Mom's Christmas Tree Jewels ~ Memory Count Down ~ Day 7


~ 2009 ~

These beautiful ornaments belong to me . . . mom (1933~2010) gifted these to me in 2009. Each year, she would give me a set of ornaments for Christmas and of all the ornaments I had received, these are special and  my most favorite. There are only three . . . an Angel, a Star, and a Christmas tree . . . I love looking at them . . . thank you, mom.

  2. Thank you, Jasia, it's what I do, just sit and "gaze" at them. They are so magical, the way the light bounces off of them and the little tassel . . . they are just so pretty . . . mom knew how to pick 'em!

  5. How beautifully you photographed these treasures. It's particularly difficult to capture glass, but you certainly did and with lovely results. They are stunning ornaments. Well done, Gini!

  7. Thank you, Sue . . . I was so glad that I was able to capture the beauty of these ornaments, and they still look even prettier in person, I love how the light reflects thru them. It took several photos but I was happy with these. I've seen many of your ornament photos and they are fantastic.
