Some Favorite Ornaments

Yum
Kat, Just a Beach Kat has inspired me to post about some of my favorite ornaments. That was like choosing a favorite child! But here are a few that sparked my interested this year...

We have a gold and white tree in our living room. My friend Zoe made ornaments like this one for Bob for the three of us. I love these ornaments because it reminds me of Zoe and our good times together!



Upstairs in the study we have a tree of ornaments that we have collected of all our travels. It is fun to decorate this tree and remember all the places we have been. This ornament is from the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Summer Games.



Downstairs in the family room we have a tree that we put all our family ornaments on. This ornament came into my possession when a dear PEO member passed away and we were invited to take a souvenir from her home. I chose this little ornament and a little plate. The ornament came from Italy when she traveled there.



This is on the family room tree, too. I like it because it was made by the four neighbor boys across the street. They are little urchins but this ornament reminds me that they are just doing what comes naturally for boys...



This is it for now... later I will post ornaments from our dining room and the kitchen trees. Bob has just pulled out boxes and boxes of Christmas stuff I didn't use and told me I needed to go through these and pull what I don't want anymore...
