Although the tree got taken down last week, I took photos of some of the ornaments before they went out of sight for another year. Here is just a small sampling.
Mini quilt rack given to me by a fellow quilter and the sewing machine ornament that I saw and just had to have. I love these.
The little mice that my children made.
The teapot ornament that came from Ayla who is in London and just so she could spend Christmas in spirit with us, her glass ornament was hung.
My children travel a lot - I mean A LOT and the Alaskan moose came from Eric when he was working on a cruise line one year. The glass ornament is a native design that Laila bought when she was in Vancouver. The name of it is "Spring" and I also have "Salmon."
Each of the girls got her own "Skating Girl" one year and they always go up on the tree.
The porcelain globe with Santa in it is one of my favourites. It is hand crafted. Of course, the tree would not be complete without some hint of Canada's famous sport, hockey, and the favourite team here - the Maple Leafs.
The beaded ornaments below were made by Laila. I have two others that didn't show up well with my poor photography skills. I love these and wish she could find some time to do more beading. She used to make friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss when she was a teen.
