My favorite was hard to pick, cause I saw so many books I had as a child...brought back wonderful memories. However, item 360161300741, Christmas Ornament ANGEL DOLL Gauze Wings 1950s looks just like the ones that my Grandma and Grandpa had on their tree for years and years. Forwarded item to my sisters and brothers, too. They loved seeing it. Thanks for the Memories...I signed up for your store newsletter, and will definitely be following your blog, too! blclcc1@charter.net (Lauri)
