Mcklinky Blog Hop - Christmas Ornaments

Today Mcklinky's themed blog hop is Christmas Ornaments, I have so many special ornaments, but the ones that hold my heart the most are my collection of Classic Winnie the Pooh ornaments.  I know it may seem strange to some, but when I was in high school and people would ask me, "What do you want to do with your future?" my thoughts always said "be a Mom".  I was very blessed to have parents that were such beautiful examples of Christ's love to me and my siblings, and all I wanted to do was one day have a family of my own.  So, when I was 19 I started working the Danbury Fair Mall.for the Disney Company in their first Connecticut store and that is when I truly fell in love with CLASSIC Winnie the Pooh.

My very first Classic Winnie the Pooh ornament was "Baby's First Christmas" and I tucked it away in my hope chest for the child I HOPED and PRAYED to one day have.  Four years ago I hung it for the first time on my son David's first Christmas tree.


I have collected many many more Pooh ornaments since that first day that I bought "Baby's First Christmas" and they still remain my favorites.  Here are just a few more from that collection and then some other favorites on the family Christmas tree.



One of my favorites, I think this was the second one I bought, its made by Willitts Galleries and made of bisque procelin.

Some more of my favorite Winnie the Pooh ornaments, made by the Midwest company from a molded resin material, I found most of these on ebay

  5. What a beautiful story! You brought tears to my eyes!

    Reminded me of a letter I found last night while pulling out the Christmas decorations, found it in another box I was snooping in. It was a letter to my future first born child that I wrote when I was a junior in high school back in 1995. It was so funny to read yet so cool since now that I'm a mom.

    Loved your story! Have a Merry Christmas!

    I've added you to my blog roll! Feel free to visit me sometime! ;)
