It has been so much fun to get out all the Christmas decorations this year. I put the tree up a week ago, but I am finally going to blog about it. I inherited some great ornaments from my Mom and Granny and now more than ever, putting up the tree is a trip down memory lane as I unwrap each one. The ornaments on the red background are homemade. My mom crocheted around glass balls and the mini ones are cross-stitch. The glass ornaments on the green paper background are antique from the 1940's or 50's. I love their unusual shapes. And the colors are so faded after all these years. They have a lot of character.
The next grouping of ornaments are all from my travels around the world. The horse is from Sweden. Santa in an airplane is from Germany. The Blue Delft Tree with the Windmill on it is from Holland. The mukluks are from Alaska and the little Asian girl is from Taiwan (I don't even think it is meant to be a Christmas Ornament, but I re-purpose stuff all the time, the Delft tree is on a key chain!) And finally, the little man is a Canadian Mountie from British Columbia!
