New addition to my collection



I'm not much of a collector, but one thing I have always loved is vintage glass Christmas ornaments. I have one Christmas tree entirely dedicated to them.



This last week, I found a box of vintage Shiny Brite ornaments like I've never seen before. They are children's ornaments and have sweet little characters on them, such as lions, giraffes, bears, etc.



Though they aren't in the best of shape (a lot of the mica is flaking off), I love them nonetheless. And they were a good price at $8/box of 12. That's less than $1 each. Can't beat that.







Do you have a favorite ornament collection?

Those are so sweet! I don't collect ornaments. Im too...OCD. The tree must match. I love the look of random and kitschy, but I have nothing to start from.
