Some cute hair clips for the holidays - Franni makes and sells these in her Artfire shop - do stop over and see what else she has there. . . you'll be glad you did . . .
More darling hair clips . . .
And a machine embroidered picture frame - just the thing for Ben's santa photo . . . such a fun box to open - it just went on and on - I'm lucky to have a friend like Franni.
And from my good friend Pam, a wonderful suprise. I was not even expecting this box, but when I saw the return address I was really excited.
This is a santa that Pam's mom made. Pam and her mother took a doll making class together and Pam's mom started this Santa doll. She passed away before she could finish it and the teacher finished it up. Santa has lived at Pam's house for 6 years now and she decided that he wanted to live here with my other Santas. So she surprised me with Santa.
Santa has stripey socks and "leather" shoes and mittens, checked pants and a lined velvet coat with hat and pack to match. His hat jingles with a bell and he is watching to see if you were naughty or nice. Pam was definitely nice, to share Santa with me. He will always be a very special treasure.
