My Ornaments

Well, I wanted to show some of my ornaments. Some have sentamental value to me. I wanted to do this for a while, but I just figured how to take the picture with out it being fuzzy. You have to stand back and use the zoom. I was very excited when it worked.

My blogging activities have been curtailed by the planning for the Christmas festivities. I am such the blogoholic, that I will fit it inbetween my cleaning, laundry, wrapping gifts, still decorating the house, cooking some items for the Christmas Eve dinner, which we are hosting this year and hanging with my kids.
This is made of metal. I like the tin looking ornaments. It gives a homey look to the tree. It also looks like it was handmade. I know it was mass produced, but I can dream:)

This one is from Jason's parents. They had this on their tree since probably the 60's. I like it. It looks like a baked cookie.

Another tin looking ornament.


This one was my Grandma Millie's ornament. My Dad's Mom. She gave her ornaments to my Mom when she stop putting the tree up. Around the time we starting growing up.



This ornament was Jason's Grandparent's. They used to put this on their tree since the 40's. When I was at the Christmas Store, there was a tree decorated with ornaments like this one and it said it was a polish themed tree. Jason's family is 100% polish. So, I am guessing this is a polish themed ornament.





I like this ornament, because I like colorful fish.




This ornament is based on the Fabrege' Eggs, that were made for the Czar's of Russia. Since I am 25% percent Russian, I had to get it




We got this ornament at a garage sale, for only a couple of bucks. It is a snowglobe ornament. Kind of cool, huh?

I hope you like some of my ornaments. I enjoyed posting them and remembering the history of some of them.

Now, I am going to do a little bit of blogging and then start on my list of chores.

Great ornaments - I love putting up our ornaments, because I get all sentimental about it too. My mom gives each child a new ornament every year - it's so much fun to look at them
