I am very excited today to show you my 2013 ornaments in all their glory:
Sorry about the picture. The garland is long so I tried to get it as even as possible, if you look close enough they are all there. I can’t believe I actually did something I said I was going to do. LOL! It is probably my only New’s Year’s goal of 2013 that I accomplished. Better than nothing!
I also wanted to show you my little ornament tree:
I bought it last year to hold my stitched ornaments. I know I will have to upgrade or add a new one in a few years but it is great for right now. I have a small house so skinny trees are the best.I don’t have lights on it so I have more room for my ornaments. I will need every branch on this tree.
I have been thinking and I am going to see how many ornaments I can make in 2014. I’ll have my 12 and then I’ll have extra for gifts or whatever I want. I’ll keep you posted.
Since we are on the topic of ornaments, I am curious to know what your favorite ornament is and why?
Here is mine,although I LOVE all my ornaments I am partial to this one:
This is one of my oldest ornaments given to me in 1974. I was 3 years old and my friend, Doug, who lived next door was 2 years old.We ( or should I say our mothers) exchanged gifts at Christmas. He gave me this bird’s nest( made by his mother of course). The verse with it read: It is an old Swedish tradition that a golden bird’s nest and egg on your Christmas tree will bring you health, happiness and good fortune in the New Year. This I wish for you.
This sweet bird’s nest still has a special spot on my Christmas tree. Doug and I are still friends today although we don’t see each other too often. He lives out of state with his own family.
Hope to hear about your favorite ornament! I think every ornament has a little story to it.
Happy Christmas Stitching!
