Back in the 70's, when my children were in elementary school, I bought these paper cutouts to hang on my kitchen cabinets during the Christmas season; a cheap way to extend the decor all through the house. There were six of them, but I picked out the best to show you. I thought then, and still do, that the art work was better than average for such inexpensive decorations. I have no idea who the artist was because unfortunately, they are not signed.
I guess if I keep them another 25 years, my kids will make a bundle selling them on ebay!!
We went to a party at our Governor's Mansion tonight, for state employees. They are nice enough to include those of us who help to decorate the mansion for Christmas on their guest list. The food was great: shrimp, scallops wrapped in bacon, Thai egg rolls, crudite trays, Swedish meatballs and their famous cookies, all homemade. A choir was singing Christmas carols in the ballroom and the trustees were serving punch and tea. A very good time was had by all, especially our photogenic Governor and his lovely, vivacious wife, who never seem to tire of posing for photographers, both pro and amateur.
