Spool Santas


These are all santas I have carved from different spools. Most of the spools are from old textile mills, but some are just thread spools. I like to carve on all kinds of antique objects. I have carved on old potatoe mashers, cullander pins, rolling pins, and about anything wood I can find. I hunt antique stores and garage sales.
Yesterday, as almost every Saturday, I went garaging. I found a rolling pin that was pretty neat, so I will be carving that soon.
Next to carving, and painting, I love garaging. What fun!

What a lovely display! Its neat to think how you can carve on just about anything. The spools are just so neat but even an old potato masher? Wow. And I love the way rolling pins age.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing.

WOW...these santas are amazing. Do you sell them. Because I would love to have one of these. I love christmas and santas and I love sewing (spools) so this would be perfect.
