Since then, I've collected ornaments from several states and Canada. From our fabulous Holiday Folk Faire in Milwaukee, I've collected other ornaments from around the world, as well as the UNICEF one--when I can get there.
I have special ones that were handmade.
One leather babushka doll from Sitka, Alaska:
Very cool and expensive clay one from Acoma, Sky City--the oldest continually inhabited city in North America:
The latest ones are from my trip last summer to Canada.
Rug making from the Acadians at Nova Scotia:
The flags of Newfoundland and Labrador on shells. Okay, it's corny, but I love the Labrador (The Big Land) flag: white for snow, green for land, blue for water. The spruce twig for the three first nations: Inuit, Innu, and European settlers.
