The other day I got a gift from my cousin Leann!
Ten Shiny Brite ornaments all wrapped up in tissue paper nestled in a box!
One of the first things I did was to make a note card that described each ornament so when they make their way to the tree I get them back in the right box. They will be called my Leann ornaments! They are just perfect!
The snowmen and carolers are probably the most rare…and the turquoise color is hard to come by. The design may have been made for only one year possibly two.
I am not sure if there is a list out there of the year certain ornaments were produced.
I should take a photo of every different design I have and in what colors…perhaps that will be a good blog project for December. Heck yes it will keep those December I hate shopping blues away!
I have collected Shiny Brites for about 25 years, last year I counted the ornaments and I had 586… I have purchased a few myself this summer so the number will be well over 600 ornaments this Christmas. I am still “thinking” about what I will do this year…I have that ten foot tall tree…and I bought a new tree in the after Christmas sales…thinking that a seven foot tall tree is tall enough and I would showcase different Shiny Brites every year… oh well I have two more months before I HAVE to decide.
