My Special Christmas Tree Ornaments
Christmas Tree takes the center stage in decorating the home for Christmas.
Everyone has a certain theme they follow for Christmas Tree decorating.
My Christmas Tree has a Ukrainian theme, since it is adorned with numerous handmade decorations, as well as other ornaments purchased at Ukrainian church bazaars, and ethnic arts and crafts stores.
Last year I shared my collection of angels Christmas Tree decorations, and this year you will get to see my Ukrainian ornaments.
These are ceramic ornaments with traditional Ukrainian designs, which can also be found on various embroidered cloth items, or wood art pieces.
The shape of these two ornaments remind of a Ukrainian church dome, or steeple.
The intricate geometric pattern is very prominent in Ukrainian designs.
Aren’t these just lovely? So elegant, yet festive, at the same time.
This ornament incorporates some of the traditional Christmas motif, hence the hand painted Holly leaves and berries.
This is my very special ornament, a contemporary version of a hand painted image of the Virgin Many, dressed in a Ukrainian traditional attire, holding baby Jesus, wrapped in an embroidered cloth.
This ornament was created to commemorate the Millennium of Christianity in Ukraine, thus the dates 988-1988.
