 This odd looking thing is what is left of my mums Christmas Santa that was made of icing!! It sat on the first Christmas cake she ever bought when i was new born!! Its hung on my mums tree for 30 year  and mine for the same amount of time...its worn away to just the cotton wool inside the icing long gone  generations of children  holding it and sometimes having a sly lick of Santa's scarlet iced coat!!!i haven't the heart to throw it out!!my children would  kill me!! its the first decoration they look for!!!


 A lovely gift from my cousin Liz i love it a needle holder................
