Warning! This is a really picture heavy post. As a result I won’t babble on about a lot, but I have to say a little bit.
I have a lot more space in this home to get almost all of my vintage goodness out. I made a lot of vignettes, so here goes…..
First the main tree. This is the one that holds all of my mom’s vintage ornament collection.
Beside the tree, in the kitchen, is the antique oak ice chest displayed with my nostalgic 50’s era santa, mrs claus, and other collection. I got that tiny tinsel tree at Hobby Lobby and I love it here in this spot.
Here are all my Christmas chotskies in the kitchen area
Plus this little scene beside my hot drink bar
Coming through the rotunda I have my grandmas vintage putz house collection all set up
Santa is checking his list while keeping an eye on that village. (santa came all the way from PA, spent the first year in Florida in the storage unit, and then finally got his debut in the house. I didn’t want the elements harming him after his thousand mile journey.)
Remember that shelf I got on the side of the road….?
This is the true meaning of the season, and I had to squeeze my mom’s manger scene in here, along with my vintage manger scene collection.
In my crafting studio, I have a little pastel vignette.
Even the bathroom has a little vintage in it.
The icing on the cake this year was finding this on Craigslist for a song:
It’s a tinsel tree, (I just missed a real aluminum tree for $75 bucks) but as a result of looking for another one, I found this vintage color wheel plus tinsel tree for $40 bucks, and then all these vintage bulbs plus tree topper for only $12.
I love seeing all of my vintage Christmas memories and collections all over the house!
