Christobel the elf girl


Christobel the elf girl has found a perfect place on the round window. Melanie sent her last year for me as a Christmas present, and her place was on top of our fireplace. The problem was that it was a bit too warm for her, and she is such a nosey little girl who wants to see and know everything. From her old place she could only see the back yard, and not even the bird feeder, so there really was not much to see. Here she sits next to our front door, and can see who is coming and who is going in the street, and she can see the sun rise and birds in the apple trees (if she turns her head just a little). Christobel can see the Finnish elves sneaking around behind windows and making notes of the behaviour of the children, and most important of all, she can see when Santa brings his gifts behind our door so we can go and take them in. Santa is so busy that he will not stop at houses where there are no small children, so we will not get a real visit from him.

  1. The moment I read the titel to the post, I thought of Melanie. She brought a beautiful elf into your home. Christobel must love the place where she is sitting now. Hope she gets enough sleep, with so much to see.
    Does Christobel share what she sees with you?

  2. Santa might think that Christobel is a small child and leave you a present. I used to have a goat named Christobel, she was nosey too.
