One year in the 1980s Macy’s had a penguin tree with all wooden ornaments in their Christmas decorations department along with their other six or eight themed trees. It seems like I must have some kind of receipt or credit card record around to show the date and price, but I haven’t been able to find it. You’ve already seen one of the ornaments I bought that day, the green wooden airplane, and I’ll be posting the other couple dozen of them in the next few days. These wooden “ornament” ornaments are some of my favorites.
