I believe the crochet around the ornament was done by my Grandma Woodfield...or Great Grandmother Carlson. I'm not sure...mom, correct me...
This ornament and the next one have been put up my me for as long as I can remember. It is reminiscent of happy, but frugal days of my parents while they were in Grad school, but I LOVE the homemade aspect of it.
This ornament was given to me (and one exactly like it to Kellie) when we left Berkeley, California after my Dad graduated. It was to remember all of our happy memories.
I think this ornament is so clever. I chose this one on one of my family's traditional Myrtle Beach vacations. Each kid has their own Santa-based shell.
So there was a peek into one of my favorite christmas traditions that I can't wait to continue with David.
