Every Christmas my folks bought us kids a special Christmas ornament. My mom would cut tiny strips of adhesive tape and write my name and the year on it and adhere it to the back of the ornament. This glass Pinocchio was my very first; actually my dad bought this one from Marshall Fields (probably) when I was just four months old. I'm not going to admit to the year, but there's no denying it's definitely vintage today.
I'm amazed those legs and arms are still intact after these, uh, many years. A couple of my other annual ornaments have some damage, but this guy is tough.
By the way, I now buy an ornament every year for my daughter and write her name and the year on the back.
I'm linking to Mockingbird Hill Cottage to share my favorite Christmas thing.
