    I haven't seen this question posted....
    Who here collects ornaments? Tell us about your collection no matter how large or small.
    Is there a theme or is it whimsy? Name a few of your favorites or any you really hope to find. Where do you find your ornaments or do some just find you? How many do you have?

    I have a variety of Christmas ornaments. I do have a set of carousel ornaments my sister bought me one year, but overall, I have many different kinds of ornaments.

    I have many themed trees so I guess I do collect ornaments! I have a white tree with pastel lights and all different snowflake ornaments on it and a white tree with colored lights with nutcracker ornaments on it (standing next to my ever-growing collection of nutcrackers!) as well as a beach-themed tr

    Ok, where did the rest of my sentence go?? to finish that sentence: a beach-themed tree where we put all the beach ornaments we collect on vacations so I guess I collect snowflake, nutcracker, and beach ornaments!

    We give the kids a couple new hallmark ornaments every year for Christmas. We select the ornaments based off of what their likes and interest are. It's nice to look over the years to see how their likes, interests and styles have changed.

    If I see an ornament and it makes me laugh - then I guess that's what I collect! The most recent was I found is a burrito. My first grandbaby is due December 26, and when my daughter was first starting to show, we joked around about how it looked like she just ate a big burrito. So he's been burrito baby ever since! I couldn't pass this one up!
    I also have entirely too many nutcrackers (like over 100) - I should pack up a bunch & ship them to sugarmuffin to contribute to her collection!
    I would love to have a big enough house to have 2 trees (850sqft ain't cutting it!) so I could have the pretty / sentimental ornaments on one and the obnoxious / WTF ornaments on the other!

    We used to get the Hallmark "Our First Christmas Together" every year until Hallmark stop making the glass balls.

    All the ornaments on my tree are European blown glass style. They all aren't actually made in Europe, but those are what I have.

    In my house, we don't collect a certain ornament per se, but we do go get ornaments every year from Hallmark for the entire family. It's a tradition that we've done since we've been a couple and we continue to do it for the kids. My parents also do it for us as well. We've got many ornaments on our tree from there.

    I collect Peanuts ornaments and decor, specifically the Charlie Brown Christmas themed ones, not so much the miniatures or the Spotlight on Snoopy ones. And like Minta I try to buy my loved ones ornaments that represent something they did or liked during the year.
