Ornaments with Hair


The little girl on the phone was always on the shelf in my bedroom, I think my grandmother gave it to me - I dug it out and brought it home with me a few years ago - that was it, had to start collecting more - the frenzy of that collection wore off but I still bring out a few at Christmas .  Most of them are Napco ornaments, made in Japan, they were a big hit in the 50's and 60's.  When I opened the box today, a couple of the girls had breakage and had to be glued - guess I better do a better packing job when I pack them back up!



They're cute, aren't they?

I'm linking up to Rednesday because I have lots of red items in my blog today -and there's lots more over there - check it out!

I'm also linking up to Vintage Thingie Thursday again this week.

  4. The little carolers are just the cutest!


    NO RED?

    Imagine a world without red
    For either a robin or sled:
    How drab it would be
    No scarlet to see,
    But only grey shading instead!

  12. Oh how I love those. I had a set of three like the dark green one in the second photo. I won them at my elementary schools fall festival when I was little. On the way home I dropped one and broke it all to pieces. I was sooo upset. My great uncle gathered all the piece and sort of hob cobbled them back together. He was my hero! Over the years I guess they got thrown away:(
