Love, love, love your ornaments. I gift my 14 grandchildren a new ornament every year. I choose them according to likes and/or accomplishments of the current year. My hope is when they set up their households someday their ornaments go with them to begin their Christmas memories.


I have been collecting for several years, and I have enjoyed the quality of your ornaments
