Christmas at the White House

Scroll down to the Clinton years....
Over her eight White House holiday seasons, First Lady Hillary Clinton showcased the talents of America’s artistic communities. Her 1993 “angels” theme coincided with “The Year of American Craft,” and the Blue Room tree was decked in 7,000 fiber, ceramic, glass, metal and wood angel ornaments.

We were doing crafts shows at the time and my husband carved a wooden angel ornament and painted her in red, white and blue. I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the angel he submitted,
but it was chosen to hang on the White House Christmas tree and he did receive a nice
certificate and Christmas card from the White House.

Here are some other Santas he carved that year. His hands aren't what they used to be so he hasn't done this for a long time.
