December OMG success!

Linking up with Patty’s OMG for December...actually a little early (I beat the deadline for once!)...her link will be open on December 26.
Mr. Woodland Santa now takes his long overdue place by our Christmas tree...after 22 years, he is finally dressed...
From his cotton shirt...and leather vest...


He needs to stay warm during our long and cold Wisconsin winters, so the next layer is a knitted scarf (using yarn leftover from my own knitted scarf)...

A matching leather cap tops off his head...

As he trudges through our woods collecting Christmas greens in his basket, all the bells on his boots, hat and around his waist give out a constant jingle letting us know where he is....




He now stands guard by our tree which is trimmed with my Mom’s Christmas ornaments...many that we gave her over the years as we always exchanged a special one every year with each other. Though both Mom and Dad are gone, I feel their presence so strongly...


From Taylorsoutback, I send each of you wishes for a Joyous Christmas and everything that is good and kind in 2019.
Pat

  1. I meant to ask you how Santa was coming along. I should have known you would have finished him in time. He looks great and I am so glad he gets to sit amongst all your Christmas decorations after so long. Merry Christmas.

  5. That is the coolest Santa ever! You did an amazing job dressing him, and I'll bet he is grateful, after all those years scantily clad. :)
    That is tender that you have the ornaments from your parents on your tree.
    Merry Christmas to you!
