Every year, I look forward to hanging all of my ornaments, because attached to each and every one is some kind of memory, or a warm, fuzzy thought of the sweet person that gave it to me. I took a few shots of my favorite ornaments to share with you. Do you have any favorite ornaments? Where/when are they from, and what do they mean to you?
I bought this Swarovski "P" the year Dan and I got married (after Christmas for 50% off, of course!!) I also grabbed a ton of other initials for friends that I knew would be getting engaged/married in the near future to give as a little 'congrats' gift. I'm always thinking!
Next is the Hallmark Barbie and Ken ornaments. These were the toppers on our wedding cake back in October 2005 ;)
Lastly, these are ornaments made for us by others. Its funny that Dan and I both have one. What's better than a ceramic ornament with your childhood head decoupaged on it? Not much, my friends!
I could mention many others, and what they mean to me... some Hallmark ornaments my mom passed on to me from her mother, my Nana Hibbard, who bought each of her 4 daughters a dated ornament each year ...multiple ornaments given to me at holiday family gatherings from cousin Moe ...a handmade angel ornament created out of a teeny, tiny terracotta pot from Michelle... They are all very special ;)
