Beautiful Holiday Ideas
There are lots of Christmas crafts books, which leads me to believe that there are LOTS of “old fashioned” (read: out of date) Christmas craft books in libraries. There might well be some nice little ornaments and things in this book. There also might be some really weird decorations that are not beautiful for contemporary homes! Submitter picked this one:
Is that Baby Jesus with the pink cheeks? For me, the best part of that picture is the man and woman cut off at the bottom. Don’t they just scream “70’s happy couple?” That’s quite a stone fireplace they’ve got, too (I’m sort of jealous of that, actually. I could make that work!) I’m really not a fan of those colored flowers above the woman’s head, but I guess they do match the colors in the Jesus tapestry.
My final questions for you about this book are:
1. Kid on the cover – boy or girl?
2. Do you think that lady cut (his?) hair by putting a bowl on (his?) head and cutting around it?
3. Is that Mike Brady in the second picture? Pair him with the lady on the cover and you’ve easily got Mike and Carol.
