These ornaments could have been taken right off our tree when I was growing up. I think we had one like every one in the picture.

Avon Boot Perfume Bottle

I got this for Christmas one year, I must have got it from a friend or classmate. I don't remember what the perfume was like at all.

Noel Fork & Spoon

This was hung on our front door every Christmas. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a giant plastic fork and spoon, right?

My aunt had flocked "velvet" reindeer like these that she put in her window each Christmas. They were cute!

Bucket of Christmas Candy

I am too young to remember this candy but apparently every year my older brother and sisters would get a big bucket of candy each for Christmas. That tradition must have been stopped when I got older because I don't remember getting a bucket of candy. The can was for sale on eBay (empty) and you can see a bucket in this old Christmas photo, taken in 1967. I am the sad looking girl looking down at my younger sister.

We had a couple of ornaments like this on our tree when I was growing up. I think my sister still has one of them.

Candy Tree

My aunt had a candy display tree like this one. The box says "crystal tree" but it was plastic. She put it out every Christmas on her dining room table. I think she usually had jelly candies on it, the kind coated with sugar.

Remembering Our Childhood

So it seems I am not the only person out there blogging about my childhood (not that I ever thought I was). I got an email from Tim telling me about his blog where he too reminisces about things from his childhood. It's a cute blog, you should have a look here.

The Little Red Caboose

I remember this book. I don't know if my brother owned it or if I got it from the school library, but it's familiar.
