Keyrings as Christmas ornaments work for me.

We decorated the Christmas tree yesterday, TWICE (That's an entire blog post by itself so I'll have to keep you wondering why we had to do it twice!).

When you're on vacation, there are always shops selling Christmas ornaments (even in the middle of July) for way too much money. I love getting Christmas ornaments to remember special family times though.

So, I always look for cute but cheap key rings. You just take the ring part off, add an ornament hook, and there you have it...fabulous Christmas ornaments for just a few dollars.

It was so much fun showing the girls our 'ornaments' from our honeymoon. We went to London and a little town called York. Here are some pictures of some great ones that we picked up for about $1.50...

The first two are from the minster in York...

And here's a really bad out of focus picture of a cute little British telephone booth...
Ooo, most of them are nice heavy metal ones too. They really look neat on the tree. Key rings as Christmas ornaments definitely work for me!

What a great idea! My dad never knows what to get the girls from business trips he takes and always ends up buying then key rings from the airport stores. I never know what to do with them. Now I do! Thanks :)
