Sunday Stuff.....

A blurry blue Santa is still hanging on through the new year. Our decorations went up late so we will probably not take them down for a week or so.

A blue crown on a questionable character.  Is it a nutcracker with those teeth biting down?  Is it a soldier or a santa?  I think the creators were confused about this one.

The green pine cone ornament is truly an antique from my wife's family collection.  In the 70's I bout the mushroom, tree and the red roofed house and they are replicas of the original antique glass blown ornaments of the 40's.

A blurry view of another one of the replicas, snow on an acorn, alongside a newer smaller glass ornament.

Another replica ornament.  The metal caps on these older ones are still a lot different than the newer ones made today.  It isn't such a pretty ornament but the early antique ones were not necessarily that pretty.  They had color and the shined and that made them magical.

I will close down the blog with this newer small tree with packages for it's base. We are warming up today and then going to go back into the deep freeze. We will just have to appreciate the one degree above freezing and move on for the rest of the week.  I work at school with the janitorial staff on Monday.  

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my post.  One more day and 2013 will be.

Always fun to see your individual ornaments. I wish we still had some of grandma's ornaments from the 40's. We are at 28 this morning, and that is plenty cold to us...the cats are sleeping in a heap this morning!
Hope tomorrow goes by quickly at work.

My goodness those are alarming teeth on that Santa or whatever it is!
