For my Christmas post this year, I thought I’d show you pictures of many of the 16 ornaments I bought while traveling in England (London and the Lake District) a few weeks ago. I don’t have anything clever or profound to say this time–just that I hope you have a magical and blessed Christmas!

Celtic cross from the British museum (bottom left), Hogwarts crest from the Harry Potter studio tour (top), Peter Rabbit painted on an egg from The World of Beatrix Potter (right)
two Victorianesque ornaments: robins from Charles Dickens’s house and a Christmas tree from the British Library
Here’s the postbox robin again, along with my other ornaments from Westminster Abbey. (That’s Queen Victoria.)
These are from Harrod’s. I could have spent a fortune on ornaments there.
I forgot to take pictures of my Christmas pudding ornament, the heart-shaped ornament with Shakespeare’s face, and a few others. But I hope these give you a taste of England at Christmastime!
