Fun Monday - Christmas Ornaments
Lady K is hosting this week's Fun Monday:
In the spirit of the season I would like to see your favorite Christmas tree ornament. Not to be confused with the WHOLE tree. I want you to zoom in and show me one or a few(you know I can't choose just one!) of your favorite ornaments. If you don't decorate a tree, show me your menorah or dreidel, Kinara, or Yule Log. I want to see your favorite decoration for this holiday season.
We actually haven't put a tree up since Christmas 2003. We moved and our tree got packed away and just never came out again. Since that move, we've moved three other times and now the tree is in storage.
I still have an ornament to share though. Our tree was one of those tiny 1.5 ft tall table top trees. It was just the two of us back then and I got it mainly to have Christmas lights in our little apartment. Instead of buying ornaments, I made origami cranes. The crane is a symbol of peace so I felt it was fitting for the season of Peace and Goodwill.
This crane is made from magazine paper but my 'ornaments' were made from beautiful Japanese print origami paper. I wish I had taken a photo of them!
