Last Favorite Things Friday for 2010

It just doesn't seem possible that we are so close to the end of 2010.  The year has had it's ups and downs, I guess every year does.  I've enjoyed Favorite Things Friday which Mrs. Pyjamas so kindly hosts each week.   Since the US is so far behind, I'm usually doing my posts on Thursday night.  But it's a nice way to go into Friday, thinking about all the great things I could post about.  I've enjoyed visiting Australia and other foreign climes, seeing favorite books on other posts, admiring beautiful photography, and reading great stories, some funny, some sweet.  So thanks so much for sharing such great FTFs. 

For the last FTF, I'm going to be predicable and  share some of our favorite Christmas ornaments.  My sister started working for Hallmark when we were both in high school.  She worked for Hallmark for many, many years.  So needless to say, I have quite a collection of Hallmark ornaments (It's a sickness in my family shared by all female members of the clan, including my kiddo who already has her own small, but growing collection).  Here are some of my family's favorite Hallmark ornaments.  Can you guess which ones are mine, my guys, and kiddo's?



Happy FTF! 

Check out all the finial FTF's for 2010 over at Quilting in My Pyjamas

Too fun. I started collecting Hallmark ornaments for each of my girls when they were born and when they leave home (two have) they get to take their collection with them. I do this because when I left home I didn't have a single one. Our first tree was naked :(

They are gorgeous Kate. A really lovely collection and a great Christmas finish for FTF.
Looking forward to more FTF's from you next year.
Take care,
