From now until Christmas, I will be sharing my favourite ornaments and their stories every Tuesday and Saturday! I collect ornaments of all kinds- our tree is not a cohesive set of ornaments, bought to be one picture but rather a mish-mash of ornaments that are all over the place but each tell their own story. The ornaments that I will be sharing are ornaments that have a unique story or a special meaning to me, and I hope that you enjoy them!
This is an ornament that I decided to treat myself to two years ago. For anyone who doesn’t know, I am a member of Alpha Gamma Delta, and have been for over eight years now. I had mentioned Alpha Gam in my first ornament post (the plaid squirrel), but my sorority is still important to me- it’s a life long commitment that I do take seriously! I’m still involved with our alumnae group here and currently serve as an advisor to the collegian (student) members. This is our Armorial bearings that our Founders designed 113 years ago, and I love that they still hold meaning for so many of us today- seeing this ornament on the tree reminds me of that. While I have some truly whacky ornaments, I do love the simplicity of this particular ornament; simply lit by Christmas lights, it’s beautiful!
Do you prefer simple or elaborate ornaments for your tree?
