I sent my sister a box of ornaments including these three that I "made". TamTam is staying home for the holidays and this is the first year she'll have her own tree to decorate.
I strung up the baby blue VW Bus because my parent's drove one like it for 18 months all over Central and South America when we were little- that road trip is the reason my baby sister was born in Argentina.
The model house belonged to my dad. He started putting together tiny houses when he was young and one of his childhood friends died. He made a little house for her spirit to live in. He never stopped making houses.
I hope that these ornaments will help my sister's children remember these stories about the grandpa they've never met.
And the "Elvis Lives" ornament?
Just 'cause. =)
