Ornaments

I participated in some ornament exchanges this year. I have had fun seeing the different ideas come in the mail. Here are some that have caught me eye on our tree. I have had fun collecting this year. Last year a bunch of our ornaments died. So I'm grateful to Carrie for organizing one, Tracie with the advent, Joy School for the present to at the assisted living center, and a fun girls exchange.

A wreath with a little bling.
A lady made this for me when I moved. It is to be used as coaster but is too pretty to have stained by water spotting. So I strung a string and remember her and wonderful other memories when I hang this.
This is cleaver. The other side is a domino.
We were given this when we married. 
If you look carefully, you can see our wedding picture in the background.
We are participating in the Jesse Tree Advent this year thanks to our swimming teacher.  She invited us to participate with her and her friends. We made a 25 of one ornament and then did a swap. We have a different ornament, scripture passage each day. This is when Abraham left to go where God called him.
My Auntie Kathy gave this to me.
This sweet angel is made from shells. She is precious.

My Great-Grandpa Smith love to dress as Santa and always had bells.

All wonderful, but I especially love the shell angel.
