Here's a little background on my title....Jocelyn over at Canadian Needle Nana was reminiscing about Christmas and trees and ornaments. I mentioned that my family had an aluminum tree with a color wheel. She hadn't seen a color wheel before...so let's begin our trip down memory lane!
A color wheel. They can still be purchased...but beware, anything that begins with the word "vintage" usually comes with a high price tag. LOL
This is exactly how our tree looked.
And if it was set up correctly, this was the final result...
For those with a yearning for the vintage, for the low, low price of $300, this could still be yours! LOL LOL LOL
My parents had one of the latest Polaroid cameras, the type that the picture popped out of the camera. You would shake the picture and it would develop in your hand. Unfortunately, the pictures don't last forever. Baby Sis has taken quite a few of them and had them put on photo paper.
Here is one of my favorites. Me, Baby Sis, and Baby Brother in front of our Christmas tree. The color has faded, but you can still see the sparkle of the tree.
I look at this picture and realize how little we have changed. My brother still has the crooked smile, Baby Sis still squints her eyes when she laughs, and my chubby cheeks are still chubby when I smile. LOL
So I leave you with memories of times past, love of family, and the excitement of children at Christmas. I hope that everyone has an amazing weekend. Be kind to one another.
