Aren't these the best ever! My great Aunt Catherine from New Jersey made me this set of Christmas balls back in, I think 1985. At the time she gave them to me (I hate to admit) I wasn't thrilled with decorating with them (not my style) as I was young and dumb!!! Today as I was going through some of my Christmas stuff I came upon them and to my delight......I loved 'em!! It was like finding a hidden treasure. Aunt Catherine put a lot of love into these ornaments and this year I am honoring her by using them on my dining room table. We lost her many years ago and I hope she knows that her creations are being displayed with pride this Christmas.
