These two look different sizes in the photo. One is further back, but they’re the same size, and except for the color of their scarves, they’re identical. The white scarf is decorated with glitter and the face paint is slightly different on the two. I bought both ornaments at Macy’s, but not the same store, and not the same year. In fact, I bought them four years apart, the red one in December 2002 at the Eatontown Mall in New Jersey and the white one in a wild shopping spree in Macy’s Herald Square in November 2006. Wait until you hear that story. It’s a doozy. Notice that in these four years, the collection grew by about 128 ornaments. In the four years since then, I’ve added almost 450 more.
