- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

This Santa has been in our family for over 60 years. I'm not quite sure where he came from, but I grew up with this Santa, and now my boys have enjoyed him in their growing years. He is showing some wear & tear here & there...but overall looks pretty good. I have the original plain cardboard box he came in, he folds in half, and there "used" to be a stand cardboard piece which kept him upright, so now he is propped up , until I can figure out how to fix him.
