A Little Vintage Christmas

                                 We are getting some snow here today so it is actually
                              looking like Christmas already,although it probably
                                  won't last more then a day or two this time ...but soon!

                                                              Anyway, this summer I bought a box of vintage
                                                             Christmas ornaments at a yard sale.
                                                                 And I bought an old white Christmas
                                                                tree as well for a few dollars. I never
                                                                thought I would buy a white tree but I
                                                                am kind of liking it.

                                                                     They are so delicate.
                                                      Yesterday, a friend and I had fun doing
                                                                 some Christmas decorating in the Gardener's
                                                                Cottage which becomes the Christmas Cottage
                                                                this time of year. So when it is all ready for the
                                                                season I will do a little photo shoot for you.

                                                                I am hoping the snow hangs around for me
                                                               to get out with my camera......I have always
                                                                loved the beauty of that first snow fall!

                                                                                             Enjoy your weekend!

Absolutely gorgeous! Looking at these lovely decorations brings back very fond memories of childhood Christmases past. Thank you so much for sharing.

Oh Carolyn. I remember those kinds of ornaments! Yes I do.

You know what? I've been looking for a white tree, too. Have lots of pink I want to put on one.

Yours is looking quite stunning. Susan

Those are beautiful vintage ornaments. The white tree fits in so well with your decor.

Hi Carolyn,
I love vintage ornaments. I've managed to save some of my family's from childhood. They bring back lovely memories!
This is the first year that I won't have a white tree, Sigh. Our big flocked tree was over 25 years old and regrettably we had to finally let it go after having tied up the branches for so many years. There was no shame for that tree. It had a good life. I haven't found one I like near the same quality.
I think this christmas I will use a grouping of several smaller trees in our living room, rather than a single large tree, until I commit to just the right white tree! Lol It has already begun!
Have FUN and enJOY the wintry landscape!

It looks so pretty already, Carolyn! I can't wait to see more. It sounds like you found some good yard sale bargains with that tree and the ornaments. Flurries expected here tomorrow and Monday. We had some Thursday afternoon as well, but it didn't amount to much. Thankfully!

Your white tree looks beautiful in your little cottage, Carolyn! Those ornaments remind me of those my mother always decorated with. They are long gone now, unfortunately. Enjoy the weekend.
