Some faves...

Tonight after we put O to bed Morgan and I decorated the tree. Hopefully we've placed things strategically enough so Owen won't be pulling breakable ones down. I think we left 1/3 of them in the boxes! These are some of my favorites. Some of my other favorites just didn't light well so I couldn't get good shots of them.

This has to be the oldest ornament I have. I made this in preschool!
This star is also rather old. I remember picking this out somewhere when I was a kid. I still love it's uniqueness.

I have two of these little mushrooms. I don't recall where they came from but I love them. I bought a couple for my SIL too. I love sparkly glass/glittered ornaments!

Every year when I get this bus out it just makes me smile. I don't really know why. It's just a cute little bus. Reminds me of kids and teaching and such. And it's made of tin and sort of looks old.

Your ornaments are so pretty and unique Heather! I wish I had some that were from my childhood too. You got some material there to make a wonderful little mini album about your ornaments :)
