Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday and Merry Christmas everyone! This is a busy day, a day filled with family and fun, but I decided to have a post ready in case you need to sneak off to your computer for your fix of vintage! If you care to join us here today, post something vintage, leave a comment and visit all the participants, link in at the bottom of the post so we can see your vintage treasures.

This is a re-run post from last year.....I did not have a cleaning crew show up this morning to clean my house, do laundry, make a couple of trips back to the grocery I had to take care of all of these tasks myself.....thus.....ran out of time......I am sure you will, back to the old post I repost a Christmas wish.....

Today, I want to show you some pages from a vintage little book I showed you last week. They are perfect for wishing Christmas Cheer.

C hildren's delight on this wonderful day
H elps give it meaning in a bright friendly way.
R apturous hearts with joy overflowing
I mpart to each person warm inner glowing.
S eason of love is this time to remember
T hat night long ago of dazzling splendor.
M emories bright as the evergreen tree
A ll come alive for you and for me.
S uch is the essence of Christmas.
~Gail O Clark

I hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas. If you want to link in, the link is at the bottom of the post. Once again, Merry Christmas and may all your dreams come true. Next week will be the beginning of a new year....and hopefully that means lots of new vintage goodies to share.....see you guys next week.....
