Christmas Traditions

Decorating the tree as a family is one of our traditions. I especially love pulling out particular ornaments that I've owned since I first got out of college. Also, I participated in a couple of swaps, and that was great fun!

The ornament above
my sons and I made one year
from cinnamon dough.

I received this beautiful papier mache
box figure from Nina Mason, of Nina Mason Dolls.
It has exquisite details.

Thanks, Nina!

I received the wonderful folk art
doll ornament above
and below from JoJo Crow Primtives.
I love it so much! JoJo also sent some
fun fabric, and some stockinette and
some candles! Thanks, JoJo!

I purchased this little ornament below
from Megan Holloway. He is so wonderful!

My son made this paper blue bird
when he was young.
I treasure it!

A dollhouse doll I bought on Ebay above.

I've had the fairy above
since I graduated from college.
It was one of the first
ornaments I ever purchased.

My first year with my own Christmas tree,
in an apartment in Gorham, Maine,
I made ornaments from cornstarch dough.
I had very little money that year
because I was making $6,800 a year
as an educational technician.
I made about 20 and this is
the last surviving one.
My son "customized" it one year.
