You have heard of Santa and Fred Claus? Well this is Okra Claus. He is a painted bit of okra who resembles Santa and his brother Fred (from the movie). He hangs out every year on our tree. But why okra, you ask? Because. (Don't forget, we're originally from Louisiana where okra is a staple of the Cajun/Creole diet).

And this makes #3 in my random "Treasures on Our Tree" series.

Happy Christmas, y'all!

@Wolfgang Prigge: Homemade by somebody crafty, not me.

I eat most everything - except okra. Somehow growing up in CT didn't prepare me for any 'slippery' foods. *Smile* ... Cute ornament!
