My most treasured Christmas ornament. This was always on my grandmother’s tree (minus it’s protective enclosure) We helped to decorate every year, and in our WOW state of new and shiny fantastic-ness provided to us via color TV and advertisements, didn’t care for or appreciate these old things. Indeed, we couldn’t wait for the big, gaudy, thick tinsel garlands and satin balls to replace all those delicate items. And then the boxes wandered into the basement and were destroyed by time and carelessness, before I was old enough to understand.
