Fairy Merry Christmas--Christmas Ornaments

Welcome to our Fairy Merry Christmas Blog Hop!  I have teamed up with other bloggers to bring you a bit of a different take on holiday decor or traditions.  I have to admit when I signed up to participate, I thought, "Do I even have Christmas Fairies?  Do I know anything about Fairies?"  As I thought about what to share, I remembered I do have two delicate Christmas decorations who just happen to be fairies!  They are stored away with my other Christmas decorations and have been part of my holiday decor for many years.  I collect angels (as evidenced by my two well-stocked curio cabinets) but many years ago I came across this beautiful fairy and needed to add her to our tree.

This fairy's box is well-worn!

She is ready to make her annual debut!

We just love her!  She fits right in with our family decorations!

However, this little fairy isn't alone.....a few years after adding her to our decorations, a friend gifted me with this little lady.

I even found this fairy ornament for sale on ebay!

Just for kicks here is my daughter Ali dressed as a fairy for Halloween  a few years back.

I hope that you enjoyed my simple little post.  Please check out all the Fairy Merry Christmas posts--on Monday, December 8th be sure to visit Sarah Celebrates for our next Fairy Merry Christmas post!

Please plan to visit all our Fairy Merry Chistmas Participants!
