Children love to paint and make a mess in the kitchen. And that is where this collection was created in the 1970's. While they spent a few Christmas seasons brought down from the attic for the annual holiday tree trimming, it wasn’t long before the grown boys decided they were too old for “that sort of thing.” And for years they have stayed packed in one of the Christmas decoration boxes. There are 28 in all comprising a wide range of holiday activities. And I confess to having painted one or two of them myself. Painted on both sides, they average 4-inches long, some shorter than that. Gold hanging strings attached. Definitely would add a bit of home-made cheer to an old-fashioned country Christmas.
