Yesterday I posted photos of snowmen hooked pieces and dolls I made over the years.  Today I'll scroll thru my photos of Santa's sold and perhaps some which are still here.  Of course my hooked antique adaptation of Santa and Deer is on my harvest table right now but here is a better photo than at an angle on the table.
Below is a huge standing Santa which had.....uh, cement feet, lol.  That was to allow the Santa to stand alone.  Naturally he was stuffed and had dowels for stability.  Made a few and all sold.
Lisanne Miller purchased this white Santa with candy cane which she mentioned recently on FB...thanks Lisanne.  She has a one-of-a-kind as this was the only one I made like that.
Below is a very washed out photo of a primitive Santa which sold years ago.
Americana Santa was popular when I did shows also so made a few of those. 
This big Santa below had a faux fur trim and think I only made two of these, both sold.  Yikes, the date on most of these photos is 2001.
A Santa in a stocking sold well in my booth too.
Another option for the Santa shopper.  These may have been the only two I made as I'd get bored.
Below are painted folk art Santa's which never sold.  They are the only two I made and think they are cute and don't understand why they didn't appeal to anyone.

The Santa on the base with primitive tree I still have; he is on my mantle now but this photo was taken another year at Christmas time.  I kinda like him and will keep him around.
St. Nick below I believe is still in a Christmas tote from the craft years.  
And believe this primitive Santa with a quilt coat might be in the same container.
The Santa below is in my wool room on a shelf, standing beside a feather tree I made from real goose feathers a few years ago.  The Santa has a femo sculpted face, real fur and velvet coat.
Am sure that many more santas were made and sold but didn't capture photos of everything I did.

Hope you have a great evening and thanks for taking the time to visit.



  1. You must have had a lot of time on your hands to be able to create so many Santas and dolls and everything else. There are so many. You are a very creative lady. My very favorite one is St Nick with the feather tree standing beside the little house with rustic tin roof.

  2. I agree with Julia. That Santa with the feather tree is wonderful, but I also love the patriotic one.
    That Santa/reindeer rug has been on my bucket list for years!
