~Little Pinecone Elves~

Oh, I just love these cute little pinecone elves....... I remember them being so popular when I was growing up. They just make me smile...when I saw them at the peddlers fair last year I knew they'd be coming home with me.
These little fellas are clustered around a very old glass Christmas tree decanter that's been in my father's family for years.
Their cute little faces are made of celluloid.............
Each little elf has a pinecone body and little pipe cleaner arms and legs. Their outfits are made from tiny pieces of brightly colored felt. I think much attention to detail was made when creating them.
Such cute little impish faces.....I think they are keeping lots of holiday secrets. Have a lovely evening...hugs, Linda

These are so adorable! I have never seen anything like these before. I am glad they came home to live with you. I think if you listen close enough, you will be able to hear all those Christmas secrets they can tell.
