Thanksgiving was a wonderful time to enjoy the family, feast on lots of goodies, and remember each and every blessing we have to be thankful for. It seems Thanksgiving gets forgotten more and more each year. By the time Halloween hits we’ve got Christmas on our minds.
Well, we just finished trimming our Christmas Tree and I am just plain delighted. It brings a whole new dimension and warmth to the house. We gazed and joked about each ornament as it went up remembering exactly how we got it. Do you have that ONE ornament that you just love looking at? That ONE ornament that you just wish you could hang all year long? I have a few in the shape of crosses that I want to keep out and add to my collection, but another favorite that will take convincing to put away is one made by The Ornament Girl:
This Christmas Ornament is absolutely breathtaking. The Ornament Girl hand quilts intricate designs on each ball creating one of the most unique and amazing ornament I’ve ever seen. Made with hand-selected fabrics and sheer, shimmering ribbons she layers them around a ball using an old-fashioned pattern she learned from her mother.
The Result? A tiny quilt embracing a ball and trimmed with beautiful ribbon, lace, or charms. I can’t even fathom how much time, energy, and patience these ornaments must take. I was incredibly excited to review one for myself and when I received the ornament I probably stared at it for 30 minutes or more.. just trying to figure out HOW she does it! It’s talent and perfection all rolled into one!
The great thing about her ornaments is she makes them YEAR ROUND! There are so many selections to choose from for Holiday’s such as Valentines, St. Patricks, 4th of July, Halloween, and MORE! I’m not saying leave your tree up year round like some people, but can you imagine hanging an intricate, handcrafted ornament on your mantle for each Season or Holiday?
I’ve got my eye on one sweet ornament for Valentines! Take a look:
