My Favorite Christmas Decorations


This was made by my Mother-in-law 25 years ago
My Mom gave me this to me a long time ago
My Son when he was 5 years old
My daughter made this at school 1993
my daughter bought this for me is NYC
she went there with her school

My 11 year old tree
I always liked this tree but it has seen better days....when it was young!

This makes up my Christmas tree full of old precious memories!

A tree full of treasured memories is always beautiful, despite it's age.

Sentimental ornaments are by far the best!

I love it when people put memories on their tree instead of just balls and glitter. That make it more beautiful to me.

How wonderful to have a tree full of the memories of your children, things they made with their own little precious hands! And your mother-in-law's ornament, it looks like one you would buy in a store, not homemade!

Thanks for sharing your Christmas tree with us, always love when the tree tells you lot of stories instead of being one taken out of a magazine :o)

It's not necessarily the tree that makes the holiday, it's the ornaments with all their hidden memories!

I have a nostalgic attachment to many Christmas ornaments and some decorations around here. There's something about opening the boxes from the attic and seeing the old familiar things. My mom has some that take me all the way back to my childhood.

Some of our Christmas ornaments have nothing to do with Christmas - like a glass coffee pot, but they spell Christmas to me.
I loved your decorations - thanks for showing them to us.

Hey, our tree is newer, but it's full of really old ornaments, which is totally cool.

That makes Christmas trees special: the memories that go with the ornaments. These are truly priceless. And you can create more new memories as the years go by.
