What a wonderful collection.

That the glory of decorations. Each one you pull out has a story and you continue the Christmas tradition.

Nice that you carry on the tradition! I love that!!!

I try to take pics of my decorations, but they're always blurry! :( I'm better at taking outside photos, I think! hehehe

I love your eclectic ornaments. I think that "everything" trees are more fun than color-coordinated ones. They have more character and memories attached to them.

Carla I just love ornaments and you have the cutest ones. I am going to have to play Grinch and steal them away. lol Have a great day!

Everyday I see ornaments I could and would love to buy. I wish there was a way I could keep the real neat ones out all the time. Like a candyland house.

I like your random decorations! Mine is beginning to look like that with all the special ornaments the kids make and receive.

My parents bought some tin ornaments in Mexico and I just love them. We didn't see any straw ones when we were there, but plenty of other straw crafts.

Have a wonderful week!
