I’m finally feeling the Christmas spirit! We decorated the tree this past week, began Christmas shopping and settled on our plans with the family.
Every year that I decorate the tree I reminisce about years past with each ornament I hang. I know it sounds cheesy but really in my mind, ornaments are one of the greatest Christmas elements. I made a point after moving out of my parent’s house to put up a tree every year. In order to build my collection, I started purchasing a new ornament each year. It never failed that my mom took part in this tradition as well (thanks mom!). Then when Jack and I began living together we carried on the tradition. In addition to ones purchased around Christmas, we try to purchase ornaments as souvenirs when we travel.
I thought it would be fun to pull together some of my the favorite ornaments I’ve discovered across the web this year. I think I’m going to have buy Blaze the circus horse! I hope these little treasures can inspire you to start a new tradition yourselves. Anyone have a favorite holiday tradition to share?
On another note, a great place to purchase wonderful ornaments is Anthropologie and they happen to have a great website for their ornaments this year. So great, that almost of all them are sold out! You must take a peak though, they’ve animated all of the ornaments and it’s really sweet! To Visit Anthropologie’s Branch Bunch click [here].
