On one Christmas Eve, Tom woke up at midnight hearing his family’s German shephard barking wildly in the house. He quickly rushed down stairs, and to his delight, there he was, ol’ Saint Nick himself, being attacked by the raging canine! I certainly hope you like the stockings above the fireplace . . .
This story doesn’t say how Santa got away, but he has his ways, doesn’t he? Perhaps he whacked it with his bag. Anyhow, as you can see, this vignette is stud-less except for the fire in the hearth, Santa’s white button, and the dog’s stud. Santa’s hat is sticking straight up to show how surprised he was to meet his contender. This vignette contains about 60 pieces and took about 15 minutes to build over a period of a day.
