"Barnyard Santas", by Michele O'Neil
These are REAL roosters (taxidermist-supplied)! I didn't realize they were "real" (just thought that they were gorgeous - and since I collect both Santas and Roosters - this was quite a "find")... until just before they got here - when I asked Michele where on earth she found such realistic, life-like Roosters! So far, I have seen no "chicken ghosts" wandering the house... but I'll keep my eyes peeled (hopefully not pecked)! According to "Extraordinary Chickens", these are "Light Brahma" and "Plymouth Rock" roosters.
"Baxter on Goose" and "Dexter on Bear", by Jeanette Priddy
Baxter and Dexter love to ride the animals! 22-inch Baxter is dressed in burgundy velvet, trimmed with fox fur. 23-inch Dexter is dressed in dark red velvet, trimmed with gold braid and golden rabbit fur. The goose and bear are covered with rabbit fur.
Primitive Santas by Linda Rene
Linda makes unique, one-of-a-kind Santas using tattered cutter quilts, vintage linens, old buttons and lace. Her dolls are self-designed and hand-made, with hand-embroidered faces made from aged muslin, and angora wool hair/beards. These are some of the most wonderful primitives I've seen - they're totally huggable.
"Victorian Father Christmas", by Jill Salinas
Victorian Father Christmas stands approximately 24 inches tall. He has fully sculpted head and hands (polymer clay) and a soft-sculpted body. Father Christmas is lavishly dressed in a velvet crazy quilt robe trimmed in mink and silver bells. On his back, he hauls a woodsy basket of Christmas toys and greens.

Christmas Ornaments by Kim Thomas
These one-of-a-kind Santa ornaments were meticulously hand-sculpted from polymer clay. Each is signed, numbered and dated. The Santas are about 12 inches long, including the silk cream hanging cords. Beards and brows are made from hand washed Leicester-Lincoln fleece. Eyes are hand sculpted from clay and painted many shades of blue. They are sealed with a varnish and as a finishing touch a twinkle is added to give Santa that extra sparkle.
"The Gift-Giver", by Barbara E. VanNoy
Inspired by an antique postcard, this Father Christmas is dressed in a flowing burgundy velvet coat trimmed in sable fur. The gown he is wearing is silk brocade trimmed with gold. Santa carries an armload of gifts, with handmade toys and an antique children's book. The puppet he is holding in his right hand really works. This art doll is 23" tall and plays "Adeste Fideis."
"Coca-Cola Santa", by Barbara E. VanNoy
This Santa was commissioned and created in 2003!

Annette's Santa creations are dressed in absolutely gorgeous, fully lined fur robes. These Santas are hand made in Walkerton, Ontario, by recycling genuine fur coats, real leathers and fine woolens. The Santas have porcelain faces and hands, pure mohair beards, and are made with the finest accent materials. You have to see these to believe them - they far surpass any porcelain Santas that I have ever seen.
