...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


holiday whimsy

Crooked, colorful trees!
Each stuffed, beaded and embellished
on a wooden base.

These handblown glass snowmen
were made locally by Sean Kennedy.
They're French, can you tell by the stylish beret
the fellow on the right is sporting?
'Frosty le Bonhomme de Neige'
or would it be
'Glacé le Bonhomme de Neige?'

These guys were meant to be Santa twins, but they became Wise Men instead.
They're stuffed, clothed in canvas, and handpainted.
They're looking after their treasure of frankincense and myrrh.
These wintry little sheep
are dressed in their finest hats and scarves,
are they sure are curious and gossipy creatures.
They found a mysterious shiny present
and all gathered around it.
They Baaaaaaa and wonder,
Baaaaaaat what is this?
The sheep here (and all of the felted items in this post)
are handmade by Suzie Poe, and can be found at Handwork
Our resident Toad Prince
decided to migrate indoors for the winter
and so he brought his small palace (made by PoFu Pottery)
along with him.
He's quite happy atop the piano,
because he really loves being regaled by fine music.
A winged angel sheep comes by to
give him divinely inspired counsel.
These sheep suffer from Christmas Delusional Disorder (aka CDD),
in which they think every day is Christmas.
They frolic about with their holly and ivy
and have such a jolly time,
all day, every day. 
I guess some delusions are fun if you can share them with a friend!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Sheep
is relaxing this holiday season,
letting that sucker Rudolph the Reindeer
do all of the work,
since he gets all of the glory anyway.
