First off, I want to apologize for the mishap with the link last week. I was not home to try and get it fixed and up sooner. I don't know if it was my error or not, but I hope to get this corrected this week. If I don't do better...I may be fired and replaced as the hostess....sorry again guys.....hope this week it starts on time.
I have lots of vintage ornaments, and wanted to show you a few that are on my tree(s) this year. I have picked these up at garage sales, estate sales and antique stores. Hope you enjoy a peek......
I have several hand made items I picked up from antique stores, I love the stockings, it was a pin originally, but I decided to hang it on my tree.
I have several of these types of ornaments, plastic with a picture inside, I just love these ornaments, they are very charming.
These little mice I picked up at a estate sale, they were so cute, I had to have them.....dreaming of sugar plums.......
Some of them have a little glitter on them to add to the pazzaz.....
I think they have happy faces, I would date these to the 1970's. Seems I remember my Auntie having some of these or some like them on her tree...maybe that was what nudged me to purchase these.
Another antique store find..handmade ornament Santa, I think he has a sweet little face.
vintage quilts make great ornaments.....
vintage quilt ornament made by a special lady...I have a whole set of these, but the angel is one of my favorites.
........and of course, I have tons of vintage glass ornaments, but none like this one...this one is special. This past week, I received a box in the mail.....how fun is that?!?!?
This is what was inside, and a lovely card. A couple that rents our cabin in the mountains each year also reads my blog, and has discovered we have lots of things in common besides our love for the mountains.She loves antiques, photography and has some of the same shots I like to take of surrounding areas in Colorado...she even has a Wiener dog....just like me! She had two of these little ornaments and thought I'd like to have the other......LOVE is more like it.....I was so surprised and thrilled by this small gesture of friendship....it really is the little things that mean the most!
I love the scene on this ornament....a stagecoach pulled by horses, you can see the Christmas trees in the background and all the presents on top of the stagecoach....I love this my friend...thank you for remembering me!!!
I know next Thursday is Christmas eve...I will have a post up.....I have something special to share......if you will be busy...I understand....so if you can not join us....I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...I hope you holidays are as special as they can be.
