Commemorate Lady Bird This Christmas...

A Gift that Keeps Giving
Keep Texas Beautiful Wildflower Ornament Dedicated to Lady Bird Johnson

(AUSTIN, TEXAS) – Looking for the perfect gift for those on your holiday shopping list? Want to give something meaningful and beneficial to the state of Texas? The 2007 Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) ornament is the perfect solution.

In honor of her commitment to preserving our country’s wildflowers, the fourth edition KTB ornament is dedicated to the late Lady Bird Johnson. More than any other person, Lady Bird inspired not only Texans, but every American, to treasure wildflowers and value the uniqueness they bring to their community. Honoring Lady Bird is especially relevant at this time of the year as December 22nd would have marked her 95th birthday.

The ornament, made of 24 karat plated gold, features a colorful bouquet of wildflowers imposed over the state of Texas. They make beautiful gifts and can be used as holiday decorations, tree ornaments, or collectables to display year-round. Each ornament includes a pamphlet detailing Lady Bird’s dedication to preserving our country’s wildflowers and native plants. Now, you can order your own copy and remember “Texas’ own Wildflower.”

The purchase of the ornament truly is a gift that keeps on giving back to the state of Texas. Proceeds from sales of the ornament help fund KTB’s statewide network of affiliates who focus on litter prevention, waste reduction, and community beautification programs

The ornament was designed by Nelda Laney, who has designed ornaments for numerous Texas organizations and causes over the years, including KTB’s first, second, and third edition ornaments.

Orders for all four editions of the KTB ornament can be made online at or over the phone at 1-800-CLEAN-TX.
