I was telling the kids the other day that out of all the Christmas decorations we have (and I have a lot) there are two that are my favorite. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of our Christmas decorations with you. I'll start off with my all time favorite decoration which is currently hanging from my mantle. I used to hang it from a shelf in my kitchen but that shelf has since been relocated and I had trouble finding a new location for my favorite decoration. I'm hesitant to hang it from the mantle for fear of the heat when we decide to fire up the DuraFlame logs but so far it has survived.
Here is a picture of it from close up. I'm not sure why it's my favorite decoration - it could be the detail in it and the old-fashioned style of it. I'm not sure how old it is either. My mother-in-law (the finder of fantastic things) gave it to me some years back - I'm sure she found it at the Goodwill somewhere. I would love to recreate it and I have left it out of the decoration boxes a few times with the hopes that I might create a few more like it but I just haven't gotten around to it.
In the meantime I just enjoy it and hope it doesn't fall apart for a while.
I would love to see some of your favorite Christmas decorations and why they are your favorites. Let me know.
