This week, in between shopping, cooking and cleaning....I finally got all my decorations for Christmas put up....That will no doubt leave a lot of blog post between now and Christmas..hahah....
I'd like to show you my vintage Christmas wreath I purchased last year from a local antique mall. I had dropped hint after hint last year about how bad I wanted this wreath with all of its vintage goodness....well the week of Christmas, I went back to the mall and asked the owner if someone had purchased one for me as a gift....and well.....since this was still there, I knew no one had taken me seriously and did not do anything about my "hints"....ever wonder why folks bother to ask you what you want for Christmas sometimes? I do....just sayin'.
So at 50% off....this baby came home with me, and I had to wait a whole year to really enjoy it....and I must admit, enjoying it I am......my family thinks it is tacky.....it might be....but I love the tacky vintage goodness.....
This is full of vintage ornaments, cups, bulbs, lights, and of course the tacky colored garland.....it is totally not a classy decoration but certainly a display of vintage goodness....and I just love it...
I remember my mom had Santas and the little mouse exactly like this one on our tree when we were small. I remember the ornaments with scenes on the side of the balls, my grandma had some like this too, this little decoration is full of nostalgia and memories.
Here is a shot of the vintage garland.....I paid $35.00 for this at 50% off....and well, I usually try to be a bit more thrifty, but when something speaks to your heart....sometimes money does not come into play......hope Steve misses this post he might not be too happy.......
Have a wonderful holiday to all my blogging friends who live in the States, and those that are not celebrating Thanksgiving this week, have a wonderful weekend.....see you guys next week!~
