Amy the Lost Christmas Elf

Quickly after Halloween , I find myself completely caught up in Christmas! I know its early , but I sort of celebrate Thanksgiving as an extension of my Christmas spirit ! LOL. Today I would like to share Amy, and her story with you.



Amy was once one of Santa’s helpers long long ago. Her main job at Christmas time was loading the sleigh, and insuring the safety of all the toys aboard. She loved her job , because she knew it would bring  smiles and joy on all of the little girls and boys faces on Christmas morning.

Then, one Christmas eve, a doll for Chrissy Ann B., somehow toppled out of Santas bag as Santa himself was going down the chimney of another child. “Oh No!” cried Amy , who always rode along to insure all the toys were safe. She hurried down the side of the large sleigh, and dove after the small porcelain doll.

The doll fell into the rain gutter , and Amy climbed through the snow after her. She was able to recover the small doll, but unfortunately Santa, in a hustle and bustle of a  hurry on his busiest of nights, called his reindeer and flew off, not knowing Amy had left the safety of the warm  sleigh.
Amy , cold and shivering in the night, was able to squeeze through a small hole leading into the attic of the house with the doll in hand. Not wanting to be discovered, she slipped into an old steam trunk that had been used in the attic for storage and long forgotten by the family.

Many years and a few generations later, the family cleaned out the attic, and found Amy and her doll in the old steam trunk.  Amy , after being discovered, conveyed her tale to the nice family . She was very relieved after all of this time just to be out of the trunk.
Unfortunately for Amy again, this nice family was moving away,and were unable
to take Amy with them. She is now looking for a new adventure and a new
adoptive home. She likes smiles, tea, other dolls and toys , and an occasional snicker doodle (she is an elf after all!)

 Amy is one of 2 dolls , I will be sharing on PFATT (Primitive Folk Art Trinkets and Treasures Group).  I will be sharing her friend Lily with you tomorrow here on the blog :-)

Both dolls will be available for adoption on PFATT on Thursday November 10 at 1pm eastern 10 am pacific.
