Quality in Decorative Design......
I know it isn't Christmas time anymore. I had this sitting on the table ready to box it and I thought I need to take some shots of this. I bought this Santa on a sale from JC Penney years ago. We don't do much Santa stuff in our decorating but this item really caught my eye. The detailing is something you couldn't buy today at Hobby Lobby. The gold design on the material of the coat is perfect for the piece. Fur like edging and a gold cord for a belt. The hat has the same cloth with gold decoration.
The teddy bear is a great character for Santa to carry around with him. The dark green cloth is in great contrast to the red coat. Critiquing an ornament is a first for me but I like pointing out well designed things that really are a work of art.
I am in the middle school today doing English and a couple periods of physical education. I will work all 8 periods today and I am hoping lunch is scheduled in there somewhere. Sometime it is not.
Warming up to 11 degrees F. makes it feel warm after being in the negatives for so long. Thank you for stopping by today.
I will be proofing this blog later today so if you read it early morning I hope there are not too many mistakes.
