A Glimmer of Christmas' Past

I have been fortunate to have been given a number of precious ornaments from my Dad over the years. These are the ornaments that I hold my breath while unwrapping!










Don't you wonder how something so fragile and beautiful could have lasted so long? Passed from family to family--these baubles have seen many, many Christmases, at least a half-a-century worth.

Amazing.

The old ones are the best. And yes, It would be wonderful to 'see' what those ornaments have 'seen.'

Wow...how special that they are family heirlooms! We don't have any handed down from either side, I'm afraid, so I'll just enjoy yours vicariously. :)

I saw the word 'vintage' in your title and I had to come check it out. I LOVE everything old. And I too, wonder how things so fragile can last?

So pretty! Nice work!
