    Barnyard Santas, by Michele O'Neil

    "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.

    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.

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.

    Annette Lux

    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.
