We had bought some things that each of our kids had on their own wedding gift registry when they were each given showers. But one of the things that we have given each of our girls for one of their showers was a decorative box filled with their Christmas ornaments from each of the years, as they were growing up.
It was fun to go through the ornaments and find them. There were a few years that I did not have specific ornaments with their names and year written on them, but for those years, in place of those, I was able to give them an ornament hand-crafted by their Lola (my mom), their Granny (my hubby's mom) or me.
So, for Heartthrob and Sweetie's shower, along with a couple of other gifts, we gave them his ornaments for the past 22 years...
I sewed little muslin pocket pouches for each with the year....
And then drew a little sketch on the front, so they could remember which one was for which year, especially when there was not an obvious year associated with the ornament.
Thank you for stopping in! Next week, I hope to share how I made these little pocket pouches.
Here is artwork of two ornaments that were drawn for a family that has so many, many, many beautiful Christmas trees that they set up in their beautiful home every year.
