Christmas Ornament Show and Tell

Christmas Ornament Show and Tell

Jolanthe at No Ordinary Moments got all sappy this week as she decorated her tree.  It’s amazing how ornaments from years past can bring back such vivid memories.  So in an effort to share that sappiness, she’s decided to do “Christmas Ornament Show and Tell”.    I love collecting ornaments, so indulge me as I share in a moment of sappy with her, and you!

This first ornament is probably the oldest one I have of my own.  My older brother gave this little porcelain mouse bell to me when I was in first grade.

I love this ornament, first because it’s the Nativity and is what Christmas is all about.  I also love it because it’s made of  olive wood from Israel.100_5024100_5027 100_5025

The little glass dog in a stocking was a gift from my Mom when I was young.  The little gingerbread house has a spot in the bottom to insert a light, so all the windows light up and twinkle when the tree is plugged up.

Thomas’ aunt painted this lovely slate ornament for us our firs Christmas as a married couple.  The little rocking chair on the left belonged to a deceased family member, so the little ornament helps keep her involved at Christmas.
