This could also be titled a blast from the past. I'm high on Christmas right now. I love this time of year. It brings back so many happy memories, and since having kids I feel like that only intensifies that feeling.
Every year when I unpack my ornaments there are a certain bunch I look forward to unwrapping. They are the sequined ornaments my mom made when I was a kid. I was always fascinated with them and I loved how they sparkled and shone. See... I was loving gorgeous shiny things from birth.
So I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite ornaments... they are quite vintage and well worn.
|I have quite a few of these pink ones, love the ruffled sequins.|
My mom had quite an attention for detail. These must have taken forever to make.
|The 3 Little Bears are my absolute favorite. I was really little when my Mom made these, but I loved to open them up every year and hang them on the tree. I actually have a special box I keep them in now so I can find them easily. They just bring back such happy memories.|
And now for some serious retro 1970's... Cue the disco.
So after decorating the tree I attempted to make some with my kids...
|Thomas kind of got bored after attaching a few, it is quite time consuming.|
|This took me about 30 minutes and its only the size of a golf ball!|
