Hohum is dressed up in his Santa hat, ready to spend the holidays with your kitty. Hohum is made from two shades of green fleece. His eyes are black and white felt. His Santa hat is made from red fleece and white fake fur. He is filled with potent organic catnip, two bells encased in fleece, and fiberfill. He measures 4" tall by 3" wide.

This little quilt measures only 11x12 and depicts a cold winter's night with a full silvery moon. There are button snowflakes in the dark sky and the snow is sparkling in the fields and village.

This necklace features an enameled spiral in pink and greens to match the petite tourmaline faceted rondelle beads.

The chain is soldered link in antiqued copper and the clasp has been hand made and hammered by me from copper wire.
