davis and i stoped at Steak & Shake for a quick lunch and across the aisle was an older couple. the lady had the most unique Santa Claus necklace. i caught her attention and mentioned that i liked her necklace and she told me (proudly) that her husband had made it....he had handcarved it!
we continued to chit chat and she mentioned the big chicken and i mentioned that i went to a quilt shop close to the big chicken...you know....
so we get up to leave and she asks if i'm in a hurry...i say no and she mentions that her husband has gone out to the car to get me something...?
oh my cutie pie goodness! my very own hand carved santa....the thimble is my grandmother's thimble for scale...he will live in my thimble cabinet.
thank you mr. ransom! you have no idea how tickled i am! you made my day!
he doesn't have a website to share...if you want, i have his contact info.
Christmas is a necessity.
There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves. ~Eric Sevareid
