I actually LOVE this idea, Karla! I believe I saw a Mr. and Mrs. "Claus'd-up" photo in your beautiful Christmas shop during "A Snowbird's Song!" What a fun way to get creative and adapt an everyday vintage photo for the holidays. I'm so sorry the special curved glass shattered on one of them, though. :( I know that was very disappointing. Thanks for sharing these beautiful altered photos with us!


Oh Karla I may have to borrow

this idea from you .. they are darling , full of Christmas cheer

Hugs wendy

Tammy Pegher

What an awesome idea!! You are so talented and creative:)


These are very cool, Karla! I might have to try that with the relatives!

Karla Nathan

Thank you, Tammy! I had a blast with these, and went thru all of my old photos searching for old guys to Santa-up.

Karla Nathan

Have fun with it, Wendy, I sure did!

Karla Nathan

Yes, there were a few around, Linda. I was pretty down about the shattered dome glass. That old, wavy glass gave it such character.

I am in love with this!!!

I got the old photo at a Topeka antique store, Gail. What are the odds they might be related to you?
