Ugly Ornaments

A number of years ago, we started an “Ugly Ornament” contest. It started innocently when Tara would present is with lovely tree trinkets from places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While we were sure someone thought these were wonderful, this triggered a series of one-upmanship that ultimately required a judge.

Not only do we now have a special display stand for the judging, a number of Ugly Ornament trees have popped up to display the accumulated baubles.
