Saturday Snapshot – Some Favorite Ornaments

on December 19, 2015

I have been collecting Christmas ornaments since I was a little girl. I took pictures of a few to share here.

We love to get an ornament each time we travel somewhere. Also my children have lots of special ornaments that they’ve gotten over the years, too.

One of our favorites is this Charlie Brown Christmas tree one — you can press a button and hear Linus speaking about the true meaning of Christmas.  
If you know us, you know that Disney is one of our favorite places!!


Above (l to r): Tiffany bulb from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a Joan Walsh Anglund one I’ve had since I was young, Empire State Building globe that lights up, and an Irish cross we got on our honeymoon.

Eiffel Tower from Paris (another favorite place!), “Beth” – one of my four Little Women ornaments, Disney (again!) and the Disney Cruise ship, and Hershey Kiss Carolers from Hershey Park.

Tree on the left is the children’s tree (artificial) filled with all their ornaments. Tree on the right is the (real) family tree.

Happy Holidays to all who celebrate and Best Wishes for 2016!

Saturday Snapshot is hosted at westmetromommyreads.com.

    What great ornaments. I like the Charlie Brown ones. Takes me back. I had a wind up Snoopy many years ago.

    I love hearing Linus relate the true meaning of Christmas. So powerful and so simple.

    I bet it makes you happy to look at these ornaments each year.

    I used to collect ornaments every place we traveled. When my children left home all their ornaments went with them.

  6. Carol says:

    I love your ornaments. We have a lot from places we’ve visited, too.

    I love the ornaments! I should really take some pictures of mine since, with the kids around, I never know which ones won’t make it t to the next year!

Let me know what you think!
