More Christmas hand mades

HEY THERE!  I got a little more decorating done this morning.  I took out all of our hand-carved Santas and figures that we have made through the past 30 + yrs. and put them on the mantle in the kitchen dining area.  I just love them so much!  There are moon Santas, Intarsia Santas, Santa's made to cling to a door way or shelf, Raggedy Ann and old gentleman, etc. etc!  Hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do!  We create new ones all the time.  Our Moon Santa is very popular and we make some to sell every year.  It is our own original pattern.  Also, the fisherman is one we made up.  I adore him because Bill and his father were fisherman and also our grandchildren love to fish.  He makes a nice gift but is a special order.  There are also a couple of gnomes in there, too.  Just for fun!

Oh, I love that moon dressed up in a Santa suit and that Santa laying down is cute too...looks like you're just about done! I'm just stringing the lights on the tree and then crochet a little and maybe tomorrow I'll decorate it with the ornaments. I'm not in a hurry. I like the way it looks with just the white lights right now, so I'll enjoy it like that for a while ;-)

Have a great day!

Oh Kerrie...
Things are looking so festive over there. Wish I could pop by. I love the Santa collection. I really love the moon one also, but the one hanging off the mantel on the left is my favorite. He looks so happy I think.

What beautiful work you and Bill do together. You are definitely a great team.

Give Bill my love and a hug. Hugs to you too sweetie. Please stop by and ready my post today. You will love it. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
