Vintage Christmas Ornament No. 2

A letter.. probably from someone a way away..
 Will they be making the trip home for the holiday?

The home fires will be burning, all lamps lit,
After all.... it's Christmas Eve.

Gathering Santa, Getting Ready

He's been gettin' ready,
Been ringing his bell,
But he took time out...
To pose for this picture

Oooo...takes his posing very seriously indeed.
((made from 3/4" pine, about 12" tall, on a wood base, painted with acrylic paint; twigs & tiny pine cones are real, as is bell))

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town !

This is the very first wooden piece I painted...
back more than 20 years ago. Although the camera didn't pick it up, as an update a couple of years ago, I added German glitter glass to his hat.

Had been a canvas and board painter for twice that number of years, but decided to try wood. Once I did, there was no going back!

So You Better Watch Out... Better Not Pout!
