I first discovered these Christmas decorations at a local consignment shop for $25 a piece. I was able to slowly assemble complete collections via Ebay, and you can still find good examples there, and on Etsy, usually at reasonable prices.
As I child, I would wait for white Christmases that never materialized. It almost happened one year; we got snow on December 23 and 70-degree-weather on Christmas Eve. Even when we travelled north for the holidays, there were only cold temperatures… snow always evaded us. I don’t need to crave snow anymore. My vintage Jean-Jacques Prolongeau ornaments always make it a glistening white Christmas.
