We celebrated Christmas at my Mother's house so we decided to come home via Omaha to shop at Whole Foods. While lunching there (love their soups) we decided we needed to make a few other stops before heading back home, and am I ever glad we did.
We found a display of Christopher Radko's "Shiny Brite" glass ornaments in the vintage 1940's designs on sale at one of our stops, and we fell in love with them. Both my husband and I were born in the 1950s and have memories of growing up with ornaments just like these. Of course, over the years the thin glass ornament walls didn't have a good relationship with the wood floors and many were broken. We still have a few of the originals, which we treasure, but finding these just made both of us happy that we could get that vintage look again because of the availability of these new ornaments.
We found them in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors and can't wait for next year to put them on the Christmas tree farm's display tree. Every customer that purchases a tree gets to select a new ornament to place on their fresh cut tree, and I have a feeling they will like them as much as we do. They are magical!
Here is hoping your holiday season found magic as well!! ; )
Off to the studio to mix paper mache clay! Have a great week!
