Another Spo-fan request: show us your ornaments!   I can’t deny this Spo-fan anything; what he asks I do….

Our christmas ornaments are a sundry of lovelies, precious and kitsch, plastic, wood, and glass; a hodgepodge of different types accumulated over the years.  There is nothing ‘thematic’ about our ornaments .I try to get a new trinket whenever we travel.  It is a work in progress without any long term vision.

Somebody didn’t do their research. Only male cardinals are red. This made in Korea ornament has two male birds making a nest together.  Naturally it was a must-have-or-perish item.

Out of whimsy several years ago I got the Teletubbies. I think they are sort of stupid now, but every year they go up on the tree nevertheless

I have several glass ornaments in the shape of aloha-style shirts. Lovely!

Harper has a few of her own. 

 

When all the ornaments are up, we hang the icicles and wrap the tree in ribbons.
