Christmas Countdown: Ornaments of the 70's

My family Christmas tree isn't going to win any beauty contest.  Admittedly, it's a hodge podge.  And we love it!

I have ornaments, both hand-made and store bought, adorning the tree.  Some of them my kids made.  Some, I made as a kid.

Every ornament has a story.  Here's the story on some of the ornaments from the 1970's.

These might have been older than the '70's, but I remember them from the 1970's as they hung from my Grandparent's tree.

Yep, I used to go by Ricky.  I painted this ornament when I was 11 years old.

1977 must have been the year for ornaments.

The '70's had this faux stained glass hobby thing going on which was metal frames you filled with plastic beads and melted in the oven to make them.  Apparently, they last too.

I'm not sure this wasn't more an 1980's fad.  The material was dough.  It hardened and one painted it.  I'm surprised it lasted all these years.
