a bird and a unicorn
I'm using a little creative liberties with my camera critters this week, hope you don't mind. This little bird ornament was a set of 6, I think, that was given to my parents when I was small. My dad had a camera store and one of his customers was an art teacher (I believe) and he made, and gave them, to my parents for Christmas one year.
Another year he gave them a set of unicorns. As far as I know these are the only two left, and each year as I hang them on my tree I am momentarily swept back to my childhood and our artificial white Christmas tree decked out with red lights and red ornaments and few happy birds and unicorns.
