When it comes to Holiday decorations my first love is anything handmade . . .
My second love is anything vintage.
Over the past few years I have been slowly growing my collection of vintage Holiday decorations.
I love how they give my home a touch of character and history.
Today I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite vintage decorations in my collection.
The foundation of any vintage holiday collection are of course vintage ornaments.
I've been so blessed to have found quite a few that make me smile.
This little white church is a new addition to my collection this year.
I love it so much - - it lights up (not sure if it's safe to use the original wiring - - would you?) and plays Joy To The World.
Mostly I love it so much because it reminds me of a little white house my grandma put out every year.
Vintage silver bells are always a favorite of mine and what better time to use them then in December.
This tiny silver tree is also a new addition to my collection.
I'd love to add a handful more of them.
Vintage postcards and cards always make me smile.
Arranged in a small wooden tote they look very festive I think.
Ah, vintage Christmas tablecloths - - can you get more delightful than this!
Oh to have lived in a time when tablecloths were a must!
I wish it were a trend that would come back.
Of course you need to throw in a little something unexpected . . .hence the red tractor and trailer.
My favorite collection of all.
This year instead of digging out my whole collection I picked only my favorites to use - - I'm loving the paired down look.
You all know how much I love making glitter houses, but this year I actually started a collection of vintage putz house after finding this beauty at my local thrift store. I have a feeling this is one collection that is bound to grow.
And finally, unique decorations like this wreath are always a fun thing to use.
Have a great day everyone!
