My friend Kelly sent me a very funny story about Santa and his reindeer which no doubt must be true!
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game,
while both male and female reindeers grow antlers in
the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers
at the beginning of winter, usually late November to
Female reindeers retain their antlers till after they
give birth in the
spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical
rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer, EVERY single one
of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We
should’ve known… ONLY women would be able to drag a
fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost!!
I have one more stocking to offer this year. I made this from felted ivory wool that I have embellished with vintage dogwood appliques and the most gorgeous hand sewn beaded trim. My mother in law gave me this trim, it was made for her in Korea over 35 years ago!
I’m going to pop this into my Etsy shop and if it doesn’t sell then I will have to keep this beauty for myself!
Well, THIS woman would get lost…no doubt about that. My husband says men don’t ask for directions because when they asked for directions in the past, they got really goofy answers…like “well, you go ‘cross the whistle and take a right at the cat.” The “whistle” turned out to be a drainpipe under the road. The “cat” was apparently a tractor (Caterpiller brand.)
Love the story and it peobally is true!!Mary
It’s fabulous Suzy. I’d probably have to buy it if I didn’t already have extras comin’ out of my ears!
Hilarious story about the reindeer!
Love the stocking!
Have a fabulous weekend!
I FOUND YOU! You left me a comment on my blog this morning, and you didn’t know that I have been looking for you! I found you several weeks ago when you posted that GORGEOUS mirror out of vintage jewelry, and I immediately went to Etsy to buy it…but it was sold! I am putting you on my favorites…I won’t lose you again…
That stocking is so pretty, I love the pointy toe and the vintage trim.
That stocking is gorgeous! I have been telling everyone who will listen about the female reindeers. Of course it must be true. I have tagged you for the holiday hoopla, so please see my posting today. xxoo, Susan
