Every year since we started collecting Italy ornaments for our Italy tree, we add a few new ornaments. Some have been purchased in Italy, and some I have found through diligent shopping! Here are this year's additions:
An Italian Santa:
Sur la Table came through with the next three: bread, balsamico, and salami!
How about some pannettone? (from Bellagio)
Gumps provided a shiny red Vespa:
and Santa on a Vespa:
This was painted by a local artist in Ascoli Piceno:
Many of our Italian friends are also on the tree!
Ceramic bells from Faenza
Finally, Rome and "A Tour of Italy":
Santa may have a couple more additions for us!
