Let’s share our favorite ornaments. Lights, tree’s. Send in your pics and we’ll see how each other do things. I’ll start with my favorite “store bought” Christmas ornament. I bought this ornament in the gift shop of North Memorial hospital in November of 1990. My mother in law was dying. She held it in her hand and said “you’ll buy anything” and she laughed. She died two weeks later and to this day, I can see her holding this in the palm of her hand and it’s one of my happiest memories.
It’s a little snow globe and snow falls when you turn it upside down.
I love that story! 🙂 I actually lost some of my childhood ornaments in the last move. 😦 My Rainbow Brite is my favorite one. The ones Bailey have made though are my VERY favorite!!
How did you lose them Nikki? That’s so sad. Send me pics of some of the ones Bailey made. My next two are “homemade” by Jason and Tobe.
I have no idea. I have an entire box missing of a lot of our really old ones. 😦 Makes me sad but none of Baileys are missing and those do mean more. My mom worked for Hallmark in the 80’s and early 90’s and bought us one I think every year. It is sad and I don’t want to tell her!!!!
I still have Rainbow Brite though!!!!!! 🙂 I’ll do some pictures today!!
How the heck did that happen?? It was such a close move too. That would make me ill.
IDK and it does make me ill….It may be in the rafters in the garage but IDK yet. It’s too cold to go look.
Oh, what a memory. Joy, this is a special ornament, indeed! I’ll go snap a few pics of my favorites!
Thanks Anne. It’s only going to work if you guys send them in.

I also forgot to say….she SO knew you!! You will buy anything!!!!! LOL
You are so right!!!!
One of my favorite ornaments is on my Christmas card this year. My mom got it for me. I looked at the year the other day and it’s from 2005! My how time flies. My favorite ornaments as a child were some my mom still has. My grandpa worked for Hallmark also and has us put our orders in from the book so he can get them at the company store for us.
