It took a lot of coaxing, but Sergei finally decided to let me take his picture. Of course it helped that I had a few friends for backup.
The carolers were made by one of the couples who did crafts for my boutique. They were copied from the ceramic pieces I showed in another post. I displayed them in front of my store, when I had it, then later used them on the porch at our Pottsville home and now we are using them on our porch here. They are about twenty years old, and are showing wear.
