Jeanne and I played Santa and Mrs. Claus for years at a place called High Hill Ranch in an area north of Placerville Ca. known as Apple Hill. Jeanne designed my costume based on an 1800ís version of Father Christmas. The coat I am wearing was made from a tapestry showing faces of children from around the world. The vest and pants are red wool with gold buttons. Jeanneís cloak design is what's called a Kinsale cloak. The cloak is made from dark blue wool with a light blue lining and closed at the neck with an antique clasp. The green wool vest and puffed sleeve blouse she is wearing are also dated from the mid 1800ís.
