we received some new christmas decorations from my mother in law this year. one box said "very fragile and 1930's mercury glass reindeer", he was wrapped in several layers of tissue paper another box and more cushioning. i was a bit hesitant when i saw the wording and all the packing as i can be a bit of a klutz at times. i should have taken a photo of all the packing, may help to remember how to repack! inside was the cutest, tiniest reindeer i've ever seen. i'm going to have to get the whole story from polly, but this was something that steve said he grew up with, and i think it's a wonderful addition to our holiday decor. i've put him in a glass jar with some batting to keep him safe, and just recently added the bow to dress it up a bit.
isn't he cute. the close up picture came out the best. may have to invest in a better camera as it is so difficult getting good interior shots in our house without using the flash, then the photos are just-yeh.
