Like many of us Ashley loves to decorate her small apartment each holiday season. Many of her ornaments are handmade and each year she loves to add a new ornament to the mix. When she 1st moved to Seattle 13 years ago a friend of hers gifted her a set of Scandinavian Straw Ornaments. Those ornaments hold a special place in her heart, reminding her of the years she lived in Ballard and will always have a special place on her Christmas tree.
