Normally I just reach in the totes and pull out whatever deocrations I touch. Today I think I am feeling nostalgic these ornaments were picked out with care and have many fond memories for me.
With that being said this is a new one. I've always wanted the shiny glass ornaments finally got 2 - this is a bear for my son AKA Bear.
In 2001 we were living in Baltimore Maryland and all our decorations were in Toledo. So we were given a really poor looking Charlie Brown tree and we made our ornaments. These are ceramic and my Mom painted them.
I made 4 of these stockings in 1984.
One year at church I would sit for an hour while Bear was in Sunday School. So while I listened to the choir practice I would stitch up the cute flannel stars - in 4 weeks I did 50 of them.
Not sure when these were done but they were painted by my Maternal Grandma.
