 I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has read, followed, and purchased from my blog in 2010. I appreciate your efforts so very much! Merry Christmas to you all....

 I have had some requests to post my offerings from The Best We Can Do websale here, so here they are:    (click on images to enlarge)

                                       Spirit in Helping
Santa measures 9.75" tall so this piece is larger in height and scale than my usual work, all antique and vintage fabrics, antique and handmade accessories, an actual German toy cart circa 1900   sold for $395......Thank You, J.

Spirit in Giving
10.25" tall overall , so also a little larger than usual, Santa is dressed in felt and cotton, mohair beard, dollhouse and candy container are handmade, candy container has removable head and note dollhouse address, authentic German platform horse circa 1900

Spirit  in Tradition
An old real picture postcard was the inspiration. The photographer's prop sleigh an backdrop are all hand painted and mounted on a single base, so as to be free standing. Santa and the little girl are also free standing. A sepia tint postcard of this scene is included. 8" x 7.25"
Sold for $185... Thank You, T.


  1. Congratulations, Allen, wonderful work. You mentioned to note the address on the doll house but didn't give a close-up of it. What does it say?
