    X-mas ornamments

    Do you display your ornaments all year? How?

    I've had mine up all year since I started collecting them in '97, always on a strand of lights.

    Over the last year or so I've become increasingly unhappy w/ the way it looks where they were. I recently installed a ceiling fan, and the ornaments had to move/ come down.

    I'm not sure if I want to try to heng them elsewhere, but I know that I don't want the light strand up. There are a couple of ornaments that I definitely want displayed though: Naboo fighter, Millenium Falcon, Han and Chewie, even Qui Gon looks supierior to most action fig sculpts.

    I do not keep mine displayed all year. But I do have some suggestions. First, if you go to a Hallmark type store you can find wire ranks that hang about eight figures on them. That's one way. For the effect vehicles, I used a light strand but blacked out the bulbs inbetween them. Remove, replace, make them stars. Whatever. Miniatures, I always put together. Just a couple suggestions.

    That's pretty much what I do also. It just makes it better.

    I only bring out the few that I have and proudly display them on the tree each Christmas. I am by far the coolest guy in this building.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I lug out the chest and put on the ones I want on the tree during Christmas time only. I have enough between the Star Wars and Star Trek ornaments to cover the whole front half of the tree.

    What christmas ornaments are you guys buying? I've seen everything from Pirates of the Caribbean ball ornaments to Superman, My Little Pony, and Scooby Doo.

    I really like these these classic toy christmas ornaments by Basic Fun. You can find them at K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and TRU. The ornaments are based on classic toys from Fisher-Price and Hasbro, and cost around 5-6 bucks. You can get Play-Doh, Operation, Monopoly, Mr. Potato Head, stackable rings, and even the push toy with the popping balls inside.

    I picked up a Clue boardgame ornament with a tree, fireplace, and stockings filled with murder weapons. Since Hasbro is one of the licensees, I'd love to see some vintage Kenner SW toys done as ornaments. Check out the mock-up I made from the Clue ornament with a miniature model of the Death Star playset beside the tree. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    I picked up an ornament at Target last week, a pink lawn flamingo with a santa hat and holding a candy cane, it's glass with metal legs and just so tacky-funny I couldn't resist even at $5. They had another one wearing a hawaiian shirt, but nothing xmasy about that.

    I have 2 Star Trek ornaments - talking Shuttlecraft Galileo and light-up TOS Enterprise, they're the only sci-fi xmas ornaments I ever put on the tree.
