Santa Remake!

Remember these? This is the old pair of Santa and Mrs. Santa that my husbands Aunt gave to us when the girls were very young. They adored them...but that was a long time ago...and they have seen better days...so I decided to redo them.

I could not post them any earlier because I did not want Emily to see them before she got here and could see them all set up.

I replaced the candles with cooking utensils, gave Santa a cooking apron instead of his red coat, removed Mrs. Santa's old shawl...

..and even made a butcher block table for all of their cookies! I must have done a good job, because Madison reminds me to turn them on every day! The dolls are still animated.

Julie, that is so precious and I just gave one of my older ones away. Never thought of re-doing it. I love it. Hugs, Pat
