    I found a tiny tree just like this before Christmas. Japan, 1950s with mercury glass ornaments and mica glitter. I LOVED it. BUT I couldn't keep it. See a customer of mine (also a friend) had a really tough two years. She boycotted Christmas last year, but told me she was thinking about it this year...maybe a tiny Christmas...not tree though. Well dang it, I found tiny Christmas for her. I was right it was perfect. She was immeasurably happy, I did the right thing DANG IT!!

    Well I grumbled about it to a CW person, just sniffing about taking the high road...totally being a big old baby!

    She found one on ebay and sent it to me. How stinking nice and sweet and touching and wonderful is that???? She likes her privacy, so no names here, but it is hands down one of the nicest things that anyone has ever done for me. I just wanted to share the story...and how unbelievably cute my friend and this tree are!

      Aww, we'll probably being leaving ours out until the end of the month. Even we put them away I want to open up some of the other containers and boxes and take pics to send you. Do you only collect Japan Christmas items in that certain era?

      Friends like that can be hard to find keep this one. In her trying times she thinks of you. Those old Christmas decorations I have from my mother in-law she is a beauty I think I'll keep her also. But like everything else packed away.
