My five ornaments

December 11, 2010

Not counting lights or the star, my tree has a total of five ornaments on it…

There are two of these paper dala horse ornaments that I made a few years ago with a paper mold that mysteriously appeared in my house.

My friend gave me this bird.  I’m not really sure it’s even an ornament, but it does have a hanging string so we’re using it as one.

My sister hand-sewed (and embroidered) this snail because she is extremely talented and way more patient than I am.

This was my favorite ornament when I was a kid.  I took it from my parents at some point in college.  They probably didn’t know until now.  I’ve always loved gypsies with striped socks.

And then we have a bunch of these mushrooms.  I’m counting them as one ornament.  We bought them to use at our wedding.

And finally, the star I bought in Mexico many years ago.  I call it the death star because the points are razor sharp (honestly, it’s kind of scary).  I didn’t realize until this year that it would work well as a tree topper, but it actually does.

This post is brought to you by Katie’s active effort to avoid studying…

    If the gypsy is returned promptly, the rightful owners promise they won’t ask any questions or contact the authorities.
