I’m in love with glass ornaments — the vibrant colors and delicate details make any tree (or wreath) more lovely. The old Shiny Brite ornaments are my favorite. They were only produced from the late 30’s until the early 60’s, but many people still have a few remaining on their trees today. Luckily, Christopher Radko has started to produce Shiny Brite replicas, complete with the old-fashioned ornament box divided into individual storage compartments.
Here are some Shiny Brite replicas and other gorgeous glass ornaments to help make your tree look sweet and lovely this year. (And here’s a great article if you want to read more about the history of Shiny Brite ornaments.)
