25 Days of Christmas Ornaments day 9

Hubster and I met at a hospital where I was working as a nurse and he was interning. Yes, we are that quintessential Doctor/Nurse relationship older romance book lovers adored, heehee.

When my husband discovered my love ( not obsession!) of holiday ornaments, it stood to reason at some point we would get a few that espoused our professions.

We weren’t wrong.

One of my best work friends who had watched us all through our courting years and through our long-distance engagement, gave us these the year we got married.

My sister-in-law Mary gave Larry this one eons ago. I love it sosos much!!!

DO you have any profession-themed ornaments? I’ve given a glass blow-dryer to my hairstylist and one year to my manicurist I gave a tiny replica bottle of polish. Cute, you know??

More tomorrow, peeps.

25 days of Christmas Ornaments day #4

Sticking with favorite book themes (See yesterday’s post) today’s ornament was one I bought for my daughter when she was three years old and based on one of her favorite books.

If you’ve been around for a while you know the iconic opening to this book, “In an old house in Paris covered with vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.”

MADELINE has been a worldwide favorite of little girls everywhere for decades. At one point we had all nine books of the series in our house. This ornament is loved by every woman and girl who sees my tree. I can assure you, almost 100% of them quote that first line when they see the perfect blue coat and bright yellow hat. The fact Madeline was a redhead like my daughter is sweet, too!

Books with specialty ornaments are an abso favorite of mine. I have twenty book-themed ornaments I’ve been collecting since 1988 and include Dr. Suess, and classics such as Goodnight, Moon.

I know… Hoarder tendencies run in my DNA, hee hee.
