My new fav. antique, and craftshow update

First I want to say that my craftshow was a huge success. I broke my all time record for sales.  So much so, that I was too busy to get my camera out and take pictures.  Needless to say,  I'll be going back next year, as long as my son doesn't get married on that day.
Next,  I want to show you my new favorite antique.  My father gave this to me on Monday.  I just love it!  He's had it forever, and I always wanted it.  My siblings would poo-poo it anyway! LOL.... I think it will be my new favorite Christmas decoration.  It would make an awesome tree topper, or sit on my antique desk with a prim h/c carrot and old mittens.  It's out now, and will stay on my desk.

It collapses!!!
Wouldn't Frosty would be proud to wear this hat?  The spectacles were my Grandfathers, the clock was from an old light house that a distant relative lived in.  The Ladys desk came from our old historic church. They were throwing it away in the early 1970's and my father rescued it.  They used to serve communion from it.  It still has the tack holes all around from where they would tack a skirt to it.  The top is one board, which shows how old it is.
Just a few of my favorite things!!  I love things with history.  New just can't compare.  I'm getting to be that way too.  I'm full of history.
Thank's for visiting.
