Favorite Christmas Tree Ornaments

I am going to keep my writing brief because I definitely fell off my horse tonight into the wall of the indoor. We had just done a jump perfectly after many tries and he bucked while I was leaning forward and off I went. I’m sore, but ok. Got back on for a little while so no one starts to think that bucking me off is a good way to end a ride, but I will be rocking some IB profen, a heating pad, and lots of hot cocoa tonight to recover. I have a red line on my back from where I made contact with the bottom of the wall….I will be fine haha.

This post is about some of my favorite ornaments. I hope that you enjoy them!!

I have the whole set of Rudolph characters, the Bumble, Hermey, Yukon, Rudolph, and Santa.

I hope everyone’s holiday preparations are going well. I had a big food shopping trip tonight for the weekend into next week….it was painful and slow moving. Of course I ran into a student while I was limping through the supermarket still covered in dirt haha, oh well. Happy Friday everyone, one week til Christmas!!

  1. Two things: 1. That sounds absolutely terrible, but I hope you are able to recover via chocolate and Christmas movies!!! 2. I *love* your collection!! Especially the first painted ornament, so detailed and intricate. I love Nutcracker barbie, but given that I have probably 20+ Nutcrackers and 10+ ballet dancers on the tree, it was a given haha. You can tell a lot about people from their ornament collection 🙂

    1. Thank you! I will definitely be sore for a couple weeks probably but I am lucky I wasn’t more seriously hurt, phew. One of my first Boston memories as a kid was the swanboats and feeding the ducks so that first ornament is very special to me 🙂 Happy Friday!
