I love that (s) on the end of today's theme - yes, one must use the plural when they talk about me and ornaments. I have a serious addiction - the inventory has hit the 700 line on my spreadsheet this year and I'm going to have to get another (the fifth) tree next year in order to display them all. I have been collecting for 37 years and have a huge collection of Hallmark ornaments as well as things I have picked up on our travels that I use as ornaments, ornament gifts from friends, ornaments from exchanges, and ornaments, ornaments, ornaments...it takes forever to decorate our trees but I love every minute of it. Every ornament brings back a special memory of someone, some time, some special occasion. The best (material) gift anyone can give me is an ornament.
|I used to store them in footlockers but I've moved to a more streamlined sectioned storage cube set-up - they are still in their original boxes|
|The table looks like this on decorating day - I unwrap while Vic and Sophia hang them on the tree|
