☂️Elves in an Umbrella - this is total Christmas kitsch. Many years ago, I don't even know when (I would guess the 60s) my Grandmother bought one of these for each of her daughters at the farmers market.  It is a little tinsel wire umbrella that hangs from the ceiling.  In the basket sit 3 elves holding a light bulb. I do not remember a Christmas in my childhood where this was not hanging over both my Moms and MomMom's kitchen sink.  It is totally tacky and obnoxious, but it holds a deep memory in every family Christmas of years past.  When my parents re-did their kitchen there was no longer a place to hang it and it was passed down to me.  This gift actually brought tears to my eyes.  Not sure my lovely wife particularly likes this piece, but she understands what it means to me and it hangs over our kitchen sink every year!
