Included are a snowman, santa claus, christmas tree, a christmas doll, trolls and small decorative Christmas figurines for the Christmas tree. You need a basic knowledge of crochet to read the patterns. Sizes: You can make the doll smaller or bigger by using different yarn and hook, without changing the patterns. The small dolls are 1.8 to 2.6 inches (4.5 to 6.5 cm) high. The big dolls are 5 to 8.5 inches (12.5 cm to 21.5 cm) high.

Hampstead Heath is London's favourite open space, walked over by thousands every day. This richly illustrated book unveils what anyone strolling on the Heath can watch out for, including a geological structure unique for London, nurturing very particular flora; veteran trees; the 'ghosts' of ancient woodland and hedgerows dating back to the Middle Ages and beyond; Anglo-Saxon estate boundaries; traces of the great estates of the 18th century, of which Kenwood is the sole survivor. As the authors explains, the Heath would have been covered in housing had it not been for our determined, cunning and generous forebears, who outwitted the landowners step by step to secure the landscape for us all.

A great deal of literature confirms the fact that small family-owned businesses rarely extend beyond the founder of the business. This study explored and identified factors that helped to create a successful family business transition for two African American family-owned businesses in the San Antonio area. One family experienced working through a well thought-out succession plan that successfully passed the mantel from one generation to the next, while the other family experienced going through an unexpected, unplanned business succession that was also successful. Understanding the factors that help create a successful family business transition is difficult because there is very little scholarly research that has an in-depth focus on the African American family business. The research design used was a Phenomenological Qualitative Historical Case Study. The findings revealed that both families' success may be attributed to factors such as being raised by both of their parents and being taught family values, hard work, responsibility, and accountability. Self-preservation, the first law of nature, was taught to make them aware of the importance of taking care of self first, so they could take care of others. As children, they watched their parents at work, which gave them the opportunity to shape and mold their own work ethic with a strong family influence. Most of the children in both families were socialized into the family business and never worked elsewhere. Both families were very active in church and made the church the center of their social life. All of the family members had mentors and/or role models as a child, at school, and at work. The researcher concludes that it is important to note a plan for succession should consist of three elements, all of which must precede the actual succession by a few months. A plan for succession occurred in one case; however, in the second case, it occurred several months after succession took place.
