Pink Saturday again ~ this time our sweet hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is asking us to share a favorite holiday decoration. I have TONS, but it is easy to pick my very favorite.
Me when I was 5 back in 1960 playing with my favorite Santa.....I still have him today...pictured below.....
Daughter and my daddy made the little wooden Rudolph one night while DH and I were at a party and my parents were babysitting her. She even painted it all by herself! I always display them together as they both bring back such very special memories, one from my childhood, the other from my daughter's.
The entire "tablescape" my mother designed for that wonderful blonde wood coffee table was all made of styrofoam ~ not a very good choice for an inquisitive little 5 yr. old with itchy hands ~ and sadly, dear chubby Santa is the only surviving piece. The little sleigh and reindeer were made of very VERY thin sheets of styrofoam. Dear Mother never scolded me when I would accidentally break yet ANOTHER reindeer neck. She would just bring out the glue, then she tried broken bits of toothpicks, then straight pins, and lastly large amounts of red ribbon to camoflauge the sordid business. Eventually they were tossed.
Oh, how I would dearly love to find duplicates to go with my little treasured Santa. Please let me know if you ever spy any!
Please visit Beverly and all the other Pink Saturday participants here today. I'd love for you to visit previous posts of mine so that I may share our home with you this holiday season! I'll be making the rounds to visit you all soon!
