Last year's ornaments were photos of the girls wearing the cloche hats they got that Christmas.
This year Court's ornament features a sweet photo of her with her handsome Spotty, who we lost in November. I just love this picture of the two of them...
Amanda's ornament features a photo of her planting a kiss on her sweet Tiger. I love this picture, too. This year the theme was obviously kitty love. Both of these photos were also part of their handmade gifts this year and I'll show you those projects soon.
In addition to the photo ornaments, I buy an ornament for each of the girls every year. Someday when they have their own places (with room for a tree), they'll take all their ornaments, and the memories attached to them, to their new homes. This year I fell in love with these crown ornaments from pinkbuttercreme's ETSY shop.
I gave Amanda the white bird adorned with a sparkly princess crown, lace ruffles, and a rosette...
... and I gave Courtney the same ornament in pink. Aren't they GORGEOUS? Be sure to visit PinkButterCreme's shop - she'll be reopening January 15th with lots of new Valentine's goodies!
And then I came across another ETSY shop with the most adorable vintage styled tinsel ornaments - just look at these sweet kitties...
...and handsome hounds!!! They are the unique creations of Stephanie at Old World Primitives and they're just the cutest things ever!
Here they are, out of the package, so you can see them better. I couldn't decide between the kitties...
...or the doggies, so I had to get both!
Be sure to visit Stephanie's ETSY shop where you'll find more of her kitty and doggy ornaments as well as Valentine and Easter ornaments in this same style!
I also want to mention that both of these shops offer EXCELLENT customer service - quick shipping, friendly correspondence - the works! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
Hope you're all enjoying the start to the new year. We're surviving the weekend's snow, but longing for spring!!
