Olde World Santas by Me/JP

 I'm off to a late start at re-creating my "Olde World Santas." However, I'm excited about getting creative making more versions of the ones that I designed back in the 90's. I made and sold quite a few of them to family, friends and customers of mine and wonder how many are still being displayed each Christmas season. 


Handpainted faces and genuine lambswool accents are what make them a l'il bit special.


I made lots of different styles with varied fabrics and sizes both short and fat and tall and skinny. Some with sacks of burlap and sacks of gold, many were much more elaborate and all were OOAK designs.

Their bodies are molded of stiffened fabric over poster board cones.

The inside is finished with hand stamped script.

These are a few of my old, 4" versions.

Not so fancy, but still quite cute!

What a busy week this is going to be...

The newest in the line up, dressed in red....I just love his mustache!

Oh, no....I forgot his buttons!

Another handsome fellow.


A line-up of a few more made today...no time for a proper set up, for off to sell them they have to go!

Now, I'm off to work on some of my drop cloth versions for you lovers of white!



You can find these @ The Northrop Antiques Mall in Southport, NC and @ The Red House Specialty Shop in Shallotte, NC or message me to have one shipped to your door!


 Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP

Love the face on the larger one, Janet! The detail with the list of names is a very cute touch.

P.S. I unfollowed, then refollowed so let's see if that solves the problem of your blog not showing up in my dashboard. : )
