I can't really pick one favorite ornament, but I will share a couple of ornaments that are especially meaningful to me. The first one represents what I hope our family will always remember about Christmas - that even though Santa is lots of fun, the season is really about the birth of Jesus Christ. We hope to always keep Christ in Christmas and even Santa stops to worship the newborn King.
The two ornaments that follow are ornaments made by women in Thailand. Our church has helped to develop jobs for women who have been brought out of prostitution and make things that we sell here in the U.S. to help them provide a living for themselves and their families. I don't know if you can see the detail, but the needlework on these ornaments is absolutely exquisite. I bought these ornaments many years ago, but they still are very meaningful to me.
And for today, the blog I would like to highlight is Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor. She has a lovely blog and has just made it back to blogland after some difficult surgery. Please stop over to her blog and enjoy the sights and sounds of a lovely Southern Bungalow and share some get well wishes.
I hope all of my friends in blogland have a wonderful and generous and meaningful Christmas season!
And one last ornament - My vintage Barbie in the Red Silken Flame outfit.
