Hubert’s Christmas Eve Dilemma

Oh, heck. Should I call Nellie back, or not? I should have just said “yes, I’ll come to dinner,” in the first place. Darn it anyway! Well, she had to go invite Uncle Beauregard. That old crazy coot. Who can get along with Uncle Beauregard? Still …. Christmas Eve alone…. me, my violin, my Christmas cards and nothing but this cheese, while they’re having turkey with the trimmings, probably mincemeat pie and eggnog! Hmp. Should’ve just said yes. They’re having way more fun than me!"

I usually make miniatures for Christmas gifts. This is from last year — so is the photo – one of a series made in little wooden chests with a living room on one side, a closet on the other. The neat thing is, the boxes close and lock, thus protecting all the tiny stuff inside from dust unless the piece is on display.

I made the Christmas tree, the cards, the fruit, the sheet music and the record albums. Hubert is 2 " tall — a dog, as you can see (not officially a teddy bear) – one of several I found at the Dollar Store. I like to work with “found items,” things I make myself and used dollhouse furniture; but the wooden table and the violin I bought from (Hobby and Builders Supply).

Hubert says, “Merry Christmas! And forgive your relatives. Every family probably has an Uncle Beauregard. Share the holidays! Love is what it’s all about.”
