I have a rather large collection of hand-blown glass ornaments.
I love them. I collect them. My husband and best friend give them to me every Christmas.
I would love to put them on the tree, but I do have young boys and they are so delicate that some have actually shattered on their own, due to their age.
The only one we put on the tree every year is our pickle (and I have had to replace it two or three times.)
As much as I love a tree with those delicate ornaments, I love even more watching my children's joy as the decorate the tree. It is full of "Baby's First Christmas" ornaments, homemade ornaments, plastic balls, strands of popcorn and cranberries strung by their own hands and paper chains.
And every year for the past couple of decades I think it is the most beautiful tree in the world.
