A few Christmas Decorations...

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments. The felt heart was made by Emily. Actually, I have a set of felt hearts from Emily. Every year when I pull them out, I think....I want to make more, but I never get around to it. The ornament on the right, the white crocheted ball, is also a favorite. A friend and fellow crocheter taught me how to make the ornament....I am pretty sure I have forgotten how to make it, but I love the way it looks. I actually crocheted around a glass ball ornament. I only have 2 of them and every year when I take them out, I think....I want to make more, but I never get around to it. (Theme developing....actually, I think that is the theme of my life!) Another favorite ornament is on the bottom. My mom and Jason brought it back from one of their travels...it is a Dutch hand painted ball....

I'm also adding a photo of my fireplace. I love snowmen and have a large collection. However, this year when I was pulling things out of my Christmas totes, I just didn't feel like putting them all out. Either my tastes are changing or I just don't feel like clearing away my 'regular bric-a-brac' to replace it with Christmas clutter.

Get out!? I made ornaments? That is hilarious, we had to zoom in on the photo just to see. We also wanted a close up of the Dutch ball because I have one similar...Josh took a picture of it so you could compare.
