Santa’s Little Helper

This sweet gent is Father Christmas. This three piece doll set is #249.

I love old world Santas. And the idea of Santa traveling through the forest on horseback, delivering special gifts to sweet children who dream of him in their sleep.That thought inspired this charming fellow who has a very special helper.

Santa is 16″ tall, while his horse is 6″ tall and 9.5″ from nose to tail.

Woodland Santa and his sweet Companions

This is my newest holiday Santa and I have to tell you I am smitten with him! I love the sweet company he keeps but my favorite thing about him is his color palette. Some special details about this guy: he’s big! Santa measures 19.5″ tall. His deer measure 10.5 inches tall (excluding antlers) and are 9.5 inches wide from nose to tail. I’ve used real deer antler buttons on his under robe! These were hand-crafted from a fellow artist her in Kentucky. I met him at the Minnie Adkins Day show I did back in July and as soon as I saw these buttons I knew I would use them on a Santa. This felt like the right Santa. It adds to the charm of this woodland fellow! Santa’s sweet annie garland that he holds in his hands also contains two small bird feathers. I think these add such a nice touch to the woodland theme. But it’s also a small detail that you might not even notice right away. The wool used for Santa’s beard and hair is my favorite type of wool! I think it’s just so soft and appealing. It adds such a nice, old world touch to this charming fellow.

Please enjoy the many photos I took of Woodland Santa #248!
