|I got this idea from Lisa (who got it from Ninotchka) but I don't think I can post one ornament each day so I'm cheating a little bit and just posting one small group of some of my favorites.|
Many years ago, I went to a Christmas party at a friend's house and noticed that her tree was decorated totally in little teddy bears. I thought it was a fun idea so I decided to decorate my entire Christmas tree with cat ornaments.
|There are other things besides cat ornaments on our tree but it's mostly cats. My favorite is the one on the left. I'm really not obsessed with cats but I came across this one when I was at Hallmark shopping for a topper for my wedding cake. It seemed like a cute idea and it was much less expensive than a traditional bride and groom cake topper so we used it on our cake. I made a tiny bow tie and veil and glued them on and here's the final result atop our wedding cake: <click here>.|
|Here are some of my other favorites.|
I make a point of buying a new kitty ornament each year and I also try to find one if we're traveling so I can have it as a memento of the trip. I use a fine point permanent marker to note the date and place on the bottom of the ornament.
If it wasn't originally intended to hang on a Christmas tree, I can usually find a way to fashion it into an ornament it by drilling a small hole and attaching a gold thread or a tiny eye screw. (Which reminds me that I still need to do that with the small cat figurine I bought on our first trip to China in 2005)
This isn't a FFFF Challenge but if you're posting pictures of your ornaments on your blog, feel free to add your blog link in a comment. :)
PS: I'm extending last week's FFFF challenge for another week since lots of people haven't put up their Christmas tree yet.
