(unfortunately this year...EAL is not having a 2013 Holiday Directory)



Santa is completely handmade .. in my overloaded Connecticut Christmas Workshop... each of my Santas have their own Happy... "Kim's Klaus" appearance... Creating out of the box & UN-ordinary items defines my work & keeps me inspired~

I wanted this weary & worn...Old Soul to have a more antique...been around for a hundred years...feel to him...so he has an aged wrinkly face ...an all-knowing face... that has seen a thing ...or two...that has been thoughtfullyhandmade out of clay with hand painted facial features -giving this legendary man his one of a kind expression of profound happiness ...

This burly old-Timer is wearing a Coat,Pants & Hooded Hat made from a fabulous antique..hand-stitched ....Crazy Quilt....The quilt was a cutter quilt & ...not perfect...aged & frayed fabric give him a wonderfully time-worn appearance.....it is trimmed in...vintage wool.....an old red string sash belt & vintage mis-matched buttons close his coat...he has handmade antique crazy quilt mittens & handmade clay boots...painted brown ,aged & Trimmed in wool... His wild, unruly-untamed-able Curly beard is genuine lambs wool~
This is a plump...hefty fellow... with a generous behind... so that he sits nicely about 11 inches tall from his behind ...to the very tip of his hat...he is about 9-10 inches wide..... & his legs hang down...from his thigh to his boot about 7 inches....He was made to sit...but if he could be stretched out he would be about 22 inches long...

... Santa holds a handmade antique Crazy quilt Stocking..with a tiny Victorian tinsel ornament hanging from the side...His antique quilt sack rests by his side &. ..a genuine antique jingle bell strap is slung across him...there are 10 steel bells on very worn leather..I placed a tag that reads "Sleigh Bells Ring" upon the strap...Tied to Santa's Belt is a handmade hang tag made from a copy of a great poem from my antique newspapers....it is from Harper's Weekly in the 1800's .... & happens to be about an old coat....

I have this Santa on one of my old picnic baskets & an old Doll Chair...(Not Included)...he is wired for gentle movement....He has a slouchy...Comfy old look about him & will be happy & very Merry just about anywhere...

He is signed & dated on the back of one of his boots & he will come with a signed & dated handmade hang tag.
