Wine is another favorite pastime of ours, here reflected in a ornmaent by Seasons of Cannon Falls
Here is a De Carlini snowman, bought last year at Macy’s in New York City.
This harlequin clown was one of the first ornaments I bought as an adult. During my first year of college, I went with several friends during Christmas break shopping in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. There at the Conran’s store I bought several ornaments, I remember my friends (all of 18 years old) thinking I was a bit odd buying ornaments, and that I had an ornament collection to begin with. That was 25 years ago!
Living in Baltimore, I treasure the Cheasapeake Bay. Originally raised in the Washington, DC area, I had no idea that a natural wonder was only a short drive from home. You can’t get away from crabs in the this region, and I love picking steamed crabs covered in old bay seasoning. I found this glass ornament at Greetings and Readings, back when they were in Towson. It is marked “Possible Dreams” as the maker – I’m not sure if it is the same company that makes all the Santa figures or not. It is beautiful, and glows wonderfully.
