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!!

An older ornament from my parents, the swan boats in the common
Santa in his workshop, one of my favorites from my childhood
One of my favorites from my Breyer’s ornament collection
My Barbie ballerina for Nutcracker season
Another great one from my Breyer’s collection, how many little girls have asked for a pony for Christmas? 🙂
This one is a gift from my mom, love it
Rowing on the Charles in Cambridge ornament, perfect for a tree belonging to two rowers!
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!
