Description

Ho ho ho, Santa has arrived in my shop!

This dapper St. Nick has come just in time to brighten your holidays and bring you a smile, from his rumpled patterned hat to his polished boot toes.

Don't be fooled by that oh-so-sweet smile, however; he comes armed with a bucket of snowballs! Despite some age-related arthritis he's still a fairly decent shot.

I would also recommend the postman escort him to your door, for some poor self control has led to that increase in girth. He is NOT about to fit down a chimney, at least until sometime after New Year's resolutions. (this year it will be a Lean Quisine only diet)

Santa is created from one pear gourd, paper mache and paperclay. His color scheme consists of a beautiful turquoise with antique white spots; his hat is sort of painterly pattern of turquoise, antique white and navy. The hat has a wire inside to be posed however you wish, usually with entertaining results!

He measures approximately 7" tall by 3" wide.
Lightweight with audible gourd seeds inside.
Please convo me if additional shipping requirements, such as international, expedited, etc.
My standard shipping method is priority mail.

This is a funny and personable Santa. Love his long, white beard and cheesy smile! How cute that he is tilted sideways (possibly because that was the shape of the gourd) and clutching his bucket of pom-pom snowballs. Also love the mixed media textures with his festively printed fabric Santa hat too! Mama Gourds can be counted on to have clever and creatively designed pieces and wonderful quality. That's why I have several of Lisa's creations, and will be back for more! Super fast, safely packaged shipping as well!
