Vintage Christmas Monday!
Once again it's time for Vintage Christmas Monday over at Anything Goes Here, where Joan is our hostess with the mostest! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I spent alot of time with our daughter, who was home from college. We went to see Twilight Friday night, and that was so much fun! And I spent alot of time decorating for Christmas, inside and out. And I didn't go on the computer at all, so I've got alot of catching up to do!
When I was little, we would spend every Christmas at my grandparents' house in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Grandpa would go out into the woods and cut down a tree, and then I would decorate it. These chenille Santas were the first things to go on. I'm so happy to have them to put on our tree!
These chenille candy canes were the next to go on my grandparents' tree.
And finally these foil bells with glass beads. It's amazing that these have survived so long, but I do take great care of them, and I hope my daughter will eventually put them on her tree when she has her own home. Although I doubt it, because she always says that her home is going to be very modern!
I love these little angels, especially the two feathery ones!
Here we have an old plastic Santa cookie jar.
And last but not least we have a vintage tree skirt that I got this weekend for 37 1/2 cents. Okay, it was 75 cents, but half off, so I probably paid 38 cents for it! And naughty MimiLucy has made it her favorite spot! Now please head over to Joan's for a list of all the blogs participating, and Joan would like to invite YOU to join in too!
