Last week my grandma dropped by with a surprise for me.
I was excited just looking at the box.
She brought me her vintage christmas ornaments from the 1940's and 1950's
I almost bought some on ebay a few weeks ago but I had already spent my
allotted holiday decoration budget... and then some. So with a sigh I decided to wait.
And I'm glad that I did.
Hooray for Grandmas! Who can keep fragile glass baubles intact while raising four children.
Some of whom I know were quite a handful... Uncle Dave I'm talking to you...
But you probably don't read my blog.
And the grandchildren too! It's amazing any are left.
I considered hanging them on our tree for about 10 seconds.
Then I thought....
4 boys + vintage glass = not good
One of the boys said "But mom don't you trust us?"
To which I replied "Of course I trust you my dear. I just don't trust the things you throw down the stairs. And the wrestling matches, and the running, and summersaulting and jumping...
Need I go on?"
And he said "Good point."
So I put some of them in a big glass jar and set them on my piano.
I would like to get another jar (different shape), to put the rest of them in, but I already
mentioned the state of my holiday decorating budget... Next year. *sigh*
Thank you Grandma!
(Who I know does read my blog *wink*)
