Well, it is that time of year again.  Running around getting ready for the holidays, shopping, standing in long lines, dealing with lots of folks and chilly weather.  And to top it off, it is the start of cold and flu season.

Santa Door Greeter made from a Recycled Rake

Recently, at a flea market, I ran across a whole bunch of old metal rake heads without the handles. After staring at them a bit, I bought the batch of them and put them aside for inspiration. And then suddenly, I saw Santa whiskers and it was all downhill from there!  Soon, a Santa Rake Greeter came to be.  Want to know how?
