Christmas Ornaments

Hello everyone, I had previously confessed that my little camera simply stopped working.  As I hadnt had it for very long and it couldnt be repaired I was offered a new upgrade camera at a very reasonable price.  Can you believe that after taking only 6 photos with my new camera it slipped out of my hand and...it stopped working.  While I am waiting impatiently for it to be repaired I used my tablet to take some photos of our Christmas ornaments.

When my husband and I first started our lives together Christmas was a very big deal for us.  Many of our ornaments became part of a collection that we started 25 years ago.  This little tree angel is one of them.

My mother and I (mostly my mother!) spent many hours crafting ornaments for the tree.  She made several of these little hat boxes decorated with ribbons and little ceramic roses.

She also made many little satin cornucopias decorated with sequins and pearls.

Other ornaments were purchased in our travels. 

Some ornaments were purchased during a visit to Niagara-On-The-Lake.
I suspect that we bought an assortment of these birds for some craft project that never came to be.  I have been using them in the Christmas tree too.

My mother created several different butterflies on felt with sequins and beads.

The simple snow flakes were my contribution to the tree.

I had crocheted a number of these tiny bags about 30 years ago.  Originally each bag had a tiny ball of scented soap but now they are simply stuffed with cotton.  As we havent put up a tree for about 3 years unpacking the box of ornaments brought back many memories!

~Thank you for visiting~
