Favorite Ornaments

Our tree is decorated with all glass ornaments, that we have collected over time.
I can't seem to get a good photo of the whole tree, but here are a few of my favorite ornaments.

Every Country French decorated home needs a rooster ornament, don't they?

And I love this stocking, it has the prettiest colors on it.

Do you hang candy canes on your tree?

Welcome Home,


  1. Your tree ornaments look lovely Penny. Have a great day.

  2. those are very pretty! yes, candy canes! this year we used all blue ones :)

  3. I have a rooster on my tree too! I don't hang cc's on my tree anymore, I have them in a Santa jar for the kids. I love your colorful stoking too. Have a great week! ;D

  4. Your ornaments are beautiful. I LOVE the rooster! No, I don't hang candy canes on the tree. If I do have candy canes I put them in a decorative cup. It's wonderfully Christmas-y at your house. Beautiful.

  5. That rooster is so Provence. I love it.

  6. Yes, you must have a rooster on your tree. He is so handsome.

    My mother used to hang candy canes on her tree.

  7. No candy canes on my tree. Personally I don't care for candy I don't buy any. But I think they are colorful on the trees. Your rooster ornie is very cute. Haven't seen one of those before!

  8. Those ornaments on your tree are really pretty-very colorful!

  9. Hi Penny... Love your ornaments,, they are so pretty.... I used to hang candy canes on my tree when the kids we little,,, looking at yours I should start hanging them again...

    Merry Christmas

  10. The stocking ornament is pretty! No no candy canes here! We haven't even put one ornament on our tree and I'm not sure we will this year. It looks pretty with just the lights.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!


  11. Cute ornaments. You know I love the rooster. I used to always hang candy canes on the tree. My daughter even asked if I was going to add them. Guess I should keep that tradition going.

  12. I love the jewel like colors of the stocking and rooster, and I just plain love the rooster anyway:>) I just voted again, didn't realize we could do it more than once!

  13. Hi Penny,
    I have been having a problem too getting a good shot of the tree, so I haven't posted one. I am going to try again tomorrow. Your glass ornaments are lovely, I love all the color in them.
    I hope you are feeling better.
    Big hugs, Elizabeth

  14. Your tree looks wonderful and I love your glass ornaments. So pretty. Hugs, Marty

  15. Love those glass ornaments! There are so many different kinds now and they are so colorful!~Hugs, Patti

  16. O, I love glass ornaments, too. I think I have a rooster hanging on my tree that sweet Beverly at How Sweet The Sound sent me a couple years ago.:)

    No cc's on my tree..they all go into Peppermint Bark. :))

    I will go right now and vote again..I didn't realize we can vote every day. Good good luck.
    And, gosh, being at 5th is good, too.
    hugs, bj

  17. Hi Penny! What pretty ornaments and you know how I love that Rooster ornament!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  18. I think I now need a rooster ornament!
    No, I don't use candy canes...I did years ago, but I keep scaling back. This year I eliminated my garland, pretty soon it will be just lights! LOL!

  19. Penny,
    That stocking ornament is so pretty...Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  20. I love your ornaments - especially the rooster. I haven't seen a rooster in my shopping for new glass ornaments. I tried to vote for you when you first posted about the contest but I had trouble getting in and then when I did they wanted a lot of personal information to register and I wasn't comfortable giving it to them. Didn't know what to do so I just left without being able to vote. Don't know if I did something wrong.

  21. Haven't seen a rooster orny before but sure do like yours.

    I just voted but as Adrienne said the site sure doesn't make it easy. Now that I'm registered I'll try to vote daily tho. Anything for a pal, LOL!


  22. These are so pretty! I love seeing your Santa collection, too! We don't have a 'real' Christmas tree but my sister was talking about stirring her hot chocolate with a candy cane...hmmmm...sounds yummy! ♥

  23. Glass ornaments are beautiful...especially the rooster! Registered and voted memory isn't always the best...but will TRY to remember to vote for you some more...Love the iceskates and greenery BTW...very festive!!!

  24. What bright and shiny ornaments! I suppose this is your first Christmas in your new home. Have a merry one, Penny!

  25. hello dear, I'm here in the D.C. hotel room looking out at the Capitol with snow and a brilliant moon, very pretty.

    I've only just seen about your injury very, very sorry. A rotator cuff tear is very painful and I hope so much you will improve soon and not require surgery. I wish I was nearby to give you some help! Bob and I send get well wishes your way............and so hope you are feeling better for Christmas.
    Your decorations are beautiful.

    Love Mary

  26. Yes, candy canes are a tradition! My daughter was over the other night, I had not put them on yet-waiting for my grandaughter to put them on, and she couldn't believe that I had left them off. It is funny how little things that you don't think about being a tradition really sometimes mean the most.Merry Christmas, hope your shoulder is mending well.

  27. Super cute. I love them. Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!
