Favorite Holiday Ornaments

Thought I would share some of FAVORITE Ornaments, hanging on our tree.....

This is my grandma Virgie, she raised me.... She passed away 8 years ago.. and to this day I think of her daily..want to call and talk to her about my life..good and bad.. and Thank God each night for blessing me with the BEST grandma on earth..She taught me many things about life and love and was wise beyond her knowing..She made us all these ornaments from the nursing home, her last Christmas here.

This is my favorite Humming Bird.. My grandpa Bill, who passed away 18 months before my grandma did LOVED Humming Birds.. I found this the year he passed away and it hangs on my tree each year.

This is my husband when he was 7 years old.. His mom made this from a panty hose egg.. Isn't it adorable?

Some fo these moms and teachers are so crafty!

All the ornaments my kids have made me, are my absolute favorites!

Who would of ever thought that a juice lid would be so precious to your heart?

The first ornament my husband gave me, over 20 years ago!

I think this was suppose to be a turkey hand.. turned ornament.. but I love it.

I LOVE this silverware Snowman!

So this tree.. Well I got it up.. and it is one of those pre-lite ones.. I have had it for years and half the lights did not work.. So I looked for a new one.. could not find one like it.  So I added lights to the parts that were out.. problem solved.. WRONG.. then the ones that were one to begin with, went out.. so I have had to take the ornaments off twice, and put new lights on again!  Sadly this tree will be seeing the trash this year, but It is still pretty and It won't ruin my Christmas! 
Stay tuned tomorrow.. I will posting some fun craft ideas for Christmas.
Have a great night!


  1. Love it! And I love the snowman silverware ornament. Have a great weekend!

  2. It's all so lovely and meaningful!
    A very merry Christmas to you and yours.

  3. I led that spoon snowman craft! Glad it's one of your favorites. I like the white tree. Sorry to hear it is hitting the curb.

  4. That Christmas tree is so much more that just a "tree". I love all the sentiment!
