Dillard’s Cloisonne Ornaments


Do you collect ornaments?   I have a friend who has at least 75 Christopher Radko glass ornaments and other who collects Margaret Furlong pieces but my ornament collection isn’t made by a well-known label though they are beautiful to me. 

Ten years ago I went to an after Christmas sale at Dillard’s department and discovered their cloisonne ornaments and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Our tree is covered with items that bring back family memories, like the zebra to mark my trip to Africa or the coffee cup (our family drinks a lot of coffee).  Our youngest granddaughter is nicknamed “the bee.”  Imagine how happy we were to find a bee ornament this year!  Each ornament comes in a red velvet box making each purchase a special keepsake.

Each year the Dillard’s cloisonne ornament offerings seems to get smaller.  I hope this is one collection that continues for years to come.
