"Other things of beauty" may not apply here, but thought crafters might get a hoot out of these characters my old Aunt Betty made! She was an elementary art teacher, and was always doing unusual things! At xmas they had a huge display in their front yard, as well as filling the big picture windows in the front of their house....not limited to traditional xmas figures! The granny is soft sculpture, and then there's her version of Kermit! Lol!
