niente di più bello a Natale che la pianta di Ilex con frutti rossi!


My favourite ornaments are handmade by my boys made in school, brings back alot of great memories, my little boys are now adults... awolk at rogers dot com


Cute holly.


My favorite ornaments date back to WW2 and are family heirlooms. I am sharing them during one of my 12 Days of Decking my Halls on my blog. Http://kwiltypleasures.blogspot.com. The fun started today!


The oldest ornament I own is made from an eggshell and is a diarama with a little figure in it with a candle. The outside of the egg is covered with a crocheted blue all around it. One of her family members that I didn't know made them and I have yet to figure out how she did these. They hung on grandma's trees for years.

A glass bell that hung on grandparents' tree in the early 1900s. Its very fragile but I treasure it. They passed before I was born.

Holly Holly Christmas to you Pat. Love the ornament. Thanks for sharing.


I love the holly pattern and thank you and Aurifil. My ornament I enjoy every year on the tree was given to me by a co-worker 34 yrs ago. A girl bear on a swing and boy bear on a trike.

My oldest ornament is one that was on my trees as a child. It is multi-colored glass and shaped like teardrop. It is verrrrry fragile, but I still love it! Memories.....


My oldest ornament is a small painted plaster mini frame tree that holds a pic of my granddaughter from second grade--about 6 years ago. She painted it at school. I can't believe how time has flown!


I have a snowman ornament I made in First Grade out of cotton wool balls. So cute. Love your ornament.


My oldest and most cherished ornament is a little scrap ornament my grandmother made for my first Christmas and hung on her tree, then gave me when I turned 21 (long ago *lol*)
It is about 2x3", and has green silk, then a little scrap of red netting, then a tidbit of polkadot ribbon sewn on top, just in a line. All perfectly centered, straight-stitched around, and with rick rack sewn on for teh hanger. I think I know it like the back of my hand!

I have a little woven copper basket with a braided handle that is just the size of a chocolate covered carmel. I was always hung on my Gramdmothers Christmas tree in a hidden spot. The one who found it's hiding place got the candy treat. I don't know how old it is, but, I'm a senior citizen now and rememnber this from when I was small enough to be held up to search the Christmas tree for it!

My oldest ornament is a hand blown glass red teapot that my brother brought back from Germany in 1952.


I just love holly. These are so cute.


Our family has been making ornaments each Christmas for the past 40 years. Most of the older ones are made from felt.

We just bought an old home and we inherited some ornaments and they look to be from the 1940's... very fragil but I love them. My favorite ornament would be a Hallmark ornament that is a little mouse on a chocolate dipped spoon!

So sweet! Thank you for sharing it!


Sadly, I don't have any old ornaments. I'm not sure what happened to the ones my parents used to put on their tree.


I have ornaments passed down from both my mom and my mil ... love having the old and the new all on my tree! Not sure which is the oldest, but my favorite of the ones my mom passed to me is a little pair of stained glass ice skates ... they just make me smile!

My oldest ornaments were from my kids childhoods and I have dispersed them to each of my kids. So all my ornaments now are new and that's fun too! Thanks Pat!


I still have 3 small nativity ornaments my 39 year old son made when he was very young.


I love holly! I'm going to fill in the leaves and then add it to our tree.Thanks for the great ornament pattern.

Shirley in Canada

Ohhh I do love this!! Thank you ... now to start the little panel with these :)
