Our collection of ornaments has grown over the years and many of them represent a memory or were given to us by friends. This Käthe Wohlfhart brewmeister (and a couple of miniature nutcrackers) came home with us from Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Germany.
This guard left his post at Buckingham Palace to perch on our tree.
A side trip on our Alaska cruise resulted in this ornament.
Closer to home, we picked up this moose while skiing at Steamboat Springs, Colorado. My granddaughter loves it because the moose jumps when she pulls his string.
Since we're both native Texans, we have lots of ornaments from our home state, too.
When my son was young, I did a lot of crewel embroidery, including these two ornaments made from kits.
My friend Nan created this ornament for me because we share a love of quilting.
And Sandra gave me a herd of candy cane hobby horses.
Add in a bottle of wine, some jingle bells, and much, much more and we have a one-of-a-kind eclectic Christmas tree full of memories!
I hope your Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, or other holidays have brought you peace and joy. Wishing you a glorious 2017!
