Last night we finally decorated our tree. We always get a real tree from our local farm. We don't really do a theme, its just a collection of ornaments that have been collected over the years. There is a lot or Scandinavian ornaments as I am from Finnish descent, a lot of ocean and beach related ornaments. We live right next to the ocean and we love it. Most have a sentimental meaning to them and I love the look of the vintage ornaments that my mom still has.
Here is a closer look at some of my favorite and most meaningful ornaments.
|My Dad passed away in 2004, he was a lobster man and this was a mini replica of his buoys|
|We got this for our wedding in 2005|
|This was made by my Great Grandmother "Mummu" she made the tatting on it. Its over 40 years old.|
|This little angle was on my Mom's baby shower cake when she was expecting me|
|Just a cute little vintage deer|
|This bird has had a little nest in our Christmas trees ever since I can remember|
|Love this little Santa, not sure why|
|A Scandinavian Gnome|
