Thursday Thirteen #6

It is Thursday Thirteen time again and I had a great time thinking about today’s list.  Ya know, some days this is really hard and some days it is very easy.  

13 of my favorite Christmas gifts I received when I was a kid:

1.  A beautiful blue and white ceramic carousel horse.  It had a gold pole and was decorated with feathers, fabrics and sparkled in the light. 

2.  A large piggy bank.  He was a cool looking pig!

3.  A black hills gold ring.  It was my first “real” piece of jewelry.  I felt so grown-up!

4.  Augie Doggie.  He is a brown and white stuffed dog.  I still have him.  Most of his fur is “loved” off, he has stitches in several areas and his tail is held on by a piece of yarn but I love him anyway.  🙂

5.  A dollhouse.  My sister destroyed it less than two weeks later.  Sad loss.

6.  A monoploy game.  I still have this as well.

7.  A chemistry set.  I was dangerous with that thing!  LOL

8.  A new blue bicycle.  I rode that thing everywhere.

9.  Rollerskates.  We lived on a big hill then and the first time I wore them I just about wore down the stop on the right one going down that huge hill. 

10.  Stereo w/ a cd player.  My first cd was ZZ Tops Greatest Hits. 

11.  A book of bible stories from my Grandparents.  I loved looking at the pictures.  My favorite story was of when Moses was born.

12.  Laura Ingles Wilder books.  I read every one!

13.  My name in spun glass.  That was so cool.  I was so upset when it fell and broke a couple years later.  I would love to find someone who does that and have another one made.

I could name a few more like a telescope, a pair of peacock feather earrings and such but I will stop.  LOL

  1. Hi, I definitely agree, sometimes TT is really hard, and sometimes it’s extra easy. It all depends on weather I’m inspired or not. I did a TT list too, it’s here: http://lifes-adventures.net
    Cheers!!

  2. That’s a nice list. I can’t remember many of my Christmas gifts: a bride doll, a Chatty Cathy, and one of those vixen-faced 1960’s Barbie dolls are all that come to mind. It’s lovely that you kept your old toys. I was rough on mine.

  3. Ahh, memories! I can remember getting my very first NEW Barby Doll (rather then getting hand me downs from older relatives). I think it is still in a box somewhere…

  4. What a great walk down memory lane. Pop on over and see my list.

    BTW – I love your blog style.

  5. I’m impressed! I honestly don’t remember most of the presents I got as a child, and certainly not enough to make an entire list out of. You must’ve been a very good girl, you got a lot of cool stuff! LOL

  6. I can’t remember many of the gifts I got as a child but I do still have the Monopoly set I got when I was 12.
