Baby Boomer Babbling-er-Musings

I'm from the baby boomer generation. I have a mop of white hair, courtesy of my gene pool. And a botox-free face that sports frown lines in the forehead and around the eyes. Love handles instead of a waistline. Can't say I'm exactly crazy about any of these old age indicators but I accept them with grace. And now I've lived long enough now that I ponder on a lot of things, new and old.

While roaming through the Home Depot this week, I came across a lil' 2-foot aluminum Christmas tree for only $9.98!  I knew immediately it would be adorable sitting on the table by the window of my canned ham, the 1954 Aljoa Sportsman.

Tiny Retro Aluminum Tree

I found a few loose Christmas items to surround the tree. The little vintage TV is one I found last year, but didn't get it packed away.  The musical/moving carousel was a bargain find recently at Goodwill.  Santa in his airplane sings "Let's Fly Away" as the propeller turns and flashes several Christmas messages.  The red and white blocks are reminding me to get it in gear, as there are only 31 more days of Christmas joy!

Next mission, should I decide to accept (and I will!), is to find itty bitty retro Christmas ornaments for the little aluminum tree!

Merry Christmas to all 
the Happy Campers!
