I bought these beautiful hand-painted, hand-carved German Santas
from the estate of a dear friend.
Some of them are signed by the artist.
I don't know the value or these, but they are invaluable to me.
I fell in love with this metal
Santa selling snowcones.
Isn't he adorable!!!
Although this isn't a Christmas decoration, I wanted to share this find with you, too.
This also was in the estate sale. I have in hanging on my foyer wall.
I love the details and will think of my sweet friend
every time I pass by this beautiful tapestry.
A close up shows the beautiful parrot. Other animals
peeking out are a squirrel, a rabbit, a leopard, other smaller birds
and some fancy-dressed ladies and gentlemen playing musical instruments.
Now who could resist this Santa on his way with a bundle
of Christmas toys on his back? Not me!
He is a heavy, cast-iron door stop.
Now, tell me, "How cute is that?"
