Shiny Bright

When I see these old Shiny Bright ornaments 
at flea markets or thrift stores, I usually pick them up.
But I don't use them on my tree,
I use them to decorate around the house.
They remind me of my childhood.

Merry Christmas!

I can see your house at Christmas will be merry with these big beautiful ornaments! (I've never seen these:) that your Christmas may be joyful and bright!

I love these old-time ornaments. Mom still has a glass filament angel that tops her tree each year with many of her antique ornaments. To this day, I regret not picking up the same angel at an antique store years ago.
Thanks for sharing
Merry Christmas

That's a great idea, Rebecca! Wish I could do that, but I have three rambunctious boys and a cat and a dog and a husband - that rarely can control their limbs {not to mention someone else in the house that bumps into walls sometimes}.

Beautiful ornament.. I wish I still had some of the old balls from when I was a kid. Love the bokeh... how did you do that again. I need a private lesson!!!

I like the old fashioned ornaments also. Some really haven't changed too much still.

Merry Christmas. I hope the New Year brings you a very nice one!
