Friday Artist: Diane’s Heirloom Santas

December 5, 2014

By Tab Byrum

Tomorrow, December 6th is St. Nicholas Day, a holiday mainly celebrated in northern Europe when gifts are left in children’s shoes.  I first heard about it several years ago when a customer at our store always brought us treats on or near December 6th.  Today in honor of St. Nicholas Day I thought I would highlight an artist who creates beautiful Santas, Diane Smith.

Diane lives and works in Palm Harbor, Florida and she creates gorgeous Santas using all kinds of fabrics, vintage furs, ornaments and toys.  I found Diane through her Etsy store, let’s have a look at Santa through the eyes of an American artist, Enjoy!!!
