“I have created this Father Christmas just for you. I have stirred in some memory and tradition, too.
I’ve mixed in old toys for good little boys and jewels and curls for good little girls.
He is one of a kind, made with love and great pleasure. He seeks a warm home where he’ll be held as a treasure.” Kay Burkhart.
