Ornaments

I have seen some beautiful Christmas trees in blog land this year!  I have tried to get a good picture of my simple tree, but the lighting never seems right.  

So I thought I would show some close up shots of some of my ornaments.  Come on in!













We have been collecting glass ornaments for years.  When ever we travel, we try to bring one home.

"Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree,
Your gay green dress delights me!"

Welcome Home,

Wow, Penny. Your ornaments are gorgeous! Every one I saw, I thought, that's my favorite, until I saw the next one that is!

Good Morning!

Your home is so lovely.

Just lovely standing there so beautifully by the patio doors. Not even tucked into a corner...so much better. Beautiful ornaments, too. I love the skates.

Your ornaments are so beautiful, Penny! The colors are just so vivid. I think your tree looks great!

The skate and the santa are my favorites! Those immediately bring me back to to my childhood. They are so pretty, all of them. Isn't it frustrating not to be able to capture the tree as it is in person? Your home looks lovely, Penny :)

Bonnie said...

This is my kind of tree. It's so shiny and beautiful.

April said...

Ooh...I really love the peacock ornament! What a neat tradition you have, Penny...and it gives you a tree full of warm memories.

Dawna said...

Thanks for the tour around your pretty tree! I have been struggling with getting a good shot of my tree as well....you have captured its beauty though. I love that big clock behind it as well. Have a happy week!

Kelly said...

I think you captured a great photo of your tree! All of your old fashioned ornaments look great on it.

Your tree is beautiful and those ornaments are fabulous. I love the rooster!

Angela (Cottage Magpie) said...

Oh Penny, your tree looks lovely and your home is lovely, too! And, funny, I was just going to ask what the color was on your walls -- it's so perfectly cheery and creamy and wonderful. But then I found the FAQ page and answered my own question! Love that color.

Merry Christmas!

Beautiful ornaments and I'll bet when you get them out you remember all the places you were when you bought them. I love ornaments with a little history.

Penny, you have some beauties. Watch out for your Santa if I am around. And, I love the plaid bell.

I can't get a get photo of our tree either. It seems like I've taken a thousand, but none I love as of yet.

Jojo said...

I love being able to see close ups of the ornaments! Beautiful tree.

Sherri said...

Penny your tree looks lovely and I love all your ornaments!

Adrienne said...

I love glass ornaments - yours are so pretty. And fun! I have a few but would love to add more to our tree. Your tree looks great - I still need to decorate mine. It's up, with lights, and that's about all so far.

Penny,

Your house looks just beautiful, as I knew it would this time of year.

Your pictures on your blog page look like they are out of a magazine.
