Today's post is about our favorite ornament. I have so many favorites That it was impossible to pick just one. The above Santas are from my Nana's home and the roly poly was bought for my son's first Christmas in 1975.
Believe it or not but all eight reindeer and Santa Claus are squished into this Hallmark ornament from 1993. I have been collecting Hallmark Christmas ornaments since they first appeared in 1973. This one is my absolute favorite.
I am really getting into handmade nostalgic ornaments. This one I made for an online art group I belong to. The angel is very special to me. She looks just like my mom when she was very young.
This one was purchased at Vallaincourt Art in Sutton, Ma. and uses the same angel. I spent a lovely day with my wonderful friend Karen and got to see a perfomance of "The Night Before Christmas" performed by Charles Dicken's great, great grandson. It was a magical day.
This beautiful reindeer belong to my Grandpa and Nana and hung from their tree every Christmas . I am so lucky to have it for my tree.
The Charlie Brown Tree is new this year but has already claimed my heart. It brings back so many memories. Every decoration I own has a story and connects to the past. Thinking of the past helps to get through the present. A hope for a return to simpler times.
Have a wonderful weekend fellow Pinkies.
