The months before the Holidays there is always that spark of energy in the air, that excited atmosphere of something wonderful about to happen. Personally I usually enjoy the months ahead of Christmas more than the actual days themselves ... :-)
And one of the things that make this such a great time, is the atmosphere of light and warmth that we create in our homes (and the gratitude of having a home, in times of struggle and so many of us not having their basic needs met ...).
Starting with for instance with a small ornament in our house, may the warmth and the light coming from that, spread ...
Most ornaments on Zazzle can be customized, on some of them you can add your own personal picture, for instance a family picture, or a picture of your pet. You can add or delete text and much more!
Like a lot of gifts this year, a popular trend is still vintage, and I also selected some more contemporary artistic ornaments:
