The Shiny Brite Ladies

The Shiny Brite tree is all decorated. I lost count..I will estimate that there are about 300 Shiny Brites.

This year Lillian joins Jo, Rae and Grace.  They are all Shiny Brite ladies whose ornaments adorn my big  tree upstairs.

The purple ones belonged to neighbor lady Grandma Grace and then she sold them at a garage sale.   Lucky for me..they are the ornaments that began the Shiny Brite Addiction a long time ago.

This is one of the indents that Rae at The Old Weather Vane gifted to me several years ago.

Jo who lives just down the road from me..gave me these last year.

This year my best friend Susan was clearing out some of her Mothers belongings..Lillian liked Shiny Brites too and after her death Susan gave me a box.

This is the first year they have been on my tree.

So these are for you Lillian.  When I look at them I will remember your smile and your laugh..they are a perfect addition to my tree.

I think it looks just wonderful!   All the Shiny Brites that I have been collecting over the past 25 years finally have a proper home:)

    Beautiful!

  3. When I see your ornaments, my family (mom and dad) had nothing but shiny brites for decorations. All of them got broken eventually. I would like to have preserved them now that I know about yours.
