Around the kitchen...

This flying Santa keeps the lid on my delicious Christmas cookies recipes box.
They are all top secret!
Not really. I just don't have the heart to tell him. He even brought his watchdog.

Ooops! Yesterday, I forgot to post my Victorian Carolers my mom made back in the 70's.
The mom and daughter are sporting genuine mink!
Shhh... Don't tell PETA.

This next little Christmas imp is right up there with the "Dorothy Doll" as far as my favorite pieces go. I'm sure you're wondering why...

No. It's not his weird eyes and squishy face.
Although I do love them.
It has something to do with when you remove his hat.
Ready???
