Cherished Christmas Ornaments Through the Decades -
2000's IN MEMORY 9/11

I have a "hodgepodge" style Christmas tree and I love the nostalgia that comes with that style tree.  This is the final post in this series where I highlighted a few of my favorite ornaments organized by the decade. 

A few years ago I showcased my "Christmas Family Tree Ornaments" that I made using photocopies of old photos - they are Scrapbook style ornaments (click HERE to view that series) 

I used to work for a small company at their corporate office.  Every year the boss of this company picked out a special gift to send to all of the managers of his smaller offices around the country (every manager received the same type of gift).  Anyway, he wanted to make these gifts extra special by having them gift wrapped in a unique way.  Well, I was privileged to wrap these Christmas gifts for about five consecutive years.  I remember that one year I wrapped each gift by making holly and ivy out of scrapbook paper and I covered the gift that way.  Another year I used dried flowers but the most memorable "wrapping year" for me was the year of 2001.  The ornament that you see below was the White House Historical Association ornament for 2001.  This ornament is what the boss gave to all of the managers that year.  I know that we can all remember that horrible day in September of 2001 when the Twin Towers came down.  That's why this ornament was fitting to give in remembrance of those lost on that day.  I wrapped these gifts to look like an American flag using red & white ribbon and pressed blue leaves in the corner (with painted stars).  I always place this ornament in a special spot on my tree every year.
