Advent Calendar Day 3--Christmas Ornaments

The prompt for this advent day is heirloom ornaments. I am blessed to have a number of old ornaments from my ancestors. The three featured in this blog were given to me by my mother. She had them framed and they have graced my dining room for decades.

She seemed to know about these ornaments, which makes me wonder if they adorned her family's Christmas trees in the 1920's when she was a child. The ornaments would hold a piece of two of candy and then hung on the tree to be opened on Christmas Day.

  1. These are beautiful! Nicely preserved. The framing of them was a wonderful idea. What a gem.
