Each Santa is different, but they all have glasses that frosted over because of Santa's wild Christmas Eve ride delivering presents through a stormy Christmas Evening and Christmas Morning. Although his glasses were all frosted over he was still going strong and he was already looking forward to the next year.
Approximately  2 ½  x 3 ½    $55.00


The Santa with a Pipe Ornament is inspired by the words from
The Night Before Christmas which reads,
"A stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth…" 

Each hand carved Santa Ornament will be carved with traditional woodcarving tools.
Santa will always be portrayed with a pipe of various styles and no two ornaments will be exactly alike. The back of each Santa will be a winter night time motif, but they will be varied.

They are truly an original work of art by woodcarver Millard Harrell.

In Santa’s magical world at the North Pole there are some other helpers beside the elves that are an important part of getting things done up there.  These other helpers are probably nearest to what we would call robots.  You see, Santa, by using a little “laying his finger aside of his nose” magic can make snowmen move, walk and do simple chores.  The magic Santa works on snowmen is highly influenced by Santa’s mood and physical health.  For instance, once when Santa was really hungry and he had just heard that Mrs. Claus had made some snow ice cream, his magic somehow went a little awry and he turned a couple of snowmen into “Cannibal Snowmen” that ate up the other snowmen as fast as he and the elves could make them.  That of course was an unusual situation and most of Santa’s “laying his finger aside of his nose” magic works splendidly to create helpful hard working and pleasant snowmen.  

The snowmen, of course, do all of their activities outside where it is always cold.  Their activities range from singing outside Santa’s workshop window to keep the elves entertained to shoveling snow up in piles so Santa and the elves can later make them into other snowmen.  

Although snowmen are always ice cold, they have a warm heart.  Once while the snowmen were singing outside the work shop window, they noticed a baby reindeer that was getting too cold.  They immediately gather around the baby reindeer to shield him from the cold wind.  Although snowmen are robotic-like, they can display quite human characteristics at times.

This collection of snowmen can maybe prod, poke, tug and pull adults imagination to attribute some job or characteristic to each one of these hand carved snowmen.
Approximately  3 ½ x  3 ½ x 5    $70.00
