Hello from GoldNoel

I am new to this forum or any forum! I love all things Christmas, particularly the ornaments. I bought my very first ornament in 1974 and paid $6.00. I thought that I had spent a fortune. I have asked for Christmas ornaments for my birthday and anniversary presents from family and friends. I can be down in the dumps and go read about, play with, or look online at anything to do with Christmas, and I will get in a better mood every time! My husband is wonderful about my "hobby". I have a German Shepherd named Heidi and a golden retriever named Noel who are pretty good about not breaking anything. We have had them for seven years and have only lost one ornament. I have to admit that a few of the ornaments have some "gentle" teeth marks from when they were puppies. I am looking forward to the forum!

It was an extra large Victorian Santa Claus decopage (SP?) ball. I bought it from a local department store in Austin, Texas. I still live near Austin. I have just started an excel spreadsheet to inventory all of my Christmas "stuff".

Welcome!

I, too, love Christmas ornaments. Hubby says if I get anymore our tree will fall from the weight. I guess it is time for a bigger tree. LOL!

Glad you are here!
