Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Ornaments.............

One of the fun things I used to do every Christmas season was to make ornaments. When I was working I made one for everyone in the office, I did it for quite a few years. Most of the ones I did for myself I have given to my daughter Laura. Some of them though were done many years ago in ceramics class. I have not put all of them on the tree this year because I will be giving some to my granddaughter. That makes room for me to make more. The glass balls I did several years ago, I gave the best ones as gifts. I remember a cardinal was on one and a Chickadee on another. I don't have pictures, maybe I can get around to doing some more.

Some have been purchased. The dog "Bo" is for the Obama dog but it looks just exactly like our sweet Bodi when she was a youngster. Different breed but you would never know. Now I will look for special ornaments that mean something to me. I will also, with luck make more.
Meanwhile I have been collecting snowmen and santa's

I don't know what these little bears have been doing through the night but look at the little beggars.

I also have a collection of angels, the plate is one of the things I did in ceramics all those years ago. I must say they all lasted very well. I will take pictures of the ones I am giving away to my Granddaughter. When I have enough blog followers I may do a giveaway of some of them too.

Hi Janice, you have a lovely collection of Christmas ornaments and collectibles. I think home-made ones always make the most special gifts. I'm a little late putting mine out but these have made me want to get cracking this week.
