A very special St. Nicholas ~

Here's a bucket bench I've owned for many years
diplaying one of my favorite pieces ~
Saint Nicholas
painted by my dear Mom.

Her attention to detail was amazing.
This was done when she was in her 60's.
Her hands were so steady then.
Thanks, Mom,
for gifting me with such a treasure.
Pug hugs :)

I was checking out the rest of your photos, wonderful decorations and lots of old world charm.

Lauren ~ Your mother did a great job painting the St. Nicholas! It looks perfect on your bucket bench with your antique treasures.
