Create your own hand-blown glass ornaments in Grapevine.
Few things evoke more nostalgia than Christmas ornaments. Our family accumulates more each year, whether we need them or not. And as the tree branches bend with an increasing number of decorations, ornaments mark the passing years with sweetness and sparkle. Having a soft spot for such things, I was excited to learn that we could make our own ornaments at a glass studio in Grapevine. It sounded like a holiday souvenir too good to pass up.

Let’s just say it had been a long day in the driver’s seat, and patience was wearing thin. Each summer, we make the drive from Texas to Minnesota to visit my family, a two-and-a-half-day endeavor each way, only manageable with a stack of Scooby Doo movies for my young children and plenty of snacks.
