Last year as we were packing up Christmas and purging things for the upcoming move this stuffed Santa pillow was in the purge pile. PH came in the house and said, "Santa stays." Now, this Santa was always disrespected around here. He was unpacked each year and propped in a corner and forgotten. He's kind of big, too. Nobody even remembered he was there till it was time to pack Christmas away and then he wasn't even given a box. He was just tossed in with whatever. Little did I know he was an integral part of PH's decor. So. To keep both of us happy I unstuffed him, cleaned him up and then carefully basted him front and back (so they lined up) with a green pinstripe ticking looking fabric.
