Tis the Week before Christmas


Some years ago my friend Shirley started giving me beautiful Christmas ornaments for Christmas.  She picked them with care so that they reflected what I happened to be doing at that time.  I enjoy getting them out of the box each year to put on the tree.  If I am carefull I should have them to remember our times together for years to come.  The school bus reflects the 20 years I drove one.



This is one of a set of three flowers in little pots.  They reflect my love of gardening.



This little bird is one that I chose myself because we love to see the birds at the feeders in our backyard.



This little Irish Snowman was chosen by my Husband's relatives from Scotland that was purchased in a Christmas Shop in Niagara on the Lake one summer when they were visiting for our oldest Son's wedding.  Our geneology is Irish hense the sentiment.   I have many more but maybe I will save that for mosiac Monday.

LOVE the Irish snowman ... I have to HAVE TO find one. That is darling!
All your ornies are beautiful, isn't it fun to refresh your memory of them as you put them on the tree each year?

Merry Christmas ~

I love all your Irish ornaments!! We have several on our tree too, with Irish ancestry on both sides of the family and a daughter who competed in Irish step- dancing for 9 years. Was just at the Irish import store this afternoon to pick up my Christmas crackers. Have yourself a very Happy Christmas!!
