Ornament Anecdotes: Day 2

This precious ornament is not even hanging on my tree.
It sits in an egg cup, in my china cabinet.
Behind glass.
Two years ago I bought a whole plastic box of Styrofoam apple ornaments at a summer garage sale, because I saw this tarnished treasure nestled in the mess.
25 cents well spent!
The apples eventually went into the trash (even I couldn't think of a creative use for them!)
This beauty went into the china cabinet for safe keeping until Christmas.
But has ended up living there permanently.
I can enjoy it all year 'round,
long after the other ornaments have been put away in boxes
and hauled down to the basement.

Somethings should not be packed in a box for eleven months out of the year

Wow, you have a great eye. I would say those apples found their way to the right spot, and so did this beauty. I remember my grandparents having these, too. They could be from my grandparents tree. Lovely memories.
