Now, here is the third of those original three obscure looking felteds. By the way, the other two are up for sale at my SHOP! hint, hint!

I love his smile! I made his mouth, eyes and buttons with french knots. French knots are also on his hat. I wanted to add something to his bottom so he wouldn't fade into the snow - so I added to bunbuns.
He's pretty folksy looking and a bit vintage and nostalgic. He certainly represents children and animals which should be very present during the holidays and winter. I can see him in a child's room, too. Of course, hanging out with other seasonal "Collectibles" is great, too. Now I sounds like I'm promoting. Well, that's alright - I'm being an advocate for Snowmen!
And of course, my dear friend snatched him up before he was on Etsy for too long . Another one is finished this morning - birch trees, snow, river. I'm painting the little easels white. Thought that would be a good idea. I had thought of decorating them, but I don't want anything to detract from the scene itself.
It's rather odd for me to be thinking of making Christmas/winter felteds. We just finished Halloween - but one has to think ahead. Problem is I have so many ideas going through my head *usually when I wake up* or *late at night*. Then there's Thanksgiving!! I refuse to felt a turkey - being a vegetarian I don't quite cotton to that. But I also will NOT felt a ToFurkey, either. (made one once - tasted like gluten in a pantyhose).
