It takes a lot of work to get all this 'stuff' out! And put it away! This is my buffet years ago, I've collected white and silver santas since this picture, and the houses go on the fireplace now.
I have an extensive collection of cast iron santa doorstops, too. I waited years to have a house with a staircase to display them on.
Then last year for Granddaughter number 4, I used an old wool sweater. I sent it through a hot wash and
dry several times to 'felt' it, cut the pattern and before I lined it I did some beadwork where the original white of the nordic design was.
A red ribbon, some buttons, and a knitted top out of funky fur yarn, and she also has her own individual stocking.
I made stockings for Granddaughters 2 and 3 also, I just can't find the pics right now. That will be another post if I can find them.
