A Merry Little Christmas


Just wanted to include some more "Christmas Merries" for you to enjoy!

You can almost hear them singing..."Fa La La La La!"

Sorry... these guys need a closeup!

Snapped a picture of these adorable snowmen at my friend Deb's Christmas Brunch.
Aren't they precious? (ok-ok- I made a couple of them! But I love seeing my work
in my friends' homes! Makes me smile!).

This is one of my little Santas in his workshop.

One of the many wooden ornaments we hang on our tree. This was an important one...Cole was born-
and our family was complete!

This is my fuzzy little bird's nest I found hiding in our tree last year.
Its supposed to bring good luck if you find one!

For more of my work, you can find me on Etsy!

And... you can follow me on Pinterest!

My Christmas Gentlemen


The German Santa Claus known as Rubezahl

Another German Santa...Weinachtsmann- or the Christmas Man

King Frost of Russia

 St. Nicholas

St. Nicholas.... one of my very first ones~
A little Swedish Tompte


Let the Christmas Spirit continue ~

As  I was taking a stroll down "memory lane" to find pictures
of my Santas, I came upon some more of my items from Christmas Past.
Would love to share these with you too...

First of all, just had to share a picture of my sister Patty,
who flies up from Jacksonville, Florida, to help me every year.
She is truly one of SANTA"S LITTLE HELPERS!
Santa & I could not do without her!
If you were admiring the beautiful stockings,
Patty sews them all!
(Head over to my Etsy Shop if you want to see the entire
Stocking Collection: carolreynoldsdesigns.etsy.com).

Absolutely LOVE my little trio of reindeer!

Truly one of my favorite things.... an antique German Putz church from the late 1800's.
The inside is as detailed as the outside of the church. I love the way candles glow softly from the
little windows and softly illuminate the antique Putz deer & elves.
When placed on an antique mirror,
the church scene is stunning.

This is Madge... my wonderful old mannequin.
I decided to decorate her this year instead of a tree!
