Vintage Christmas

I know we're in the throes of spring, and the holiday season is but a distant memory, but I want to share some pretty vintage Christmas images that I just love, love, love.  These pictures really evoke major nostalgic feelings in me.





I want to make something like this.

I looooooooove old rhinestone Christmas Tree pins.  My mom gave me her pin and matching earrings and when I see them, they bring back memories of my elementary school years.  

Love old ornaments too!

  2. I have one of those Christmas Tree pins! Have had it for years...

    Is that an old tin with a vintage postcard with bottlebrush trees in the front? What a great diorama it makes!

  4. Christmas in April! I love it. We just had 17 inches of snow this month and it does seem like Christmas. Your tree pins collection is stunning. Lovely and inspiring photos, too.

  7. Love those vintage ornaments. I have a few from when I was a kid (1960's) that were purchased before I was born.

  9. I tend to go for the vintage look for Christmas, too. It's nice to see the glass ornaments of yester-year coming back into fashion.

    I decorate with handcrafted ornaments gathered at numerous craft fairs, and some made by crafty friends. I plan to make the treetop angels for both daughters this year.

  10. Since it's already pretty cold here, I thought for a moment I'd somehow missed spring, summer and autumn!
