I found this wonderful little star at an estate sale this weekend. I am guessing it is part of a Christmas decoration. I do believe the crystals are glass, not sure about the blue in the middle. Does anyone recognize this from any memories? It is missing one of the small crystals, I don't think that takes away from it's charm.

Kara, Tyler, and Tom
Tyler and I drove to North Carolina to catch a flight to Atlanta, we were late getting to Atlanta, due to weather, so we missed our Atlanta flight. After standing in a very long line, we were rescheduled to fly out the next morning at 9:30 a.m. At first we were going to get a room overnight, but anger and worry about getting back to the airport in time made us decide to stay in the airport. I am very glad we did, we were told when rescheduling, there would be no other flights we could catch, I just couldn't believe that. So, later that evening my son checked the flight board, there was a flight leaving for Seattle, (where we were now headed, instead of straight to Alaska) at 10:30 that night, it was just before 10:00. I went to the gate to check if they possibly had any empty seats, what she told me was very confusing, we were booked on that flight. I don't know how or why but we were glad to get on it. We arrived in Seattle just after 3:00 a.m. Our scheduled flight to Alaska wasn't until 2:00 p.m. We really didn't want to wait that long so when someone arrived at the gate around 5:00 a.m. we got our tickets changed to a 6:00 a.m. flight (after paying an extra $50.00 to change the ticket!) Finally, we arrived in Alaska around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, tired and hungry. We were suppose to get there 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night. Better late than never! Tom and Kara picked us up at the airport and took us to a delicious and much needed breakfast!
