Why is it that Christmas from long ago seems like it was so much more calm, sentimental and romantic than the crazy holidays we experience now? I would love for a place, like maybe Macys, to be back in time for the holiday. For the merchandise, decorations, salespeople to be right out of It’s a Wonderful Life. In my mind, of course, it would all need to be black and white because, as a child, I thought there were no colors in life during the “olden days.” It’s fun trying to create the retro colors on these antique Christmas balls.
