What, another Mrs. Claus?

With this latest incarnation of Santa I couldn’t resist making a Mrs. Claus in the same style to see how she would look. Before I made the first Mrs. I’d had so many ideas of what I could have her doing, and the very first idea was to have her holding a cookie sheet of cookies she had just taken from the oven. This idea stayed with me so I felt I should do a figure with a cookie sheet of ginger bread boys.
This little gal is approximately 10 ½“tall and the perfect size to be one of the last three Santa’s wife. I’ve dressed her in a lighter pallet than I did for the others in this style as it is more feminine and works well with her white hair. Speaking of hair, her hair is worn in a long braid hanging down her back. Our little Mrs. has a playful nature as we all know, and her striped stockings are proof of it.
When decorating her kitchen, Mrs. Claus chose to use her favorite colors. Everything is red and green, of course. Her oven mitts match the dish towels and curtains and the seat cushions of the benches and chairs. Even the walls have touches of red and green. If I continue making figures of Mrs. Claus in the kitchen I’m going to have to do a painting of the kitchen for her to be photographed in front of.


Please forgive the photography and the wrinkles in the back ground as it is tissue and hard to smooth out.










I sat her centered on the shelf with the other Santas and I caught two of them eyeing the cookies. You could tell they were thinking, "What's she doing with only six cookies? That's not going to be enough to go around."
I’m going to my sister’s for a workshop this week so I won’t be posting or blogging for a few days. Hopefully when I get back I’ll have something to show you.
Have a wonderful week, and thanks for visiting.

Hi Miss Maddyrose.

WOW, I love Mrs. Santa, and my favorite subject COOKIES. Yum....

Mom had an idea, you could make a "room box" kitchen. That way you can use if for other themes. Gee, I could help you find the miniatures to scale that you would need. That's the easy-peasy part.

Hugs
