While bringing our Christmas decorations up from the basement, I realized we have several boxes of ornaments, which seems overwhelming. I package them by category, the glass balls, the antiques, the handmade, and the store-bought varieties. I don’t put all of them out every year; I think it depends on the mood and the tree. I wanted to share with you today a sampling of some of the ornaments I treasure most.
I got these ornaments from my mom when I was age one, two and three. I guess that means they are antiques, right?
I always thought this pearl angel, which I’ve had for over ten years, was so delicate and pretty.
This set with the felt drummer boy and his drum is one of my favorites in the my collection:
This mixture includes various ornaments I have made over the years:
That’s just a small sampling of the ornaments in our collection. Dave’s favorite ornaments are the glass balls that make the tree shine, but I like those of the handmade variety. Don’t forget – look forward to an ornament swap here in July 2010!
