Even..........

scary little skeleton babies like to wait for Santa!
Well, in my world they do!

I've been out junk shopping a few times recently and on one trip found this old first aid tin.....when I opened it I realised it would make a great alternative to a configuration box! I also bought an old green metal funnel, a Santa head Christmas ornament and a heart with bells (which I didn't end up using)
From this "stuff"plus some other "stuff" I already had lying around came this.......
..my "found" version of a configuration box!

 Added the Santa head to the inside of the tin lid.....it fitted like it was made for it!

 Painted a small porcelain doll to look skeleton-y.......added a Santa hat.....aka a metal piping nozzle.... and here she sits waiting for Santa

Three plastic cherubs got a paint job..................

 ........a metal moose wishes everyone.......
.....MERRY CHRISTMAS....
..with bells on his antlers

 The funnel became a Christmas tree with rusty star and a screw head..................

 ......a partridge in a pear tree???....a small bird cookie cutter....

 Still waiting and wishing....................

 I saw that the challenge on SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW is to show something with depth.....I hope this might count!

As my husband said when I sent him a pic of this .....a weirdo Merry Christmas to you too!

It definitely fits the challenge Sue, I love how that Santa fits perfectly into the slot and those cherubs/angels fit perfectly on top. I love the alternative Christmas tree, which suits perfectly your alternative configuration box, a neat idea in itself. Love your rusty pieces too. A merry weirdo Christmas to you too. Thanks so much for joining in The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge Sue, great to have you along. Tracy x

This is such a unique piece of art . . . a little crazy and a lot of imaginative artistry. Each piece in this tin is so well thought out and executed. Love it! Thanks for joining the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show.
