December 8th

Christmas Countdown #8

The blowfish. The pink, glass blowfish. One of the oldest ornaments on my tree. One of the most delicate and carefully handled. And probably my husband's favorite. It was given to him by "Santa" when he was two or three years old. That would make it almost 45 years old! The blowfish always gets the best spot at the top of the tree, dead center. It is really pretty.

My mother-in-law went through a 'fish' phase in the 80s, also. I have about five other fish on my tree, none as pretty as this. Actually, most of them are downright ugly. I'll share one or two of them with you, also.

But blowfish is definitely pretty. And it wouldn't be Christmas without him! (or her since it's pink???)
