Well, soon the Christmas is over and we have to tidy away all the lovely Christmas ornaments and décor. But first I would like to show you some of my favourite Christmas ornaments.
Nancy at Soliloquy wrote a very interesting and nice post about the history of the Christmas ornaments. Very ornamental - “The earliest in the early 1800’s were fruit (particularly apples) and nuts. These, along with the evergreen trees themselves, represented the certainty that life would return in the spring....
Here I made a parade of my favourite Christmas ornaments.
First out is an eggshaped Fabergé Christmas ornament. It is not a 19th century Carl Fabergé egg from S:t Petersburg but Florideco has recreated these Fabergé eggs, mouthblown and handpainted glass Christmas ornaments.

Another Fabergé egg and in front of an old terracotta pot
Small glass ornaments that I bought very cheaply in a 'Tobacco store' in Stockholm ages ago when I still was a student, they were so very cheap that I bought 3 dozen of them.
This is the oldest one - Old Vintage Santa
Cobolt blue glass fir cone.
I wish you all a lovely New Years Eve -
and a Happy New Year 2009!
