Glass Teardrop Ornaments

November 29th, 2018

Many, many years ago I ordered glass teardrop ornaments from Gardener’s Supply. They quickly became my favorite holiday decoration, simple yet stunning. After falling in love with them, I looked and looked for more, but they were no longer made. Fast forward to this year, I found new ones, though they’re smaller than my original ones, at Terrain.

These little glass raindrops are one of my favorite things to pull out each year. There’s something beautifully simple and natural about a tree with lights and these little sparkling beauties.

Do you have a favorite ornament?

    Those are beautiful. I remember them from Gardener’s Supply catalog. I’m going to have to head over to Terrain.

    The Vermont Country Store used to have those in red and clear.

    These are great. Yes, I do have favorite ornaments. Things from our family, really. Special memories, from when the kids were little.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.

I don't decorate for the holidays as much as I used to. We get so much snow that I quit...
