And if you need glass ornaments in the form of carrots....check out these mouth blown, hand painted carrots..
This Carrot ornament is from Inge-Glas of Germany, hand made in Germany and even has a little tuft of green leaf at the top.
This ornament is from Merck Family's Old World Christmas and is a whole bunch of carrots! The hang tag on this ornament reads: The glass Carrots ornament is truly a decoration that can bring a tear to an old woman's eye. Long ago carrot ornaments were very popular as traditional gifts for brides. They were believed to bring the bride good luck in the kitchen.
