Did you see my new banner? If not, clear your cache and refresh. Those little guys are smokers. I consider them cousins to the Nutcracker. I may be wrong, but I think they are German. At least that is where mine are from. My mom has been giving one to my brothers and I for many Christmases now. The ones in the banner are only part of my collection. I love taking them out of the boxes and lining them up on our mantle each year.
This little Santa is one of the older ones. I love his eyes – they have character. All of these smokers can burn incense, too. If you take the top half off, there is a little metal disc to put incense on. Pop the top back on and smoke comes out of the mouth. The girls are very concerned about this. I tell them they are right, smoking isn’t good for you, but don’t worry, these guys are made of wood.
We have a couple other Christmas collections. I will share those as soon as the light allows me to get some decent photos. Happy Wednesday!
