Archie Snowdon

He's the man!Archie is a one of a kind papier mache snowman who I have just listed on Ebay. He is decorated with a lot of fu fu. A fleece scarf, a velvet hat band with some whispers of fibers resembling feathers sticking out. His  wire arms are posable. He holds hand made suckers, a candy cane and two vintage style tags created by none other than Jan Davis of Big Brown Dog Graphics check her out on Digital Antiques on Etsy for some really sweet tags, labels, graphics, etc. His vest is handpainted in two hues of green.
