You probably don't remember....

...this ELF, unless you've had LOTS of Christmases (is that a word??), like me! I saw this picture on the web today and was immediately taken back to Christmas at my house many, many years ago when I was a little girl. We had 2 or three of these little elves. They were made of felt with hard plastic faces---and big, pointy ears. I remember loving to tuck their legs up under their arms! We also had lights on the Christmas tree that bubbled...and silver tinsel! Oh, wow, I think I'm really "dating" myself!! :0)

I always liked those bubble lights too. When I was little we had a white artificial tree with blue tinsel and ornaments. It was a popular color scheme at the time which doesn't say much for the time. ;)

When Kent and I were first married Mom gave us 3 of the red elves for our tree and they stayed on our tree for 43 years, last year I gave one to each of my children to sit on their tree for another 40 years.. thanks for a great memory
