Ghosts of Christmas Past

Silver Blue: I remember this lighted cardboard Christmas tree being placed in the front window of our home in Charleston, SC, every year until we moved in 1980. Then, it was on my parent’s mantel, and then was passed on to me.  The little cut out stars were, at one time covered from the inside with colored cellophane.  The light, a simple night light bulb, illuminated the tree.

Silver Blue, who remembers making these in grade school. My mom was homeroom mother who crocheted all the “hangers”. We were given two small pieces of fabric and cotton balls, half of a walnut shell and half a wooden bead with a face painted on it. The fabric was wrapped around the cotton to make the pillow and the main body in the bassinet.  Egads. That was 40 years ago.
