While I do goth-up most of my holiday decor, some things must remain the same as when I was a kid. Certain traditions, a few foods, but mostly, the special ornaments. I treasure my small collection of Christmas tree decorations made by my mom when I was little, way back in the early 1970s. She gave them to me when I moved out after college. Here are a couple faves...
|A Winnie-the-Pooh decal Mom added to a blown egg. So fragile! |
All the other egg ornaments she made have broken.
|Totally psychedelic partridge in a pear tree. |
I didn't even understand what this one was as a kid.
|Slightly multicultural Santa Claus. It's because the wood was a dark color, |
but, as a kid, I figured this was just our hip Santa.
