Mess or Masterpiece Chat

Boy, did I have fun with this! It tickled my funny bone to make a Christmas wreath using blue leaves, corks on a rope, an Air Force button, a purple ribbon, and a chain frame.

"Tiny tots, with their eyes all aglow, will find it hard to sleep tonight. They know that Santa's on his way..."
The Christmas Song by Lionel Richie

We weren't very tiny, but you can tell by the excitement in our eyes that we knew Santa was on his way! Christmas 1962
