Ryan and I enjoy traveling and always want mementos to remember the trips by. Some of the things we search for on trips that are also easy to pack are ornaments. We traveled to Hawaii and Europe this year so had a few new ornaments to add to the tree that I thought i’d share.
From Hawaii- The first one is from Pearl Harbor in Oahu and the second we found in Maui (it’s actually a keychain). If I can’t find an actual ornament I will sometimes purchase a key chain and take the ring off to make it into an ornament 🙂
Ireland- this is their national symbol and it’s made out of turf from the Irish bogsRome, Italy: this little guy was hand made by an actual toy maker we came across while walking around the streets of Rome. Real life Geppetto.
This first one we picked up in Notre Dame. Obviously this is the Eiffel Tower, again a keychain turned ornament. Cheaper, yet, just as effective 🙂 Anyone guess who this is? The Opera Garnier was so beautiful and definitely one of my favorite places in Paris. Their gift shop had these awesome Phantom ornaments and I just had to have one. London: We were there the longest and thus, we walked away with more ornaments 🙂
Van Gough was picked up at the National Gallery in London, where a few of his works reside.
Classic London with the clock tower Ryan really wanted this one 🙂Hopefully with future travels we’ll have more to add to the tree!
