Several for me, several to share. I'm decorating my Christmas tree with ornaments from as many different countries as I can get. One of these will always represent Guatemala.

"Ceramic ornaments 'Lord of the Sun'"

These are so happy and bright. They have a wonderful thickness to the ceramic, even slightly raised on the facial features. What looks like a mustache is a birds beak on the face. The decorative motif is on the front/face side only, but with full color on the back. I'm hanging them all over the place, not waiting for Christmas.

We are very delighted with the whimsical birds which now hang on our Christmas tree. They are brightly colored and well detailed. Love the toucan!

I purchased star ornaments for my best friend for Christmas. She, her husband, and each of her children were able to pick a star for their own. They loved it!
