star What is your favorite decoration?

Do you have one with special meaning or just one that you really like? What about one that you unexpectedly found and just had to have?

My special one is a snowflake made from glass beads and wire from 1949. My parents brought it over here from Holland when they immigrated in 1954. It is so fragile now I leave it in the box and just set it on the shelf.

My step father threw all of our family ornaments away so we have been building the stash back up. Every ornament that I have has a special spot and/or story. Now that my husband is learning to like Christmas again, it gets more special every year. The tree toppers, the pear I made in 2nd grade (I'm 50 now), the hippo ornaments and the list keeps going on and getting bigger. I guess the "Betsey" is one of my favorites because my mom spelled her name the same way. It's a little girl praying and it's called the Betsey, from Betsey Clarke.

My mother had these small bells and I can remember tying them on to handles and putting them all over the house. I don't know what happen to the bells.
I do have my parents very old plastic angel with a light in it that graced the top of our Christmas tree which she will be put up in a very special place in my home.

My favorite ornament of mine is hard to pick because I like all my decorations. But I have a beautiful angel figurine that my dad gave me for my birthday a few years ago.
She is very special to me though she's not real Christmassy looking, she is sitting on the shelf with my other Christmas items.

I can't believe you have one of those! He was one of my favorites and my ex-husband kept him when we got divorced. I've been looking for one ever since!

hmmm, not sure really.

But I bought two great new decorations yesterday when I went Christmas shopping. I had a nice Santa tree topper and a wreath that it fabric, with a snowman sat on it like a swing. I'm putting it on my kitchen door

My favorites are my Kneaded Angel ornaments. I absolutely love them! I know that they aren't really Christmas ornaments, but I love to hang them on my tree.
