It's ornamental, my dear.

My friend, Meream, recently showcased some ornaments on her blog here that reminded me of the Christmas ornaments my mom used to make. When I asked my mom about her ornaments, lo and behold she said she would ship them to me!! I was absolutely delighted to open the package of handmade holiday goodies.  Each one was made with such detail and care.  And lucky for me, she also included the leftover supplies, because (of course) I just can't wait to make a few of my own.

Here are some of the darling ornaments my mom sent...

Getting these in the mail was like having Christmas come early and I can't wait to put them up on our tree. Thanks Mom!

So, do you have a favorite cherished holiday decoration?
