"I've got a new madness! I'm running wild for shells. The beauty of shells are as infinite as flowers." - Mary Delany, 18th century shell artist

Welcome to the 1st Annual Making Christmas a Merrier

 Holiday One Ornament at A Time Linky Party!

I am thrilled to get this party started!!

I always liked show & tell days at school.  I was one of the nerdy kids that brought in all my treasures to show off to the class.  I started a tradition  with the Hubbs when we were newly married 30 years ago and had our first tree.  I buy a "couple" ornament for us but some years later I started buying or making a seashell ornament for me. Well now,  I've been around awhile so I have a few keepsakes to share and I know you do too.

To join the party -  it's very simple.

* just copy/paste the web address of the specific blog post or your blog home page.
* add a title of the project in the appropriate box.
* choose the best picture so I can easily see what you have to share.
(it will give you an opportunity to choose a picture when you are linking up)

I also ask that you link back to me in your post!

that way more people can come and join the party!!

 So link up.  Have fun.  Visit some of the other posts and tell them you found them at The Essential Beachcomber!

The Christmas joy is spreading! I am linking up with Doberman's by the Sea's Bavarian Christmas Linky Party
