Vintage Christmas Monday!!
Today is the very first Vintage Christmas Monday Party, and Joan at Anything Goes Here is our hostess! I heart Joan! She is awesome, and if you haven't checked out her blog before, do it now! No, not NOW now. After you look at my stuff!
My first vintage thing is this Made In Japan Santa, with rhinestone eyes. You might need to enlarge to see his eyes, but he looks a little crazy, doesn't he? Like maybe the elves have spiked the eggnog!
Next are bell lights. The ones on the left are from when I was little. Each bell alternates blinking. Gee how I loved these. They were my favorite decoration. Many years later they hung in my daughter's bedroom when she was little, and she loved them just as much! She loved to fall asleep while looking at them. The other set has the spectacularly tacky plastic flowers that I adore!
When I was out antiquing last week, I had to get this box, even though it was empty! Don't we all love Shiny Brites?
But my favorite thing about this box is this: Uncle Sam and Santa Claus shaking hands. Two of my most favorite guys in the world! Mr. Old Glory, you know you're #1!!
And finally, I apologize to those of you who have to look at this again, but.....you know how much I love it!! Now head on over to Joan's to see more vintage Christmas. Joan's going to make Monday the best day of the week!
