A friend Tammy posted: Hangin' with my Uglies--about Christmas ornaments--the cherished ones. I love homemade ornaments from kids... from anyone actually. I'm stealing Tammy's idea and posting my own ornaments, but I think I'll call it, Hanging with my Beauties...
Here's the oldest ornament I have. I was 17 and worked at Ben-Franklin in downtown Ferguson. A co-worker made this for me. I feel terrible because I can't remember her name now. I can picture her face though.
Next are various handmade ornaments from my children. Casey's hand is the base for this Santa:
Jessica's thumbprint made this design:
Rita created this with an upside down heart. The pom-pom stuck on one of the eyes cracks me up:
I'm not sure which kid made this one and I'm surprised it hasn't turned moldy. I don't know what is inside all those cloves:
The next two are more of Jessica's:
Rita was a little crafter way back. She sewed this Santa by hand. You should check out her site on Etsy or her Egabrag Crafts blog.
HO HO HO, Merry Christmas!
