Happy New Year!!!
I hope you enjoyed celebrating with family and friends. I’m excited to start a fresh new year-what an opportunity to work on some new goals and discover new possibilities. I’m sure we all have our “list”-we’ll have to keep each other on task!
I just love decorating for Christmas. With each box I open, its like visiting old friends-vintage ones that is! So its always so hard packing it all away for next year. And, this Christmas, my presents included a few more vintage items to add to my decor, courtesy of my mom.
There’s nothing like getting vintage Christmas FOR Christmas. Except if its vintage Halloween, which has happened on occasion as well! 🙂
I just love the illustrations on these boxes of icicles! Santa peeking through the window is just adorable. Due to some playful kitties in my house, I didn’t add icicles to my tree this year, but I did add ropes of vintage silver garland. Can never have too much sparkle on a Christmas tree!
This year I picked up one of these suitcase record players. I think its fantastic that records are coming back, and this was perfect for playing the vintage Firestone Christmas albums from my Dad’s collection. We had to give the kids a quick tutorial on how to place the needle on the record. So funny, and good for them to see how it used to be. The more “techy” we get, the more I worry future generations won’t value how things were. Maybe collecting vintage is more of a crusade to preserve the past…
A small bowl of Shiny Brites and a large Gurley Santa candle round out the new decor. This Santa is about 10 inches tall and made a charming centerpiece to our Christmas dinner table-unlit of course.
I’ll enjoy unpacking them again next Christmas!
Have a great week!
