Every year, when I unpack my Christmas decorations, there are some sentimental favorites that mean so much to me. Each has a story to tell and a memory of a Christmas past.
My snow globe collection is very special to me and I now have around forty of these snowy, sparkling, musical treasures. Each is unique and has a story of when and where it came from.
This snow globe is one of my favorites, because it represents my two daughters; one blonde and one brunette.
You could call this ceramic tree vintage at this point, but I love it, because it was handmade and given to me at a wedding shower, 30 years ago.
Another collection I love, are my White House Christmas ornaments. Each was given to me by my brother in law, a former Secret Service Agent, at the White House. The ornaments have historical significance and a different one is created each year.
Perhaps the most sentimental of all, is our nativity set that originally belonged to my husband's mother. It is made of brightly painted ceramic, now a little faded, worn and chipped, but all the more precious and beautiful in my eyes.
