Mom's Christmas Tree Jewels ~ Memory Count Down ~ Day 2

ca ~ 1950's 

I believe this ornament (one of several that are similar) is as old as I am . . . as far back as I can remember, it's been on every Christmas tree we have had and it is one of my favorites.  The design and paint has worn off a bit here and there and around the top, it has become discolored over time. When I removed this ornament from it's spot in mom's Christmas treasure box and held it in my hands . . . so many wonderful Christmas memories filled my heart and how Blessed I am to have this wonderful gift. 

~ Happy Holidays ~


  1. Moms today ornament is really a pretty one.

  2. Thank you, Betty, it's so old! Each time I handle these ornaments, I am scared I will drop them and break one . . . well it happened. At first I was going to throw it away, but then, I decided to keep them (I broke two) and crunch them into little pieces . . . I then poured the chard's into a clear glass ornament that you can get at the craft store. It really looks pretty. When I get it done, I will post it here. I was so upset at first but it's one way to still keep the ornament and memory too. I'm still mad at myself!

  3. I have one of these ornaments from my mom's collection too! :-) I don't have as many of my mom's ornaments as you do of yours but I treasure the few I have. I look forward to seeing what else you have in your collection.

  4. This looks like the Christmas tree ornaments I remember from my early childhood; I am always looking for ornaments with identations like this one. Lovely!

  5. Thank you, Jasia and Greta ~ These ornaments sure bring back alot memories. I wish I would have asked mom more questions about them. As I post each one, I would love to know more of the history of it but I am very fortunate to have them regardless.
