Ornament Centerpiece by Crate & Barrel

You may be planning your Thanksgiving decorations, but I'm already mapping out my Christmas glitz. Here's one of my 2009 must-haves: a mini-version of Crate & Barrel's window ornament display. It's a genius way to display treasured ornaments, especially if your tree is overburdened &mdash or, if you don't have a tree at all.

Even if we have a tree &mdash and we haven't decided on that yet &mdash I think I'll get this for my small collection of gold ornaments from the Danbury Mint.

I appreciate that it allows ornaments to be placed in other pockets of the home, besides the tree. Ornaments on a dresser, kitchen table, or bookshelf would be beautiful.
