Antique Christmas

I decided this year to give my mother and sisters antiques for Christmas (since that is what I would like...Isn't that funny that we do that?) I know that on Christmas morning when they find my humble gift under the tree they are going to say:

What the @#$% is that?

Anyway, on my trip to get the goods at my favorite stinky antique "plaza" I found vintage ornaments. I have always loved the look of the older ornaments,

some with cracks and discoloring.

I looked up my box of 'Shiny Brite' ornaments online and WOW!

And then I came across this lil beauty for $2.50. I (for some reason) have always wanted one of these milky glass hands to adorn my blings.

Merry Christmas to those of you who get to enjoy my antique "whim" and to myself who got some special Christmas goods.
