Looks comfortable, doesn't he?

G'day. Let me introduce you to my big Aussie Santa. I started my Christmas decorating last week and this jolly fellow was the first to find his position and he doesn't look in any hurry to relinquish his post on one of the lounge chairs. I made this Santa many moons ago and even though there was room for improvement, he is still one of my favourites.

He is about four foot tall and he wears a pair of overalls made from red fleecy fabric and has a lovely green check shirt underneath.He usually sits at the dining room table, but this year because we are having Xmas lunch here in our new home, there is sadly no room for him, so he has found the next best position. Our little brown dog doesn't quite to know what to make of him and he actually growled at him when he first saw him on the chair. It was very funny to see the expression on little brown dogs face.

This chair happens to be the one that hubby favours when he is reading, because it gets the light from both large windows and he said to me the other day "I hope he's  not going to stay there, where will I sit?" I couldn't help but laugh out loud. I said, "He's only a stuffed doll, move him" Poor Santa ended up being tossed on the floor in an ungainly manner. When hubby saw the look on my face his said "He's only a stuffed doll, he'll survive" But, Santa is back in his rightful spot, for the moment anyway. Take care. Liz...


  1. Tee hee! I love him. All he needs is a rusty ute with 6 white boomers! I hope hubby knows if he isn't nice to Santa he can kiss a nice pressie goodbye!

  2. Very funny story :D I love hubby's quick come back. Poor little brown dog. I hope Santa doesn't lose a leg!
