Christmas Handmade Ornaments




 




For many years I was preparing, together with a group of good friends, Christmas ornaments for charity sales. Nowadays, when I hang mine on the Christmas tree I remember the good moments we were sharing, doing such activities together...
This year I decided not to put anything fragile on the Christmas tree because we shall have our first grandson who is now 18 months and who will try to catch the toys! I recall some kind of dramas with my own children breaking every year beautiful ornaments, with the result that from those days only two or three are still "alive"! 
Hoping everyone is enjoying the feasts preparations!

  1. Christine, tes décorations de Noël sont très belles, et je comprends tout à fait que tu craignes quelques catastrophes (innocentes) avec ton petit fils...nous avons nous-mêmes évite cette année les decos à cause de notre chaton qui joue avec n'importe quoi !!
    Mais je suis tentée de commencer à faire des boules .....elles sont tellement belles !
    Que de bons souvenirs elles doivent te rappeler ...

  7. J'ai aussi quelques boules en tissu que je retrouve avec plaisir chaque année, que je les accroche ou pas. Et comme toi, les souvenirs de partage reviennent en mémoire et c'est bon.Tu vas te régaler à voir ton petit-fils découvrir les trésors dans le sapin en toute tranquillité!

  8. LOve the fact that the ornaments hold so many cherished memories...I think that's what I love most about homemade ornaments. Yours are beautiful. Mine are mostly from when the children were young and they were made from their tiny hands:) Yes, i too am enjoy the festivities of the holiday season. :)
