Old 1950's top

Christmas Attic Treasures

Stuck under one of my trees is an old top, snow globe , my old 1950's old doll and a child's story book . The snowglobe was property of my Mil, given to her by her son in 1956. It says "souvenir of Chicago Il" The doll was my last doll from "Santa" , the book a gift from mom from the 1930's, and the top I purchased a couple years ago for $4.00, because it reminded me of one I had received as a child. Sister Karen and i would play with it on the dining room linoleum floor. this one still works fine, according to Jeremy and Sean. Jeremy said he had it spinning a couple minutes! The red boot is something I made this from a good memory I have . Mom had my brothers boot over 60 years and painted it red and added cotton to the top of it to look like a Santa boot..actually it was once a cowboy boot Don wore as a little hung under moms porch light every Christmas that I can remember. I decided to make some little red boots for some of the grandkids this year.
