Back to Christmas!

I took these photos at the Smithsonian American History Museum when we were there last spring. It is the cover of the Sears catalog from 1956. I just love these pictures! The retro tree decor and toys- I wasn't even born then and it still makes me feel nostalgic.

My mom collected Madame Alexander dolls just like this one when she was a little girl.


I love the looks of wonder and excitement on these kids' faces. To me it captures all of the childhood magic of Christmas!
