    I found ornament # 20/50 outside Carlsbad Inn. It is purple with a blue hat. I took the tag but I left the ornament for all to enjoy. Merry Christmas!

    We found our ornament #39/50 on Grand hanging from a tree next to the train tracks. It is sparkling green with a yellow flower on it. We like it a lot. Thank You!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    My neighbor, Tom Kelley, gave me my ornament #38/50 that me found downtown. It is really unique and reminds me of an American Indian good luck ornament. Thank you for this good idea.

    We found 25/50 on the hedge outside starbucks. It is very zany – a red glitter ball with cartoon eyes, sequins and feathers. Definitely the most exotic decoration on my tree!

    I found ornament 10 of 50. It is a beautiful turquoise ball with bright green spots and googly eyes, adorned with a feather plume. (it just happens to be the same colors of the ornaments already on my tree!)
    My thanks to the artist!

    ok, so I found one more, a gold ball covered with glitter buttons of all colors. We were outside Coyote Bar, once again late night and the security guard saw us walking with one ornament each hanging from our hands and he asked us, “Hey, are you looking for ornaments?” and our response was, “Yes!” and he said, “Well there’s one hanging from that sign,…I’ve been wondering what it’s been doing there.” So, I grabbed the ornament and showed him the tag and he was happy…#4/50 found!!!

    I was out for a brisk post holiday walk and found #19, it is a large very colorful ornament totally covered with litttle colored cotton balls. I found it hanging right over a window at the village grill. Another one I found #34 was hanging right in front of the chocolate store on state st. It has orange glitter with an flower and vine on it–really pretty:)
    I also found just a tag on the ground #6, I wonder where that ornament ended up.

    We were surprised to find one during our morning walk with the kids. Our youngest spotted it and it made her Christmas. It was #26/50. Lots of glitter and a funny face. THANKS!!!!

    Tom Kelly (above) found ornament #48 and hung it on the screen door to our apartment. I found it hanging there the day after Christmas. It is green with pink and gold peace symbols all around it. I love it! It now hangs in my living room from a necklace of dry (once fresh) roses I got from the Krishna Temple in PB 🙂
