This Santa and his cape have a history. He is wearing my Mother's mink stole.
The stole was given to me when my Mother passed away. I could not bring myself to wear animal fur and so...
I made Santa a cape out of it! My sister's couldn't believe what I did!
Now, every Christmas, I put Santa out and admire the stole. I am reminded of all the times that I saw my Mother wear it.
It looks better on Santa that it would on me!
