Here is a sneak peek at my Christmas decor which is loaded with vintage family items and mid-century American-made treasures. Christmas was so much fun to put together. So -- let's take a trip back in time...
My grandfather sent this doll from Paris to my mom during WWII. The 1965 Ford Falcon was my dad's.
This collection of American-made decor from the 1950s-60s is all on my tree now...except for the lights! I had to draw the line at vintage lights, even though these have not been used, I would not want to leave them on very long.
The "box" is dressing the dining table all ready for family dinners. I filled it with a variety of pines, pine cones and Shiny Brite ornaments.
My grandfather's bell rests next to a yule log we made from birch.
Bubble lights with Shiny Brite indents and vintage tinsel.
This is part of a Hansel and Gretel set I brought from Germany for my mom several years ago.
We had these Jewel Brite angels when I was a child...
What's a vintage tree without icicles?
Vintage Coke carrier from the store...
My grandmother is holding my mom in the photo as my grandfather was away in Germany. This is her hymnal:-)
Vintage vinegar bottles from the store hold white pines with crocheted snowflakes and Shiny Brite ornaments.
These are just a few vignettes that I will share more in detail as we go through the season.
