My mom has had me hooked on ornaments since I was a small child. It started with sparkly Rainbow Brite bulbs, to scenes with movement and lights, and on to classic Hallmark keepsakes. I still purchase myself some Hallmark Keepsake ornaments - especially the Frosty Friends series. Brian and I also try to pick up an ornament souvenir on each of our vacations.
Here is a burro from our trip to Las Vegas this year. He is no nonsense and ready to carry your load.
My mom purchased this for me last year - It's a S'mores knitting a scarf. Hurry man! Knit before somebody eats you.
And one of my new creations - a mini-sweater. The sheep is made with angora, so he's realistically fuzzy. I love it right down to it's tiny little hangar. And unlike most sweaters I knit, the tree won't be complaining that the arm holes are too tight.
It's a great tree - a definite keepsake.
