Caption This: Santa in the House

by hookedonhouses on December 8, 2009

I Spy Santa-blue bedroom

When Santa returned home after Christmas, he was disheartened to see that Mrs. Claus had been busy “decorating” again.

How would you caption this photo?

He sees when you’ve been decorating in your sleep. He knows when your awake. He knows when you’ve been bad or good, so be good for decorating sake!

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Oh My Gosh that is so funny.,. I’m at work trying not to laugh out loud.. I think I hurt something… LOL LOL LOL

Richella at Imparting Grace December 8, 2009 at 9:11 am

That is so funny. “Santa regrets that he’d said ‘yes’ when Mrs. Claus asked if she could freshen up their bedroom while he was out of town.”

Oh, goodness. Thank you for this smile-bringer. Your blog is continually a source of delight!

What’s really sad is that the person who created this blue mess really thinks it’s spectacular. She broke every rule in the decorating handbook, too, poor thing! From blocking a window with a bed to fake flowers to Creepy Santa who looks like Burger King’s cousin…yikes!!! I bet if you moved around the furniture and took at least half of the crap out of the room, it would look really nice…she has the right idea, but just way too much of it.

I LOVE that headboard! And the clock… so shabby chic! The decor can certainly go though, and Santa is plain creepy in that pic.

“Santa returned home from his midnight run to find that the Easter Bunny had thrown up all over his bed. Unable to find Mrs. Claus, and too exhausted to do the laundry himself, he collapsed into his chair, where he slept all that day.”

But, I love the quirkiness of this set-up. I mean come on, is it for real? Like someone actually thinks THIS is good decorating?

Trish@TheOldPostRoad December 8, 2009 at 10:38 am

Finally! After all these years we FINALLY find out what Santa gives you if you POUT or CRY or are NAUGHTY. (-You get a dusty, frilly, fuzzy, cacophany of a room as punishment for your misgivings!)

Carol M December 8, 2009 at 1:42 pm

Santa could only watch helplessly as Mrs. Claus disappeared through the middle of the bed, swallowed by the Creature from the Blue Lace Lagoon.

Claire December 8, 2009 at 1:44 pm

Ok, I have dust mite allergies and just looking at this picture is making me itch in sympathy for Santa, but I’ll give it a go:

“Santa wonders what he did wrong to have his wife try to hide his bed from him.”

And JenR, LOL!

Carmen December 8, 2009 at 2:23 pm

Truly The Nightmare Before Christmas!!This room looks like some sort of holding place for someone’s scrap lace pieces!! With Santa being an afterthought over on the side!! For Heaven’s Sake…..

This is what happens when you don’t get out much…you bring the sustainable living indoors.
Kind of a fantasy life. This is the room of a very elderly woman for sure.
Santa is looking for his cookies and milk…wait where are his hands oh no…this is really bad. He’s checking his text messages before wifie get a hold of his cell phone.
Could his list be longer than Tiger Woods! Oh my what a year this has been!

Mom in High Heels December 8, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Santa shook his head sadly and KNEW he’d have to put this homeowner on the naughty list.

That room is horrible!!!!

“The neighbors realized they had really pissed off Martha Stewart when they saw their re-decorated bedroom, after it was pronounced ‘A Good Thing’.”
Or
“At last! A purpose for Beth’s crinoline collection was at hand!”

Santa was sorely disappointed to see that Mrs. Claus used the Quinceanera dress made for Anita as a bedspread.

I had to come back and comment on this some more. I just can’t help myself.

Jess, I think another name for using a dress as curtains should be “pulling a reverse Scarlett O’Hara.”

Also, Julia, when this showed up in my blog reader, I thought you had lost your mind. I’m glad to see not only your mind is intact, but so is your sense of humor!

Andrea December 9, 2009 at 8:09 am

Santa was chagrined when he realized it had been 22 years since Jennifer had requested, “a frilly pillow for my bed.”

melissa December 9, 2009 at 10:12 am

I don’t have anything clever or funny about the picture but I do really love the headboard!

This photo really makes Santa look very, very creepy. I once took MLS photos of a house with a six foot Santa in the dining room (it was July already!#@*???) along with other Christmas decor. And an undressed Barbie that looked like she was being swallowed alive by a ceramic crocodile? I had a difficult time trying to get photos around all the stuff.
