Echoing Their Joyous Strains


Dear Fern,

I wanted to show you these precious little angels—my most beloved and prized Christmas ornaments that I have had since I was a child. Their little metallic loops broke off long ago so they can no longer adorn our tree but I love and treasure them nonetheless. They stand about one inch tall. I don’t have any information about their origin or who made them. When I was young, I used to imagine that they came to life at night and would fly around our living room. When I look at them now, I can still feel that magic. I just love their sweet faces! I think they were my very first peg dolls!

Merry Christmas!
