I love this first santa, it reminds me of being a young girl and learning to sew by making stuffed dolls and animals for presents for my brothers and sisters. I have 11 brothers and sisters and so ofcourse we drew names for Christmas. One of the rules was that most of the present had to be handmade. I loved that rule and couldn't wait to create something special for the person I drew. I can't promise that they always liked it though! It was special to me and to this day my extended family almost always gets a little handmade something. This little elf sits in a long cotton stocking that I made a few years ago. Look at that sweet face!
O.k. I am drawn to these 'scary' santas and so one year I came across someones collection that they were getting rid of at a garage sale, well I decided to group them all together for impact and impact I got! I came around the corner one morning and scared myself silly! ( it reminded me of a vintage Twilight Zone episode!) They were put away that day and now I scatter a few here and there! I'm such a scaredy-cat!
This plastic deer is just too adorable for words... love the pink on 'her' and check out her silver eyes!
