I have some my Mother gave me that were her Grandmother's.... They are handblown glass, very pretty, they look like pinecones, accorns, and little houses.... some of them are meant to go over a candle and the heat would make things inside spin...... I think they must be 100 years old........
My oldest (that has only belonged to me) I got when I was in kindergarten (21 years ago). Our kindergarten teacher made them for each student - they're crocheted reindeer. I do also have 2 ornaments, a tree topper, and a tree skirt from my grandmother. I'm not exactly sure how old they are, but I would guess they're 30-40 years old.
DH and I found this really funny on our first Christmas after we were married... in the bottom of both of our ornament boxes we both have these little walnut santas that we made in kindergarten. We think it's funny that both of them survived all these years. We hang our walnut "couple" on the tree every year.
Actually, my oldest decoration would be the ornament my parents got me for my first Christmas... (that's 30 years, yikes!) ... they got each child an ornament every year, so I have a tree full of memories.
I have an ornament that my mom made for me when I was 4 or 5. So it's about 25yrs old. I have other's that were made by my late husband when he was 5 or 6 and when that his parents bought when he was born, so that would make them about 30-35yrs old.
Our oldest ornament was made by my FIL in 1922 when he was 6 years old. It is a Santa Claus made out of brown paper bags and has been a very cherished and carefully taken care of ornament!! It is 83 years old
my oldest ornament is about 30yrs old...it a ornament that my grandmother gave me when i moved into my own home. ia ctually have a few of them thata re 30+yrs. i treaure them dearly. i always put them close to the top of the tree so the dog or young fingers can't touch them:reindeer:
