Nine ornaments gleaming

I'm counting down to Christmas with my 12 favorite things; with nine days left I'm running out of time to get the ornaments on the tree!


From handmade to Hallmark, ornaments represent all our memories of Christmases past. Beyond 'Baby's First Christmas' there's the clothespin angel made in kindergarten, and the glass Dalmatian from when I was seven and my entire existence was centered around the movie 101 Dalmatians.

I've got my little camera to represent when I first started getting interested in photography, and I recently got a Little People Barn, an exact replica of the toy I once had -- it even goes "MOOOOO" when you open the door - just like the real thing.

After yesterdays heels, today absolutely needed to be a flat. I chose the brown boots and went from there. My No Repeats Challenge item that hasn't been worn in a while is the floral cardigan. We were inseparable earlier this year, but after April, she was not to be seen. I have actually worn this dress and cardigan together before, but I'm doing it so differently this time it's not even close to looking like a repeat!

Even though the flowers in the cardigan match the dress perfectly, nothing else matches at all - the belt, the tights, the boots; so it cancels out the matchy-matchy.
