I posted a similar card a few days ago that had Christmas baubles on it, and got a few comments about the word "baubles", which doesn't seem to be used across the Pond.

So my question is, what on earth do you call them if you don't call them baubles? Ornaments? (They're the things that collect dust on your mantlepiece or shelf. All right then, MY mantlepiece or shelf.) Er, do you say mantlepiece?
This bauble is from Penny Black, as is the sentiment. The colour scheme is from The Play Date Cafe's current challenge:
