When I was growing up, I got to work in the family store. My grandfather owned a clothing store, and for awhile, my grandmother had a little "cove" where she sold fantastic yarns and these kinds of crafts as well as lovely women's ware (women's wear?).
.
One of the company's sent these craft samples in 1979. Ever after, they decorated the store's Christmas tree. The tree that I helped to adorn....along with all the other tinsel-y garlands that jazzed up the store each Christmas. (I can still smell the smell of that garland.) ((TALK about glitzy sparkle. Wooo!))
.
I just KNEW all those years of working would pay off!!! :)

Thanks, Aunti Cook!!

I wonder if anyone from the pool will send me a kickboard?

Very fun....I thought they looked familiar!

I'm not really sure how I will manage to continue through life without a tin man ornament exactly like that, Katie. I am dead serious.
