December 26, 2011--Santa in his skivvies

This was a gift for a friend who loves clotheslines, but I had to take a picture of it in the windowsill before giving it away.  The only natural material here is moss--two kinds, a sheet moss and a cushion moss from Flower Camp.  Santa and his clothes came from an old-fashioned sheet of paperdolls I bought at a Christmas tree farm near Howardsville. The clothesline poles are wooden skewers; the tiny clothespins came from Michaels (the craft store). This may be too clever by half, but it sure was fun to create. Just cutting out the Santa paperdoll clothes took me back to cutting out paperdoll clohtes from McCalls magazine.
