Hi Barbara,
Can you share your ebay link? I did not see it on your sidebar and I've looked before. Not that I could AFFORD any of these beauties! I know they'll sell for a lot...I went nuts last year on vintage pink ornaments for my little white tree....geeze I spent waaayyyy too much!

I love the czech ornaments the best, but they are all great! Thanks for teaching us a lesson (I think this has the same double meaning as in my native language). Have a great sunday!

That was a good primer on vintage ornies. You had a very good year finding them. I did pretty good this year, better than last. And I just scored a 6ft aluminum tree with the color wheel for $35!! So I guess it's been a very good year! xo, suzy

Beautiful! And I think the history part of it is so interesting. I knew that WWII affected how jewelry was made, but I didn't realize it made ornaments change their ways.

I started saving my broken/damaged ornaments to make wreaths- just put the broken part to the back of the wreath..

I bought some ornaments yesterday, even though the lord knows I do not need anymore. (I actually left a few behind! LOL)

But I want to see the junk pile, not just the keep pile. Ahem. :-)

Susan

Oh my goodness, you just made me feel 8 years old again! Thank you so much, they are beautiful.......... Your tree must be stunning!

susan

just lovely. i have a soft spot for shiny brites. i was wondering, could you take a long hanger and bend it so that you have a big v, and then insert that in the broken tipped one? so that the large body would hold the hanger in? am i making any sense? you know, kind of like a toggle bolt....

I'm reading, oohing, ahhing, and breathing a little heavier. What is it about those ornaments that makes us all so happy? They are beyond wonderful. Susan

Thanks for sharing your beautiful collection. I learned a few things and will have to look at my collection more carefully when I pull it out for Christmas. I have some of the WWII ornaments with the cardboard/paper caps and must say those are my favorites!

Where did you find all those lovely ornaments? I found a couple of boxes at the thrift store, but they don't care how they handle that stuff and some were broken...:(

Beautiful treasures!
