How about some lovely little animals and pet ornaments for your Christmas Tree? And not just for the tree!
I don’t usually do a Christmas tree but a series of wreaths on my front door, over the fireplace and in my bay window as shown above. I have a collection of dachshund ornaments that I’ve added to my crèche which makes me chuckle. Isn’t my nativity scene sweet? It was painted by my Aunt Bette Wasserboehr who was a watercolor artist. She painted these pieces when she was quite young – high school or college when she worked for a local ceramics artist. It’s one of my most treasured things.
Small items like this make for great hostess gifts, stocking stuffers or embellishments on gifts and packages.
I’ve pulled together a group of cute animal and pet ornaments that are so cute! As we know, order early, shipping times are slow! (I’m sort of in shock it’s Thanksgiving this week.

For New England locals – the annual Newburyport Holiday House Tour is taking place on Saturday December 11th from 12-5. As with last year, they are doing an outdoor event with decorated yards and scenes around the Newburyport/Amesbury and Newbury communities. Last year – despite being a rainy day – was a really wonderful event and this years is sure to be the same. You can read all about last year’s event here and purchase tickets for this year here.
But wait! There’s more! I cannot attend this year because my brother will be in from Colorado (haven’t seen him in two years!) so I can’t go this year. I have two tickets that I will be giving away the first week in December. So stay tuned!
