LOL - I was born a few years after 1959, but I definitely remember those boots! Hadn't thought about them for years, but that simple 4-word phrase transported me back in time...

Hey! No fair! *SNIF* I’m having a High Hormone day as it is, and am stressed out over Christmas, LOL!
Actually, that is a neat little story. I hand-made a lot of gifts this season, and I plan on doing that from here on out.
I love to make stuff (sewing, baking, crochet, etc.) and it’s fun to remember back to when you wanted to give someone a gift you had to MAKE one.
All of my childhood gifts were handmade. Rag dolls, doll clothes, doll blankets, a handmade crib and bunk beds from Grandpa, a wooden Noah’s Ark (also made by Grandpa, with cloth animals made by Grandma.)
I’m not all THAT that old, but so many kids miss this GIFT these days.
Thanks for the reminder as to what the Season is all about. Christ. Love. Giving (of yourself!)
