Absolutely darling Santa. Twill be a Xmas gift for my Scottish mother. She’ll love it. Thanks
At the Robert Burns supper for our local Scottish Society, I saw this piece as an auction item, part of their event fundraiser. Well, it was so cute and so "Scottish"; I knew it would fetch a pretty penny and I would likely be outbid...or, regret the price paid even if I did win it. So, I checked the box, deduced its origin, said to myself, "I can figure out how to get one for myself at a more modest price." So, looking up the website on my ipad, I soon became ENTHRALLED with all the Christmas ornaments from Old World Christmas!! I sat there pretty much ignoring the poetry or the experssions of ethnic pride for the rest of the supper, just scrolling there on my tablet, all evening, looking at all the ornaments for sale. After an order of several hundred dollars, including multiple copies (like 8) of this one for all my kindred Scots in the immediate family, I have become a fan and an addict for Old World Christmas ornaments. They are wonderful, bearing exquisite craftsmanship and artistry. These have become go-to gifts for many on my list of friends and family.... This highlander, yes, and all the rest. Can't say enough about how much I enjoy seeing and sharing them.
Hi Tom- The Highland Santa is a much loved ornament here too, we hope he brings much joy to you and all you gift him to. We love to hear about our collectors traditions, both new and old.
Visions of sugar plums danced in my head as I nestled back into my cozy seat, and in a flash the train was off. Reflecting on my trip while munching on the second pretzel I was amazed with my unexpected trip wondering how I’d describe my trip. If only I had a memento. I carefully unwrapped my early Christmas present from the hands of the man himself to discover delightful replicas of each place I visited. Knowing I’d set it up each Christmas, as a magical visual of an incredible trip, I was thankful for the story to go with it.
