As you can see, AmberRose and inky, the photograph featuring the little cotton-batting girl skipping rope on snowball is very poorly executed. However, this photo shows her off just a little bit better than the Tiffany/Orrefors entries, so…. Her skirt is pastel pink crepe paper, and her rope is a tinsel pipe cleaner. She has red shoes and a smiling face. Cody Foster / Backporch Friends line.
Father Winter is looking pensive - perhaps grave. Perhaps that's because I’ve mis-introduced him -- his real name is "Snowball Santa". He carries a snowball head with ruffled collar on staff. Another delightful Nicol Sayre design - fashioned of composition, crepe papers, pompom, glitter, tinsel, and box. Again, very poor photos!
Thank you! AmberRose and inky, I really appreciate your appreciation!
Now, the candleholder in the forefront of Photo 1 is an old American pressed glass candle holder. I am guessing that it is perhaps very old, possibly end of nineteenth century. Observe the base - it's just like some of those late nineteenth century cake stands. Possibly TallCakes would recognize it. No one would buy it at the Salvation Army – even though it was only $1.00. It followed me home….
