I thought I would share some of my tree ornaments with my boyfriends, since all y'all are so damn far away. And these are different ornaments from the ones I pictured last year.
First up, a "prize" (as Dr. Spo calls them) from a boyfriend (you know who you are). I wanted to get a pix before I opened any of the boxes; they are full of chocolates! And you KNOW how much I love chocolate (hormones, ya know).
First ornament, Snoopy popping out of an egg. Talk about mixing the seasons! This came from one of spouse's uncles, who died in July at age 89.
A deceased cousin of mine made this about 50 years ago; she made it from an egg shell and added beads and ribbon and the deer.
A pink crocheted pickle, from a deceased member of my now-disbanded knitting group. Apparently it is a German tradition. Who knew?
Again, with a nod to Spo, here is MY Bronner bulb with my name on it. I purchased this in the early 80s from a co-worker at the time.
A pussycat made in Indonesia. I forget who gave me this one.
Meredith's bell; she LOVES to bat at this ornament to hear the sound it makes. And NO ANGEL gets its wings either! Bwhahahahahaha!
This is the oldest ornament in my collection. It belonged to my paternal grandfather, and it came from Manchester UK when he emigrated here. My sister has a green star just like this one.
A (plastic) chocolate moose! Bwhahahahahaha!
The green and white tree skirt (see above pix) was crocheted by a now-deceased co-worker back in the late 80s. Man, there are a lot of dead people in this entry! ;-)
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL MY BOYFRIENDS EVERYWHERE!
AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PETER!
