Favorite ornaments and favorite child

Or, hmmm,,, I should say "only" child.
Remember these spinners from the 50's? You put them over lights and the little metal spinny things spin in the middle. I have a bunch of them, they are my favorite ornaments.
Some of them have little melted plastic spots because the lights were bigger in the 50's and some of the ornaments got too hot. I have seen them recently reproduced from the vintage style of the 50's.

Back to my favorite son. This is before the band concert. How nice is that?

Ooooo I have those little spinners!
They were my mom's and hung on the the tree every year forever ... Until one day I snitched them from her stash of Christmas goodies ::giggle::

They now live at my cottage and hang from the ceiling fan pulls. The kitties sit below them, eyes fixed ... watching them spin.

I love vintage Christmas!
