This year we added some very special snowflakes to the tree. Patrick's parents have long had crocheted snowflakes on their family tree and this year my MIL surprised all the "kids" with our own snowflakes as a thank you for making Thanksgiving dinner.
It was so special and I love them. So pretty. According to Diane, she was able to get through one in an hour. I didn't find out where the patterns are from, but I bet you could look in Ravelry for some references. They are treated so that they are stiff and hold their shape.
I also have a habit of picking up an ornament as my souvenirs from trips. (Saves money and keeps the knick knack level in the house at a minimum. I'm a bit OCD about having too many things sitting out and around.) Anyway, the white one in the next picture is all shells. We grabbed these at the airport in Turks and Caicos.
The little clay sheep are too cute, aren't they?
Our nephew, Aidan, made the family members ornaments this year, too. We got a tree and stocking. So special.
