This Elf was named after a very good friend, bet your scared now by the company I keep, lol. Full of piss and vinegar, thats what Ernie and this little Elf have in common, can't you just see it, lol. Ernie was sculpted over a wooden spoon to look as though he is part of a candy Peppermint Stick. He was so much fun to create!! I will be listing him in my Etsy shop. Trying to get better pictures of him. I take horrible pictures, sorry. Sure hope he made you smile too.
