Pulling the ornaments out and reminiscing is one of my favorite holiday traditions. I've slowly built my ornament collection since I was a baby girl and it's fun to see how my ornaments have grown with me. My tree is a reflection of my passion for dancing growing up, love of cats, worldwide travels and now my life with Adam.
This little beauty is a Kate Spade ornament. This was the "year of Kate" for me it seems! My wedding shoes were Kate Spade, our new silverware is Kate and I've gotten 2 purses and some jewelry from there this year as well. I love the brand's classy style.
I'm a sucker for Hallmark ornaments and pick up a few each year. The 2013 dog ornament was too cute not to get. I love the antlers on the frame!
I picked up the Jim Shore Pineapple ornament last year when we were at the Bronner's Christmas store in Michigan. Adam and I love pineapple and the detail that Jim Shore adds to all of his pieces is amazing.
I got a few of these Vera Bradley ball ornaments when they were on sale after the holidays. This is one of my favorite prints and love the way the light plays off the ornaments. Beautiful!
I grabbed this little pilot at the Christmas Shop in Pigeon Forge last month. A great way to remember this is the year Adam got back into flying.
And of course... 2013 was the YEAR of our wedding. I LOVE the various wedding related ornaments we have and have received as gifts. These are 5 that I bought for our collection. The picture frame is a Hallmark ornament and has the year on it but with the camera flash you can't see it in the picture. The engagement ring is also from Hallmark and has the year engraved on the side. I just picked up the dress and tux jacket a few days ago at Kohls. They also have little charms with the year. The cube is from Shutterfly and probably one of my favorites. I also made one last year with our engagement pics and it's hanging nearby.
What are some of your favorites? Do you decorate in colors/themes or what's your tree decorating style?
