Thanks everyone for entering, and good luck as the giveaways continue next week! ๐

Welcome to Day 7 of the “12 Days of Giveaways”!

Today I am featuring a gorgeous hostess tray from Wendell August Forge, which was founded in 1923 and is headquartered about an hour north of Pittsburgh. I have received a couple of their pieces as gifts in the past and recently have purchased every single ornament they have created along with the Pittsburgh Penguins over the last couple of years. They are known for their handcrafted aluminum giftware, ranging from platters to home decor pieces, ornaments, jewelry, and everything in between.

I was invited up to their factory for a tour and to get a close-up look as to how their products are made. Let me first say that every single person I met with could not possibly have been any nicer, just wonderful people. And secondly, I was utterly blown away by the amount of precision, detail and painstaking work that goes into each and every piece.

One of my first stops on the tour was the room where die cutting takes place. On the left, a gentleman was using hand-crafted tools to etch out a new design. On the right, another gentleman was using a machine that enables him to go over a sketch with his right hand, and an engraving tool copies his movements onto the metal below.

Below on the left is just one row in a room that has metal plates for every single design that has made its way into a Wendell August piece. There were rows and rows, with thousands of die plates. Truly incredible.

On the right is the picture that I most treasure from my trip to Wendell August. Although I couldn’t talk about it at the time because it hadn’t been announced yet, Wendell August partnered with the Pittsburgh Penguins to make Christmas ornaments from the roof material of the Civic Arena (which is in the process of being torn down). What you see on the right are actual sections of the Civic Arena roof that had been delivered to Wendell August for the ornaments.

I honestly can’t say enough great things about this company – from the craftsmanship that goes into their work, to the kind and generous employees that I met. I am thrilled to be giving away a gorgeous Christmas serving piece to one of you! I’d also like to encourage you to check out their website – if you are stumped about what to buy someone for Christmas, you just might find a treasure there! They have everything from serving pieces to ornaments, home accessories, and even jewelry. If you’re like me, you’ll end up buying a bunch of stuff for yourself ๐

(Just a reminder that there will be no giveaways over the weekend; they will resume on Monday for the final 5 days of giveaways!)

Sage S.onDecember 9, 2011at12:19 amMy favorite ornament is one that was given to me in 2009 by my best friend when my husband was deployed for the holidays. It’s not fancy, just a round, black ornament with a flag in the middle and the words “Keep My Husband Safe” on it. She mailed it to me across the country, and it still means so much to me.

Every year, my siblings and I get a new ornament from them, so that we moved out on our own, we would have ornaments to hang on our tree, unlike my parents when they were married.

ElinonDecember 9, 2011at10:23 amUp until this year, my favorite ornament had been my Jaromir Jagr one. This will be the first year I won’t be putting it up. I know he’s played for other teams since leaving us, the Pens, but I just can’t do it this year.

HilaryonDecember 9, 2011at10:24 amMy favorite Christmas ornament is a Santa Claus pull-chain “puppet” thing. I’ve had it Christmas I can remember. ๐

LauraonDecember 9, 2011at10:24 amMy parents took me to the mall to pick out an ornament when I was FAR to young to have an opinion other than “ooh! shiny!”…which is why I ended up with a set of gold bells, which are looking a little bit worse for wear and several are broken, but they’re so precious to me.

JenonDecember 9, 2011at10:57 amI have several favorites….my mom made ornaments for all of us kids when we were growing up & now that we are grown & have children of our own, she made all of the grandkids ornaments. Beautiful, beaded, crocheted & baubled ornaments. So much love went into each & every one. My mom passed away 2 years ago & we miss her so much. The ornaments she made over the years hang on all of our trees & bring us joy remembering her & what a wonderful woman she was. On a side note….mom loved Wendell August forge & any time her & dad went to a wedding or bridal shower there was always a lovely piece of craftmanship beautifully wrapped for the lucky recipients.

KateonDecember 9, 2011at11:30 amMy favourite ornament isn’t an ornament at all. It’s a pair of shoes that went on a doll that belonged to my aunt.

My grandfather appropriated the shoes and made a point of putting them on the Christmas tree first every years from 1952(ish) until his death in 1998.

I found the shoes last year and intend to keep the tradition going when I put my tree up tomorrow.

The beads are clear and when the tree lights hit it just right it makes rainbows on the wall behind. I also cant leave out the ornaments from each of my children’s first Christmas, and my husband and I’s first Christmas together. All have equal importance to me.

DianaonDecember 9, 2011at12:19 pmWhen I was growing up, my mom made each of us kids an ornament every year. They were made with such love and remind me of my mom whenever I look at them.

mere...onDecember 9, 2011at12:19 pmI picked up an adorable ornament from Pottery Barn in post-Christmas sales last year. It’s a polar bear (one of my favorite animals) made from little brown spikes that are tipped in white – think a snow covered hedgehog, but a polar bear instead if that makes any sense.

Mary BaileyonDecember 9, 2011at12:19 pmMy favorite Christmas ornament is one I no longer use – it is a glass Santa Claus I purchased when our youngest daughter was two months old.

Emily @ Life on FoodonDecember 9, 2011at12:19 pmI have an old fashioned santa clause face shaped like a moon. My grandmother gave it to me. We had a tradition that each year all of the grandkids recieved one ornament. I love them all but that is my all time favorite.

AnaonDecember 9, 2011at1:26 pmMy favorite ornaments are origami paper cranes my son made in Kindergarten a little more than 20 years ago. He hung them on dental floss which ended up fraying which was perfect because each year, the cranes are thrown toward the Christmas tree as if they’re flying and their landing spot is where they roost for the entire Christmas season. He is now sharing the tradition with his 2-year old son.

Patty ThomasonDecember 9, 2011at1:27 pmMy favorite ornament is one that I made when I was in preschool. It is a stocking made out of felt and has “1979” in glitter on one side and my name on the other.
