Truly one of the big, big days of the season -
|The 1st (and prettiest) White House ornament.|
the day the tree is trimmed. One can't have too many Christmas trees, altho I find myself limited to two at the moment - a tiny one in my office and the real one in the living room. I want one close at hand so I can enjoy it all day long.We've collected ornaments forever. There are tiny glass balls left from childhood, along with a felt bird (Girl Scouts in the 6th grade) and the purple Merry Christmas ball inherited from Dad. There are ornaments collected from places we have traveled - a flamingo (Florida), Chinese kissing fish (San Francisco), a gourd (Pennsylvania), red pepper (N.M.) and a cut-out of Texas.
|Some of these are as old as I am - horrors!|
|One of a legion of Santas - mostly old fashioned.|
|Made in Florida from the scale of a Gar Fish - honest!|
|Peace on Earth, Good Will to Women.|
