Vintage Christmas Monday!

Thank you Joan for such a fun party! Here are a few groupings of some of my favorite vintage ornaments with a few 'extras' thrown in... This gigantic framed chalkboard hangs in our dining room and covers the wall! I found the frame at a garage sale and except painting the chalkboard I left it in all of it's chippy glory. Joyeux Noel to you.
I put this flocked tree in an old light fixture and it hangs on the bathroom door.
I looooove old ornies don't you? guess what... I found the faux snow from Pottery Barn (unopened) at the G.W.!!! gotta love it!

ewww this pic got a little blurry, sorry.

The ornaments are nestled on a brown transferware platter, in the center is one of my favorite vases full of greens and topped with a tree topper from Seasons of Cannon Falls. (G.W. again!) behind it you can see our collection of snowmen.

I love the faded blue ones the best and the bells...don't get me started!

My little grouping on an old platter, I don't think I've talked about my OBSESSION with platters have I ? That's definitely a future post, I just feel I must rescue them all I swear! The candle in the middle is just a dollar store plain candle (found by the religious candles) wrapped in script paper and adorned with a paper rosette. and old earring.

This one hangs in our tree, I just love the clear ones and that this one hangs from a piece of old string.

Sorry, another blurry picture but I wanted to show the crown on this one!

Last but not least is this little elf sitting on a pine cone. He's made with pipe cleaners and beads and has the sweetest face. He doesn't actually hang in the tree and is sitting on a branch for the pic. Have a wonderful Monday and go check out all of the other participants in the party by clicking on the VCM button at the top of my blog! ~ Theresa xoxo

  3. I LOVE your pink ornaments, I LOVE the blue ornaments too, but I REALLY LOVE that chalkboard!! I still want to make one of those, but I just haven't found a frame that I like. I'm going to miss VCM so much, but I'm going to be coming back to visit you often!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Theresa!
