Ok First Old Prim Picture

Ok this prim is the first in a series of stories I will be publishing this week about my older prims and how it got me started in this whole primitive business. This prim is one I hold the dearest because I made it with my father when I was 15 yrs old.

The story behind this guy is my dad was making wooden crafts for my mother to sell at local shows and shops. He decided to try his hand at whittling wood. Well, he didn't like the way this santa turned out and so he threw it in the trash can he has in his workshop.

I was walking by and saw it and I saw a vision of what it could look like so I dug it out of the trash can, painted it and sanded it and put antiquing stain on it and walla here he is now 22 years later! My dad was amazed at how it transformed after being painted. I have kept this since I was 15. I am 37 now. Every time I bring it out for Christmas it reminds me of this story and time.....
