Memories of Shiny Brite Ornaments

I remember well the ornaments on the family Christmas tree growing up. My favorites were the delicate glass ones handed down from my grandma, or new ones bought that looked like grandma’s and great grandma’s collection. I get to revisit them as we decorate our tree each year. The yellow, red, and blue ones pictured here are all that is left from generations gone by.

In doing research for the last chapter of the 3rd Nash Sisters novel, I rediscovered those ornaments and their story. It was a delightful find! Memories and emotion came racing back at seeing the variety from the 20s through the 60s.

I hope you enjoy reading this and uncovering memories of Christmases past.

Writing non-fiction about leader development, mentoring, training, and coaching managers has spanned most of my career. Leadership in the early childhood education field is where I practiced my skills for more than 25 years. In retirement, my fingers on the keyboard began to write fiction. The stories that come from my head and heart to the keyboard are historical fiction about family, friends, and the resilience of people. Check out The Nash Sisters Novels available on Amazon.

  1. Leatha–thanks for posting this. Our house burned down in 2000. We had to replace everything, including Christmas decorations. Ann and I hit “antique” stores in places like Reidsville and found boxes of shiny brites. Finding those old glass balls made Christmas for us. Of course, we still hang them.
