my tin ornament tree

A few years ago, a dear friend in San Antonio had a party where she decorated everything with Mexican tin ornaments.

I fell in love with them.

That year for Christmas she started my collection of (and love affair with) Mexican tin ornaments when she gave me a few as a gift.

For the past several years, whenever I've been able to find any, I've increased my collection, but they're hard to find. I'm a regular at eBay and Etsy -- two places where I seem to have the best luck in finding them.

In addition to our traditional Christmas tree, this year I felt like I finally had enough tin trinkets to put together a decent tin ornament tree.

It's going to be fun to watch the collection (and tree size!) increase every year.
