Top to bottom:
1. My replica Tucker car, given out in 1988, on release of the Lucas/Coppola movie "Tucker: The Man and His Dream." Great movie, great Joe Jackson soundtrack album. I shot this holiday vignette on top of my dusty piano.
2. Antique, chipping off paint, ornaments, I probably bought at a garage sale. The backdrop is an unfinished painting.
3. Nearly every year of my career at Lucasfilm, I was gifted unique ornaments at Christmas. This wooden angel is one of them. For some reason, he is carrying a watering can.
4. I've been a major Mad Magazine fan since I could first read and have always loved this Alfred E. Newman ornament. It wasn't until after I took the photo, I remembered Alfred somehow lost one of his hands a few years ago. If you look closely, the ornament looks strangely like ex President Reagan.
5. More antique ornaments against a fabric backdrop. The piles of fabric I have oozing out of every corner of the house are crying out to be made into something.
