truly i believe ornaments make a great christmas pressie because not only are they pretty, but they're memories.
here's some pretties i got this year from my dearest friends: Claire's sister Kate sent me the pretty reindeer (i had fallen in love with it at Very Fine House), the blue jay and intricate egg are from Faiza who loves her Toronto Blue Jays (a reminder of our shared love of baseball!), the carved owl is from joel who wrote on the bottom "maxham 2010," the heart of gold is from sandra, and the post card to the north pole is from Rhianne.
sweet Erin sent us the most perfect vintage "first christmas" ornaments to remind us of our first christmas as husband and wife.
my girlfriend Jessie gave us this beautiful carved snowflake ornament as a wedding gift.
truly, i have the kindest friends!
speaking of ornaments... tonight me and husband decorated his parent's christmas tree while they are out of town. i fell in love with the ornaments max made when he was just a darling boy. I love that his mama kept them and kinda wanted to kidnap them for our tree. Alas, since that isn't very christmassy, i snapped photos to show you!
max has one older sister and he said every other year they'd get to hang up the angel tree topper-- it was a big deal. Guess who got to do it this year? yup... it was pretty special.
indeed, i'm an ornaments girl completely.
