  4. Everything is beautiful - I love how everything is colorful and has a special meaning to you. My babies are still young (1 and 2) and I love your idea of buying them an ornament every year...I think I'll start that tradition in our family now! Thank you for sharing all of these beautiful family treasures. Take care and thank you for stopping by my blog...I'm following you back too!

  5. Your trees are lovely. I too have bought or made my kids an ornament every year. When they leave home they will have a nice collection to start their own tree with. Have a merry Christmas!

  6. You Christmas decor is fabulous! I loved the ornaments the most! I have been enchanted by them since I was a child - and I cannot stop myself buying more new ones every year. But my heart skips a beat when I find a vintage one. Well, that is what I call a treasure :)
