by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
And, just for good measure - one more offering of felt and sequin loveliness - this vintage beauty I found downtown in an antiques shop a few years ago. This was one of those things where I saw it, loved it, wanted it, didn't buy it, couldn't get it out of my mind, went back later- and it was still there! Hooray! Must have been meant to be mine. It's huge - 35 inches long!
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
