A little tree tour!

Our antique glass ornaments from our families. 
My Santa Claus phase! 
Then my snowman phase. 
A few whimsicals. 
Of course, a Nutcracker representing the annual family trek to the Nutcracker Ballet. 
And finally, my favorite ornament of all.  This is my angel from my tree as a child.  It was given to me by my grandmother.  My grandmother is who I inherited my love of all handwork from.

What a joy - to open the computer and visit your blog and admire your beautiful Christmas ornaments. I find it hard to pick out one or two, because they are all very special and for sure bring lots of memories to you.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
Greetings from DK,

Beautiful ornaments. Isn't it great to be able to have some from previous generations.

All your ornaments are beautiful--- but the last one "Little Angel" is adorable and ---because it was given to "you" from your grandmother-- little "Miss Angel" is a "special" treasure! Carolyn

All your vintage ornaments are so charming! I remember decorating the tree when I was younger with my Dad, he would always pull out the "special ones" and put them on the tree. There was a particularly lovely pink one with stripes, it was my favourite. It was his mother's, I think he may still have them even today.
