This morning I was looking through the box of ornaments. Even though I will not be putting up the tree this year, the ornaments are fun, and they all bring me happy memories. I began to wonder as I did this, just how many Santa ornaments I have. It seemed like an awful lot of them.
Sometimes I get a little crazy. (Sometimes?) I decided to find out, and started to lay them out. This was what I came up with at the time. Later, I found at least three more. And I wouldn't be surprised if the other box - the one too high up on the shelf of the tool shed for me to reach - could have more. I have a LOT of ornaments!
Now I wonder how many angel ornaments I have? Oh - and how many snow flakes? There are the ones I needlepointed, and the ones my sister crocheted, and those delicate wooden ones.

I have this long Santa ornaments - the ones with the white beard and the green hat!!
how cool is that :)
Such lovely ornaments and I'm sure they hold many lovely memories! Trees are nice, but we don't need them to celebrate a season of love and joy. You have the means to do that just looking at your ornaments and remembering all the lovely Christmases that were. And may you have a beautiful one this year!
Personally I like your 'piglet' the best.
My friend Onnie has an amazing Santa ornament collection .... she said she's going to downsize this year ... I wonder if she has any of the ones you (and Dianne) have
Love your ornaments, especially the "folk-art" and handmade ones. Absolutely charming!
You know that I love that Winnie the Pooh ornament don't you?
Our tree is decorated with an assortment we've accumulated through the years. None match, but we love them dearly.
Each year is a walk down memory lane, as we hang and rehang all the ornaments made by our children and given by friends.
Yours are wonderful.
These are all wonderful ornaments! I like the Santa on the Bicycle! What a fun collection!
Ahh... yeah. That's a bunch of ornaments alright. Must've taken a good little while to collect them all!
I love the Santa ornaments. But Piglet is cute too. Lisa
Don't you just love those ornaments that keep making an appearance year after year? It's like a little nostalgic treasure hunt every year when I open the box.
I showed some of my ornaments last year, but you have inspired me to photograph some more of mine after Christmas.
