I have long had a love for handmade things. Knowing it was made by a person and that there probably aren't a whole lot of something makes me happy. When I shop, I like to find the things that no one else would have. Here are a couple of photos of handmade ornaments on my tree:
I spent ages playing softball (and I still play on a couple of teams). This is an ornament my mom got for me in 1992 from a vendor at the Yellow Daisy Festival.
As a kid, I went to a very small private school and we always got to go on the coolest field trips. We went to Frabel, a glass blowing workshop here in Atlanta. I have been smitten by their pieces since I was young. My mom got me this ornament a few years ago. She also got me one of their floral pieces for my college graduation. (Be jealous!)
And this post would not be complete without a photo of what's going on in my kitchen right now:
Yes, I am making cinnamon rolls from scratch. Again, be jealous! Or just come by and have a cinnamon roll with me!
