Here are some of my favorite Christmas ornaments.
My Dad and I found this ornament in a Christmas shop many years ago. He bought it for me. He and I were very close and enjoyed many long talks. He died 13 years ago after having Parkinson's. I'm lucky to have had him for a Dad, and this ornament reminds me of happy times. This ornament isn't fragile, and it should last a long time.
My DH and I bought this ornament in a department store when we lived in Tennessee. Each year everyone in the family would choose an ornament. The guys chose cars and hiking boots and boats. I always chose fruit or flowers or something wildly colorful.
This ornament is from the gift shop at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts. I think it was made in South America. I have several. Isn't it pretty?
I think this angel is so graceful, and I like how the white shape stands out against the green tree.
