A very happy day to you!
I hope that wherever you are you are staying warm and cozy! It has been pretty chilly for sunny CA, but I really love the cold weather during Christmas time. The lowest at night has been high 30's and during the day upper 40's. I love it! Thank you all for your sweet comments on my Christmas hanger!
Well, it has been a lucky week in finding some jolly old friends! A couple of weeks ago while out hunting for Christmas treasures, I saw a sweet vintage Santa toy behind the counter ready to be taken home, but for some reason I just wasn't sure if I was scared of him or not. So, I passed him up but just couldn't stop thinking about him.
This week I ended up going back to the store and found three of these jolly Santa dolls, but again just wasn't sure even after seeing them a second time, so of course I left them behind. I came home last night and thought how ridiculous I was to not take them, because I always regret and kick myself for not getting something down the road. So, I headed out early this morning arriving at the store to still find them there! Yay!
They are vintage Rushton Company 17" Santa plush dolls. Each one so unique and truly a work of art with all the detailing in their faces! The green corduroy one is my favorite! There is just something about that emerald green that I love!
All very nice condition for their age, which I believe is 50's-60's. They all stand, but are a little wobbly.
Don't you just love that smile! As I continue to look at them in my home, they don't scare me anymore, and I have actually become a little giddy how cute they really are.
I will be keeping these two above to treasure and add to my Christmas decorations...
but will be selling this one in my shoppe for someone else to enjoy and love! You can find more details about this jolly guy here!
Well, I am putting the finishing touches on my felt stockings and will be back later in the week to show you! Hope that you are having a crafty and lovely week, and stay warm!
