Morning Glory is hosting a fun picture linky today called Christmas Tree Treasures to let us have a peek at your Christmas tree ornaments.
"You are invited to post as many photos as you want, of the special ornaments that you hang on your tree each year. Share with us why they are special to you. Maybe they are family heirlooms, things your children made you or you had as a child, or special theme collections -- whatever it is that you put on your tree that brings you pleasure each year as you decorate it. "
Please join us and share your favorites.
Here's a few that I love to hang, although these do not cover everything.
I started collecting snowmen ornaments quite a few years back. My mom gave me this one. It's one from my childhood that hung on our tree then. It's older than I am and would be considered antique. Hmmm, does that mean I'm an antique too? Anyway, I just love him.
I also love pinecone ornaments and this, too, my mom gave me from my childhood. So it's also antique. This is the biggest one and then I've got a gold one, a blue one, and an aqua colored one that are a bit smaller.
This is the one I got for Dave and I when we were first married. And the snowman is one from my kid's ornaments. I get them each one every year. There is no theme or rhyme or reason for their ornaments, it's whatever strikes my fancy for them. They each got one of these cloth snowmen, each is a different color and silver threads make it look like snow glistening when the lights are on it. I'm sad now that I didn't get myself one because I just love these little guys!
These next four snowmen are special because my sister got them for me as a gift one year.
My son got me a couple of these snowpeople one year for Christmas out of his little allowance. You know that's gotta mean it's ultra special!
These two little angels I love. The crystal one I have no idea where she came from. She just appearead one year. The country angel was one I helped to cut and paint her dress for a lady who hired me to do that for her one year for her craft business.
There is my tree. Not a designer tree by an long shot but it's my memory tree. It's got my kid's ornaments all over it and little memory ones, and I wouldn't trade it for a "perfect" tree. In fact looking at it in the picture, it seems sorta empty although in "real life" it looks really full. Hmmm, I think I need to go get more snowmen or something. :v)
