13 Favorites: European Christmas Ornaments

December 7, 2017

Every year around the holidays, my mom takes out her mother’s set of Dutch glass ornaments. They’re made of fine mouth-blown glass in bright colors or quirky tin shapes dusted in silver. Growing up, I remember pulling them out of their faded cardboard boxes and feeling like they were relics from another world.

Now, thanks to Internet shopping, I can start my own collection and expand on my mom’s with handmade ornaments sourced from all over Europe. Here are some favorites.
