My Hodge Podge Tree of Ornaments I LOVE!

I have a few ornaments that I JUST LOVE seeing come out every year.  They are a bit quirky, thus me deciding to put up a separate formal tree, but if I had to choose these ornaments would always make the cut!

These little people my mom made for Ben while we were still dating.  I am in love with them.  They match nothing on my tree or in my house but I love them.  They will always be up in my house at Christmas time!
I also love this one.  Someone gave this to Ben and I for our wedding, the picture in it is one of Ben and I at my Bridal Shower.  I always have to stare at it a little bit when it come out too!
This is a new addition to our hodge podge tree.  A few weekends ago Ben took Kobe and I up to Bronner's.  I found a set of these ornaments from the movie that comes on every year and Ben bought them for me.  I always want something like this every year and finally got them :)
Last, but not least, is Kobe's macaroni art that is spray painted gold that he comes home with from some where every year.  I love this stuff.  My parents still have plenty of ornament art work that we brought home and it goes on their tree every year and I am sure this will show up on my tree when I have Grandkids too.

What are your favorite ornaments?  I would love to see them!

I love all your ornaments as they are so unique and made with love and that makes them so special. I do have special ornaments but I do not put up a tree anymore so I just enjoy all of the families trees.
