Elf On A....'59 Zenith?


Yes, Elf on Shelf 
is on a radio right now...




We found this little radio at a garage sale last week for $10...




and thought a little re-do would make it a perfect
tube radio to listen to music in our retro-themed Christmas camper,
Summer Holiday,
which we are in the process of renovating.




A little yellow paint,
a bow with a toadstool mushroom,
and a wee little elf complete the radio's makeover.




Just a little paint and hot glue
brought this radio
into a new vintage reality.





There are a few new updates to the
vintage camper, which I'll post soon...





but for now, we're jammin' on the driveway
to three stations with a warm tinny-sound.

What a fun vintage radio and loving that elf! I hide two vintage elves for the grands each Christmas. Cannot wait to see the progress on the trailer, Janice

Andrea,
This little radio looks so vintage.
I think the yellow makes it looks so much better, and the Elf adds a special touch. I just love that little guy.

Andrea ... those radio's are hard to find, so kudos to you. It looks so cute and absolutely perfect for that little vintage camper. Can't wait to see the reveal!

No, it's not spaghetti squash, it's just cooked spaghetti, cooked hamburger, spaghetti sauce, and some tomatoes and cheese on top. Bake for awhile, and very yummy. It's kind of like lasagna. I think I'll try some squash with it the next time. That sounds good.

I am transported back to my childhood when little elves ( now vintage treasures ) were on my mom's mantel at Xmas with putz houses and snow and such :)

magic to me as a child :)

So cute! I love the yellow color and the elf adds the perfect touch for your camper. I just got two vintage radios. One is brown and in great shape, the aqua one is a little rustic. Never thought of painting it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
