Vintage Thingie Thursday

Many of our grands like to select a gift for us in addition to the gift their parents give us at 

Several years ago Hannah and Holly
choose these items for our gifts.

Hautman Brothers Pitcher
Cardinal in Holly

Cardinal in Holly

The Hautman Brothers have established themselves as America's foremost family of wildlife artists. The three brothers have received numerous honors and awards, and have been a dominating presence in many state and national duck stamp competitions. At last count, the three brothers have seen their art featured on over 43 state and federal conservation stamps. Jim, Bob and Joe are the only brothers to win the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp Contest - which they have now won 8 times! The talents of the Hautman Brothers as well as their unique family gift were mentioned in the motion picture "FARGO." They have received national accolades on television and National Public Radio, and from newspapers such as USA TODAY, THE WASHINGTON POST, THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE and THE ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, as well as TIME, US NEWS & WORLD REPORT, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, U.S. ART, FUR-FISH-GAME and NORTH AMERICAN HUNTER magazines. The Hautmans' artwork has been displayed in the OVAL OFFICE and the SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTES in Washington D.C.
These are so beautiful and I particularly love to use them at Christmas.
I am so grateful for the precious grandchildren that God has blessed us with.
Go here to see more beauties on VTT

Oh beautiful pieces! My mother has several cardinal and holly pieces out in our house at Christmas time when I was growing up. Not sure if they are the same as yours or not but they certainly made me feel nostalgic! Happy VTT!

I love the cardinals featured on the vase and the pitcher. Awesome gift given to you with lots of love. What could be better than that? I loved the history too. Most of all I love birds in general.
Hugs, Jeanne
