Ornament Anecdote: Day 14

The trio.
Sometimes ornaments get hung on the tree perfectly.
The kids got these three right.
Unlike the silver balls in a previous post that got ganged together.
Oh well.
In three weeks, the decorations will all come down and any attempts at perfection won't matter for another year.
I tried not to do much rearanging this year, unless I saw that the life of an ornament was endangered (branch not hooked properly).
Or too many divas shared a small branch (they each need their space to shine!)
My kids are a huge help and often have more enthusiasm for the decorating task than I do.
And I think they are getting an appreciation for the fragile collection that only comes out once a year.

Loving the trip around your tree. Yes, this is good for your kids to hang these....helps ensure they don't throw them out one day when you aren't around anymore.

Clever kids - these 3 go so well together!

Sorry I'm so late getting here today. I just got around to visiting a few blogs. I've been in the studio with my head down all day and totally lost track of time. I really like the ornaments from Day 11, and these are pretty special, too. The wooden one from yesterday put a smile on my face, especially with her heart shaped mouth.

I echo Patty - are these "teasers" leading up to seeing the whole tree in its vintage glory? :>)
