I can remember angels with angel hair, glass balls, the bubbly, different colored lights, tinsel, icicles that my mother wanted my brother and I to place, one at a time, on the tree and, when she wasn't looking, we'd throw a handful at a time on.
When I was in high school, I worked in a 5 & Dime.....in the toy department. Looking back, it was so much fun. While I was doing it, I was just "passing time".....(and now I WANT IT BACK!)
This cream and sugar set is soooo one of my favorites. I don't even use them other than for display....too afraid I'll drop one on this tile. Most things, old or new, I use but...not these!
I couldn't capture the true pink of this depression glass cake plate that came from Woolworth. It has such a pretty design on it and I use it every chance I get!
The FIVE AND DIMES had more than just toys and Christmas decorations. They had lovely pieces of glass and many other things. Many of these have now become heirlooms and I'm so glad I have these pieces from so long ago; especially because my mother loved them. I love the pretty vase and the heart shaped candy dish. I have some more things from the FIVE AND DIME that I want to share with you but those are for another posting...another day.
