This week's ornaments come from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's store.
I'm a sucker for these old fashioned Father Christmas ornaments-- The "Old World Charm" comes through in this version.
The unicorn in captivity ornament is based on a tapestry from the Museum's collection. I've always loved the image...I remember a friend had a poster of this in her room when we were in 6th or 7th grade and I was enchanted by it.
You can get a better look at or purchase these at the Museum's website...it's doing a good deed, too, as purchases support the Museum.
