SCUBA-Themed Christmas Ornaments

It's been a busy Holiday Season and I apologize for the lack of posts recently. One of the many distractions has been holiday decorating and I thought I'd share some images of the SCUBA and marine-themed ornaments Betty & I have collected since we started diving in 1993. Betty LOVES Christmas in a big way, and SCUBA ornaments have become popular in recent years so we have LOTS! Here are a few samples:

by December Diamonds

Nemo and Dory
were purchased at DisneyWorld.

A cool Barracuda 
sporting shades.

A Flying Fish,
of course!

The Sea Angel speaks
into her shellphone!

A Mermaid with a
strand of shells.

Personalized clay diver ornaments
purchased years ago at the
Fourth Ave. Street Fair
in Tucson, AZ.

We found this glass diver at an after-Christmas sale
at Neiman-Marcus. Kind of an unusual find!

Joy to You All
Have a great 2012!

Betty and Barry Fackler


  1. Dear Barron.
    My name is Bryn. I hope you are well.
    I am contacting u as I see u have the exact same dory Christmas ornament as we do but unfortunately I have accidentally broken our one which belonged to my stepmother. The ornament meant so much to her and was irreplaceable, I have been looking for this decoration for shuch a long time as it was bought in around 2006. If u would be interested in selling it I would be more than appreciative but then I would completely understand if u wouldn’t as I’m sure it also means a lot to u as u have had it such a long time. I would appreciate a response.


    1. Bryn,

      I also had an accident with some Christmas ornaments this year. We lost Nemo and Shark, but Dory somehow managed to survive! Please feel free to send me an email if you would like her.
