I have decided that our family is going to decorate all vintage or reproduction vintage from now on!
So to help that happen, I purchased a few items on Ebay…
One was a lot of Christmas items from children's books
Love the graphics and I had not seen either of these books before!
Then there were the different banks Christmas Club cards…
and a wonderful OLD red wreath! And a little mini one I am going to decorate and put up in my dollhouse…
From banks in New Jersey and New York.
There is a seller on Ebay ( vintholidays) that I used to buy from on Etsy, she went to Ebay and has done really well for herself! I buy one of her OOAK new putz houses every year. This is the one I was lucky to win this year…I just adore them!!!!
Look at the details!
A mixture of old and new that works great…:)
My other love this Christmas is the old tin reflectors…
This all came from one auction and I got it sooo cheap! Love them all…
Look at the original price!!! Yes please, lets make some more now!
This box was full to the brim!
The next item is my Moms….
I just really LOVE this tin…see the residue from the piece of tape???
She would put on on every tin every year and put cookies she had baked in them. I just love that I have this memento of my Christmases with my folks!
I also got the creative bug the other night, I got my sister- in- laws name for Christmas and I wanted to make her something….
Totally different than the other wreath. These are plastic balls and an old garland I had…I hope she likes it! :)
So…onto the decorating…I really dread it, but it should be easier this year with Chris here. It is a LOT of work, but I need to get busy. When I get it all done I will take photos to share…thanks for stopping by…
