Christmas decor has always been big in our house, since I was a kid. Now I have quite a collection of vintage ornaments and also family pieces of my own. Many are those plastic Santa's and reindeer, which inspired my Ornament design. Slightly stiff, but very cute plastic reindeer! One tradition we have in my family is to make a new ornament every year with my daughter. We've done snowflakes, ceramic ornaments, beads, wrapped fabric balls, you name it, We've done it! I just love a homemade decorated looking tree!
We have many other traditions here in our house at Christmas time... One big one is, we go to Strawberry Fields, in Central park every Christmas day. It's also where my husband asked me to marry him, and where we take our Christmas card picture!
Another tradition in our house? To watch the vintage Rudolph cartoon every year... So my ornament design for the Aurifil Designer Blog hop is based on those vintage looking Reindeer Christmas Decorations...
