Blue Monday: Vintage Christmas Decorations

Happy first week of December. Where has this year gone to? I can not believe it is December 1st. Monday is the day we showcase all our blue items or items we find during the week that is blue. Sally from Smiling Sally's Blog host this event every week and it is a great way to start the week with.

Today, I would like to show you a really cute vintage Blue Christmas tree. This tree belongs to my Aunt LaVoice. I took this picture when I was at her house a couple of weeks ago. It is in fabulous shape, the colors are so vivid and I just love it! I know you will enjoy a peek at this vintage little tree.

Here is one of my vintage ornaments that hangs on my tree. The past several Christmases, I have had a black bear tree, with bears and a wildlife theme for all ornaments. This year, I put all my vintage glass ornaments on the tree instead. And I really am enjoying the look of my tree this year. (I miss my bears, but a change is good) I am sure I will be showing more of my vintage tree ornaments as the month goes on.

Go ahead and take a look at all the blue items on display today at Sally's. I love to look at all the blue items every Monday.

  1. Your Aunt's tree reminds me so of Christmas decorations from my childhood. I love the look of your tree this year too.

  2. Pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love blue decorations even though my sister insists on it only being for another holiday.

  3. What a cute little tree! So clean cut! :-)
    Have a wonderful advent!


  4. lol I must tell you that your aunt's vintage tree originally was green! lol It's blue now because it is a vintage piece. lol lol Thanks for the laugh!

    Happy Blue Day.

  5. I am glad I have some things worthy of beng featured on your blog. However, I may have to hire an agent.

  6. Sorry "Smilingsal" but that little tree was never green. BLUE is the actual color and has been that way from the time it was bought.

  7. I can't tell from the photo if that tree is six inches or six feet, but either way it's a nice tree.

    My mom had a couple of boxes of vintage glass like that that she was finally going to toss. I don't know how old they are, just that they're older than me. (I salvaged them from the scrap heap just 'cause I thought they might be worth something someday.)

  8. What a pretty little blue tree. I've never seen anything quite like that!
    Love the ornament :0). I'll bet your tree looks fab this year. Can't wait to see it.
    Enjoy your blue Monday!

  9. Good afternoon! I love that little vintage tree. Is that what they call a brush tree?
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. I want that tree! My own aunt used to have a pink Christmas tree, and we once had a white Christmas tree. But I've never had a blue one, and the one in your photo is so sweet!

  11. What a beautiful tree. I like the silver on the tips of the branches. You bulb is so pretty. I think I love the glass ornaments the best.

  12. It is a very pretty tree and adds a little Christmas spirit to the house even though it is small but really pretty!!!

  13. Oh, such a pretty tree! Thank you for sharing!

  14. I apologize. Please forgive me. I thought incorrectly, and I spoke too quickly. Blue it always was! Who knew? Not me!

  15. The vintage tree is unique. I love your blue and silver ornament and also the ornaments on your previous post. Happy Blue Monday.

  16. Very pretty, and I love your vintage ornament. Thanks so much for sharing, and thank your aunt for letting us peep at her tree, too!

    Happy Blue Monday!

    Sheila :-)

  17. Here is a lovely Christmas prose...
    "The Unexpected Gift"
    I hope it helps you treasure your family this season...
    (it is my latest work)

    Thank you and many blessings...I really am happy to have found your blog :)

  18. This tree is great! My mom has a similar bottle brush tree in regular old green.
    Do you have a place in your house where you could put a smaller tree w/ your woodland friends?

  19. Oh your Aunt's tree is gorgeous. And she has a very unusual name, it's so pretty !

  20. Oh, I do love the blue tree. It is so sweet. I am partial to the glass ornaments and especially the vintage ones. Take a picture and post it. smile.

    Good luck in the drawing tonight. Remember this goes for six days so come and visit each day. I love to hear from you.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  21. Lovely blue. I would like to see the black bears. Sounds interesting.
    Hope you had a happy Blue Monday.

  22. Your Christmas tree is beautiful! Christmas trees are not just for the indoors anymore but they are also for the outdoors as well. Before this, Christmas trees were found only inside people's homes.

  23. I love that blue tree. I sometimes so miss the vintage christmas decorations. If I had a bigger house I would consider having just a vintage reminds me of being a young girl at my grandmas on christmas.

  24. I love all the blue Christmas tree decorations. They look so peaceful and serene.
    Your blog looks so pretty and Christmasy!

  25. I like the silver tipped branches on your tree and the blue/silver combo on the Christmas ball.
    Thanks for your visit and comments yesterday.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
