Connie's Santa

One of my favorite gifts this year was this ceramic Santa that my friend, Connie, gave me.  He was so handsome in his red suit and hat, sitting in my dining room for the whole Christmas season.  When I look at him, I can see Connie sitting at her table, painting away, and concentrating on getting everything just right. I love knowing she spent her precious time making this art for me.

Today, he is wrapped in a quilt in a big, blue bin, ready to be taken to the storage room until around Thanksgiving next year.  I'm looking forward to using this gift every Christmas that I get to experience from now on!
