An angel from the sixties. My mom used to have her on our tree when I was a child. She gave her to me, and then my boys took turns throughout the years placing her on top of our tree. This year the honor reverted back to me! She’s a kitschy little gal–gotta love her choker and pipe cleaner arms, the gossamer cape and glitter evening gown.
