
That elf is gonna be in BIG trouble now!
You should have seen the one he 
WANTED TO POST"!!!
X-Rated!
Seriously!

Elfie better hide REALLY good 
when MyHero gets home from work...
and that's all I'm gonna say about that!

Have a great day.
I am trying to get around to visit
as I can.

LOVe your pot painting and chair. But I sure do look forward to seeing what Elf is up to next. I did upstairs and finally found my Elfie, so far he's being good!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

LOL! I just knew your Hero was going to get the brunt of this, Diana! : ) Love the Santa you painted. I wish I had that kind of talent. My Santa would be a stick figure with a beard.

Susie said...

Diana, I don't know who's leading who , in the shower peeping. LOL Good thing Hero couldn't chase you at that time. Once I gave a friend a card with a twisted looking santa on it...it said "this is santa's perverted cousin Ralph. He sees you when you are showering" I think of this everytime I see a Santa that just doesn't look right. Can't help myself. Hope you have a fun safe day. Boy it's cold here today. I need to see the sunshine. xoxo,Susie

White Lace and Promises said...

I love the Over-the-years chair. The pot, you painted? Wow! You have hidden that talent! So impressed.

Thank you for dropping by. So thankful that Jesus is our light and the journey often gets dark and we can only see one step in front of us.

Have a beautiful Christmas! Let the elf have a little fun:)

-gigggles- Oh oh! Elf is in trouble now!!!!

Run Elf, run!!!!!!

Linda said...

WOW! You are a woman of many talents and activities! The elf is darling :-) I am certain that your Hero is going to be sooooo happy when that elf goes back into hiding after Christmas....he does? doesn't he?
Have a great day!

Kim M said...

Thanks for the morning laugh, Diana! I love your elf, your Santa crock and your sense of humor! :)

Dang it. I'm headed for the shower now, and you've got me all freaked out over that Elf dude.

Donna said...

It's a good thing you have a frosted glass shower door, Diana! Otherwise I think you might be in a bit of trouble:)
Your crock is cute!

Patty Patterson said...

That's pretty hilarious! I actually laughed. And our elf is pretty good, most of the time. He leaves us surprises and he stole the potty chair and left surprises in it's place. Because - the girls are big enough to use the big potty now. I'm so thankful he took that little one. No more dumping!

Dewena Callis said...

Now, Diana, how to you expect any of us to be commenting on your pretty blue Santa when the shower elf is distracting us--it's not your hero we're thinking of, of course, just the elf!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

OMG Diana...too funny!! Now where do you think your Elf learned all his mischievousness from...just sayin;)
LOVE the painted Santa crock and that sweet little chair!

Celestina Marie said...

Oh my gosh, this is too funny and I feel I may here you yelling for help all the way down here!! Could it be you are a naughty influence on little Elf??
Love your painted Santa. He looks like many designs I have done over the years. Pat Olsen style Beautifully painted!

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Blessed Serendipity said...

Red Rose Alley said...

Hahaha, I love that little Elf On The Shelf. I just saw him today when I was out shopping, but didn't want to spend that much, even though it was 20% off. I must get him before Christmas though hehehe. I like that you did some painting back in the 80's. I also painted a couple things myself, but gave them away.....why did I do that? The stool is so cute, Diana.

Love,
~Sheri

Merry Christmas Diana. Karen has kept me updated on your precious grandson. What a miracle that God used a blog friend to help your family get him the help he needed. Praise the Lord.
Your home is looking so pretty. I see that you and Sweet Cheeks have had birthdays. God bless you all during the holidays.

Vee said...

You might want to stay out late shopping yourself! =D

camp and cottage living said...

Little Elfie may find himself in the garbage can if he doesn't shape up!
Of course I got a feeling he wasn't able to climb atop that shower stall by himself, Diana...

A very unique and interesting presentation. I am sure the little elf knows how to handle heroes. Best wishes to you and family for a glorious holiday.

Candy S said...

I love Elfie - how funny he (you) is. Your crock Santa is still looking pretty good after all of these years. I really like blue in holiday pictures. It is different, but very attractive.

Pam Kessler said...

Oh, my. He sure gets into some trouble around your house.

Maureen Wyatt said...

He's a dirty, little elf for sure! The one on top of the shower, I mean.
You are a very talented painter!
