For my first Rednesday I want to show you a few of my treasured red ornies and tell you why they are so special to me...
First is my little pitiful worn felt Santa, I made this little guy my first Christmas with my Hubby, we were married at 18 and times were tough, the first year in our little apartment we decorated with home made ornies and a few purchased at Wool-Worth..how many of you remember the old 5 & dimes, TG&Y and Wool Worth? My first job was at Wool Worth, but I digress...I made this little Santa 49 yrs ago and just can't part with him, dirty face and all he is hung on my tree every year since.
This next one is my favorite glass ornie, it is hand blown and was brought to me from Germany when my oldest Son came home on leave when he was Stationed in Germany in 1985, it has honors near the top of the tree so no little hands can touch it.
Last but not least this little guy is 30 yrs old, he was my BB's first Christmas ornie...and he still hangs around the tree every year.
Well that is my Red for today hope you enjoyed my first attempt at Rednesday.Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas and please remember our men and women of the Armed Forced who are giving us the freedom to Celebrate this special Holiday and are not with their families this year
