Faces of Christmas Past

Here are a few close-up photographs of some of my vintage Christmas decorations. A few of them (the pine cone elves, the cloth Santa, the cigar-chomping plastic Frosty) are identical to ones that my parents had when I was a kid.

The mouse reminded me of Topo Gigio (from The Ed Sullivan Show). I picked him up in Suite Lorain in Cleveland a few years ago.

Click on each for a super-sized version so you can see some of the craftsmanship that went into the making of them.

The one Santa looks like a mug my Ma had for years, which she painted herself. BTW, thanks for the plug!
