It’s that time of year again – you know the one I mean…no, not the shopping, or the food or the filling out of wish-lists. It’s time for all the holiday television specials! Those classic stop-animation delights that have enthralled us since the 60s! My favorite has always been “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” with its band of misfits.
Burl Ives sings the song, Silver and Gold in that classic, and it’s always the song I hum to myself as I decorate my Christmas tree. With that in mind, I headed over to my favorite indie shops at Etsy, and picked out a few silver and gold trinkets to liven up your own holiday celebrations
Everyone needs a little glitter this time of year…
