Favorite Ornaments ~

Just a few of my favorite ornaments ~

From my maternal grandmother's nativity

My one true antique Santa 

I don't remember where or when I got this guy,
but I've had him for years and just love him

Occupied Japan Santa

My little Nativity that I got in first grade

Grandson Jake made this in 2012

Celluloid Santa lightbulb ~
that's Jake at age 3 to the left

25+ years later I still hang the ornaments made by my sons when young.  

Speaking of sons, my California son made it home this afternoon.  He was flying standby and thankfully made each leg of his flight.  It's so good to have him home!!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  
Pug hugs :)
