Ornaments are a big part of our Christmas tradition… Every year, our mom gives each of us kids a new ornament – always something unique, and always something representative of our personalities or a certain memory. She even marks each of them with our name and the year so we can always know when we got them. With seven kids, you can image that our tree gets pretty full… Our mom says that the ornament-a-year idea isn’t just about the collection itself, but a way for us to have some-what “full” Christmas trees once we start decorating our own!
So, it’s no wonder that I always keep an eye out for the best of the best ornaments. For simple and elegant, to quirky and distinctive – as long as they have aesthetic appeal and a bit of wit, they are welcome in my collection!
