Vintage Christmas Decor

As an antique dealer, many people say to me..."well, you must have the best..._(fill in the blank)_...  No, that isn't true.  We sell the "best" and keep the "rest."  Here is a little tour of the trees I put up this year.











I love this barn one.








The candy cane was made by my friend's grandma in 1975 or 1976 - Grandma Klein - I think of her each year when I put it on my tree.



This little sanda mouse was one of my childhood ornaments - it wouldn't be a tree without it.



My mom would always tie an ornament to one of my gifts.  This one is even in her handwriting - I treasure them!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

The trees are lovely, Jacky! I remember crocheting the candy canes. I wonder what happened to all of them? I love all of the trees and decorations! They are truly vintage! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

Very beautiful! We have inherited a bunch of the shiny brite ornaments from his grandmother. Merry Christmas!
