A frog king with wings., holding a gilt oak leaf.

















A court jester. I have a few of these in different types and sizes.

















A banjo-playing frog, also one of a pair.
















The snowman is the oldest ornament I have. It was my mother's and she bought it in the 40's. It is one of the earliest examples of plastic ornaments. He has a hole in his side to hold a candy cane.

Wow it all looks great! You've done a great job! Must be nice to concentrate on your own decorating after doing so much for others!

I love Santa in the High Chair! Hilarious!

As I told Naomi (OOLOTH), I love it when ornaments have meaning... I give my kids one ornament every year, so we have a tree FULL of memories!

I love your ornaments - such fun! I have always had a soft spot for frogs too :-)

Your staircase looks fantastic - very festive!

I relate to your jester. I need one like that to represent me, but an old tired worn out jester would be more appropriate.

i think you're the first person i've "met" that collects frogs....how did that come about? very cute ornaments! and the switch to beta seems to have gone smoothly- i was having major problems before i switched.

Holy Christmas!
Love it.
Love the frog with wings, I like ornaments that are a little out of the oridnary, and am always glad to see trees that have a lifetime worth of ornaments. I never much cared for the trendy trees that all have monochromatic boring balls.

Oh Judy, these are wonderful...! I love the one that Mr. Kemju gave you...well, truth be told...I love all of them! The two Frogs Hugging---that is a little work of art!
Your hiuse looks very very festive!

srp said...

Oh, no! No one would expect you to have frogs anywhere on your tree! I would imagine you would have a special tree just for the frogs..... now you need a frog tree topper!

I'm not surprised your house is decorated looking like House Beautiful magazine. It's just stunning, Judy. You're so talented and creative.
Love your snowman ornament.

Everything looks beautiful! Such unique ornaments. I especially love the frogs.

I read the rest of your blog, too -- funny, funny stuff.:)

Maria said...

Warm, welcoming, and so you! I loved peeking in to see your decorations. Have a Merry Christmas

Angie said...

Would you come do my mantle? It never looks right to me. Yours is absolutely gorgeous!

Oh I love your ornaments! Fun! And I love your use or ribbon. Ribbons make a tree or a banister. :) Wish my cats would leave them alone. lol But alas, I'm ribbonless.
Gorgeous decorations!
