Christmas Stills: Day 2



My mom sent these to me some time after being married. The ornaments of my childhood. I just can't bring myself to get rid of them (even before I got sentimental). They might be the ugliest decorations on the planet...yet, I love them. That little guy on the end (far right)....you squeeze the sides and his mouth would open to reveal a hershey kiss. Never lasted long in our house.

  1. Memories are so fun. I have some old ornaments from back in my childhood too. My mom made them so they are very sentimental, but also very old. But I keep them anyway. Love the Christmas pictures too!!!

  2. My mom gave me all my old ornaments. One of them was from my great-grandma, hand painted by her. It's that same little mouse you have there except it's holding a poinsettia. It must have been a line of ornaments. And we had a few of those triangle mouthed ones, too. Hershey kisses, etc.
