Little Becca and Brother Mark
This was taken at my Aunt Marge's house. She often had our family Christmas party at her house. I LOVED her aluminum tree!! It had a color wheel, and I thought it was just about the coolest thing I had ever seen!!
I bought a 4 ft. vintage aluminum tree at a yard sale a few years back. I don't have a color wheel (well, I did have one, but haven't found it since we moved! :)
We do place the tree on a vintage rotating musical stand though!

    Hi Becca,
    Memories; don't you just love them? Especially Christmas memories. My first tree when I got married was a little aluminium tree. It ended up in the window of the jewelry store where I was working one Christmas. It was very pretty with jewelery all around it!
    Thanks for the memory!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    Hi Becca,
    Love the photo of you and your brother:) Very sweet. Your photos from the Rockettes show are so much better than mine. Glad you enjoyed the show.

    Christmas JOY to You.

    What a cutie-patootie you were, Becca!! You even matched the tree! That looks exactly like my parents tree, except they had the blue balls & the color wheel! I want a silver tinsel tree, but wow, do they go high!! Maybe someday I'll luck into one at a garage sale!!

    This sure is fun!!!

    Big TX Hugs,

    My Aunt had a tree like this when we were little. I didn't like it back then. I thought all Christmas trees should be green. I would love to have one today but they are usually too expensive. My Aunt used royal blue balls and she had a color wheel too. You were so cute in this picture.
    Hugs,
