Throwback Thursday - Christmas Angel Chimes

Do you remember Christmas angel chimes? These little chime sets were brass. They had lots of little pieces that needed to be put together each year. (I loved doing this as a little girl!) Once you put the set together, the candles provided heat that caused the little angels to spin.   This was an annual part of Christmas during my childhood - I still have my angel chimes.   

I found a magazine advertisement for the chime sets, although I recall them being sold at dimestores and local stores.  

I also found a video to share with you, showing the chimes in action (below).  Do you remember these?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Book Spotlight and Giveaway - Maury C. Moose and the Facebrook by Adam Baker

Book Synopsis:

Fresh off his adventure where he saved Forest Noel from the evil G.R. Inchworm, Maury Chris Moose is back and facing another struggle. When a new social media site invades the forest, Maury, Mikey & the rest of the gang learn an important lesson on how to use social media and cell phones. Find out what causes two best buddies to get into a fight and follow Maury as a flip-flop-wearing bug teaches him what is takes to be a pal. The second book in the Maury C. Moose series continues its fun use of parody, puns, and rhymes to teach kids the value of appropriate use of technology. Join Maury and friends and find out what can happen when we jump to conclusions and do not pay attention to those around us. This chapter book features the perfect mix of humor for adults and childhood whimsy to create a story that kids and parents will love reading together.

About the Author:
Adam Baker likes pretzel bread, sleepwalking & lists that include three examples. He first wrote a published story at age 3. The story was titled "Batman & Ghostbusters" and by published we mean that his mom stapled a few pages together and called it a book. This helped create a love for writing that led him to create the Maury C. Moose Series.
