Ornament Anecdote: Day 21


A blast from my past. A pressed styrofoam owl with felt and gold trim details. My brother and I each got one for Christmas in the early 1970s, when we were maybe 7 and 8 years old. My mother sometimes bought us ornaments as stocking stuffers. I really should have written the date on the back of this one. My mom probably paid 19 cents for it, but now it may be worth at least 10 times that. ;)

I remember owls as being very "in", in the 60's and 70's! He is very cute!!!
Drop by for "tea" if you get a chance!

Yes, he's a real blast from my past too. This one looks quite psychedelic, man!

You are too funny. Love how you presented it, too. Very "eye catching." But I really love the clothes pin ornaments. These speak to me. I have looked for these clothes pins and they are NOWHERE to be found, at least not in Kansas.
