Favorite Ornaments

I have been sitting on my couch making jewelry and staring at my tree. At this point, I have so many ornaments that they don't all fit, so I have to be selective. Here are some of my favorites..

Sparkly Paper Angel from preschool. It has lasted a really long time..it must be the 1970's glitter keeping it together.

This pink and green doll is made with ribbon and a clothespin. It is from elementary school.

These pups were at Saks and I ended up buying 20 of them. My tree has little Millie's dangling from the branches each year.

One of my favorite needlepoint ornaments and on the left a felt tree that is super cute.

Another favorite needlepoint, a cute goldfish in water.

One more needlepoint ornament

This little dog looks like Millie running in the back yard. I know I am easily amused because it makes me laugh when I look at it.

My Grandmother used to make these beaded ornaments. I have a handful and they are all whimsical and very detailed.

I love this little hanging decoration. I tried a new stitch for the first time and

I finished it in record speed.

there is just something magical about hanging an ornament that you have done so with for almost your whole life, isn't there? it's almost like you get to remain forever young- if just for a moment :)
