Do you have a favorite Christmas ornament?
Or maybe you have a favorite style?
What does it look like?

My current favorites are the Mickey Mouse ones I got in Disney World this summer.

I also love a set of snowmen I have that I painted about 15 years ago.


And my favorite sets to buy are the sparkly, colorful round ones.

I have a bunch of favorites - we have a tradition of buying a special one each year, so we keep an eye out all year long. I really like the one we got from the Charlse Schutlz museaum in Santa Rosa, and the silver Pooh one when Tristan was brand new, and the Pooh angel, and the silver Scandinavian ball that Erick and I picked out for our first married Christmas.

We also have a set of crystal stars and snowflakes (10 each, I think) that I really like, and several from my parent's travels around the country.

I love my Pig Chef ornaments - I have two of them but could only find the picture of one -

I added two new ones this year -

Of course Webster makes the tree every year -the one we have looks a lot more like him -

I also have a bunch of deep red glass balls -

I basically love anything that is sparkly! Almost every ornament on my tree sparkles... unless it is one that someone gave me as a gift. I will post pics tonight of my very favorites! One is an ornament that my grandmother made at least 30 years ago... probably more like 35.

I love the two new ornaments, Sandy - especially the woody with the tree on top!

It is a classic, Sandy.   Reminds me of the Vacation movies.

Easy answer...I gave my grandpa some sea shells years ago (I was probably 5 or so).  He drilled tiny little holes in them and strung them all together and made them into a Christmas ornament.  I always like going over there to see where they were on the tree each year.  After he passed away in 1996, my grandma gave them to me that Christmas.  I used to put them on the tree every year, but now have them hanging in the kitchen as a decoration.
