On Sunday, we finished decorating the tree + listened to side B of A Very She & Him Christmas.
I love decorating the tree with old ornaments from my childhood + some before I was even born. The past two years, Zac's mom has found some of his ornaments + given them to me. So sweet. We went to the same schools growing up, but he was a year older. I'll pull out an ornament + he'll say "I remember making one of those!". I think it's neat. I wonder how many times our paths have crossed over the years. Don't you wish you could rewind + see?
These are some of my newer favorites (right top: my mom gave us this one last year when we were engaged, middle: our Christmas cards this year, bottom: my maid of honor + bestie gave us that one):
And older favorites:
We also made salt dough ornaments. I'm sure I've made these before but I really don't remember. I've been wanting to make them the past few years. They were really easy + fun to do. I halved this recipe (and still had leftover dough).
We still need to finish painting + varnishing them. I'll show you when we're done :) What are some of your all time favorite ornaments? Do you buy new ones or use vintage ones?
